How does the Donations work?
Due to the large volume of requests from schools to provide free glasses for students and staff, we have created an option to make a donation, where all proceeds (minus the Shopify Payment fee ~3%) will be used to provide free glasses to schools in need. A fixed rate of $3.50 will be used to convert the dollar amount donated into the number of glasses donated.
For large donations, we would be happy to provide you with the name of the school to which the glasses were donated. Email us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
