The impact of the combined efforts of a community far outweighs that of a few individuals, so we decided to invite like-minded individuals to join with us to raise a much-needed $10,000 for VisionSpring's programs. Many of us have benefited from some of India's greatest exports - yoga and mediation - and as conscientious citizens of the world we know what it means to make a difference in the lives of others!

Through VisionSpring's innovative, preventative philanthropy model, thousands of rural Indians are saved from the debilitating, poverty-inducing effects of sight loss. For India's working poor - tailors, electricians, goldsmiths, mechanics and others who work with their hands - the loss of sight means the loss of their jobs and income. Reading glasses are one of the simplest, most affordable tools that we can provide to make a huge and immediate impact on peoples' lives.
