We are very excited to announce our partnership with Vilachá Eyewear® (vilacha.eu), a premium independent designer and manufacturer of handcrafted sunglasses based in Europe. As part of this growing company’s social responsibility initiative, they have agreed that for every pair of sunglasses purchased on their web site between November 25th and December 21st using promo code “Guiding Eyes”, Guiding Eyes will receive $100 — $50 directly from the consumer and another matching gift of $50 from Vilachá Eyewear®! With 500 pairs of sunglasses eligible for matching gifts through this campaign, we have the opportunity to receive a very substantial donation that will support our life-changing programs and services.
Miguel Vilachá, the brand’s designer remarks, “Since our early start, we pledged that if we were to have success in what we were doing, we had the obligation to give back in some significant way to a cause that mattered to us, in which we could make a great impact and not only get personal satisfaction from it, but hopefully lead other companies to do the same. We chose Guiding Eyes for the Blind because of its unparalleled reputation and inspiring mission.”
Guiding Eyes for the Blind and Vilachá Eyewear® share a spirit of innovation that drives both to push conventional boundaries to produce exceptional results. Miguel continues, “Guiding Eyes’ and Vilachá Eyewear® both strive for excellence. From the school’s selective breeding program to its Special Needs Program, Guiding Eyes has established itself as a leader in the sector. We think Vilachá Eyewear’s iconic design and philosophy complement this pioneering approach.”
We hope others are inspired by this company’s commitment to directing its time, energy and resources to a cause that has moved them. We are honored to have been chosen as Vilachá Eyewear’s® charity partner.
