How it works

Because we believe clear sight is a right, every purchase you make helps restore vision to people in need.

  • 01
    You buy
    a pair

    One pair purchased
    =
    one pair donated

  • 02
    We donate
    each month

    However many pairs we sell, we make a donation to cover the cost of giving away the same number overseas

  • 03
    Glasses are
    distributed

    Our non-profit partners give out glasses and train local people to provide eye care

  • 04
    We change
    lives

    Someone can now learn and work towards achieving their full potential

The Right Way

Simply giving without building a sustainable model can create problems as well as solve them. We make a point of helping the right way.

Locally
We only work with locally staffed organisations who have a long-term commitment to the region. This allows a deeper understanding of local needs and ensures other vital local initiatives stay on track.

Sustainably
Instead of just distributing free glasses, people are also trained to provide eye care and glasses are sold for ultra-affordable prices whenever possible. This model is more sustainable, avoids hurting local businesses and boosts self-esteem.

Fairly
Bloobloom’s mission is to help every person in need equally. We don’t differentiate people according to their race, gender, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation or any other criteria.

Why it matters

Today 2.5 billion people around the world still don’t have access to glasses. Think about it. This simple invention that’s been around for more than 700 years could change billions of lives.

Glasses have the power to change the world.

Giving heroes

Bloobloom wants to team up with amazing organisations around the globe. Could you be one of our local heroes?

Our Heroes

Superman vs. Spiderman: who’s the greatest? We ditched that debate and came up with a better list of world-saving superpowers.

Hands-on
We’re looking for partners who work on the ground with a deep understanding of local challenges.

Empowering
We encourage initiatives that enable communities to work towards meeting their own needs in the future.

Collaborative
We don’t donate and run. We want to stay closely involved so we can help develop and improve ideas.

Fair
Everyone has to be treated fairly, regardless of their race, sex, religion or any other criteria.

Bloobloom & Vision For A Nation

Vision for a Nation has been our main partner since day 1. By making eye care accessible to the world's poorest communities, what they’ve achieved is (we think) immeasurable.
