Article One Eyeglasses Let You Do a Lot of Good in One Shot


“Nepal” frames from Article One

I am Mitten Proud. Born and raised in Michigan, the only time I have spent living outside of Michigan was while I was in optometry school. When given the opportunity, I love supporting Michigan businesses. When I found an eyeglasses manufacturer with Michigan roots, I couldn’t wait to bring it in to Blink Eyecare. Can you imagine my excitement when I learned the co-founders are graduates of Eastern Michigan University, my alma matter?!?

But I soon learned there was so much more to celebrate by supporting Article One. This is a feel good kind of company with a mission to combat vitamin A deficiency.

Without proper amounts of vitamin A, children can go blind or even die. But, because this is primarily a problem in developing countries, most of the U.S. isn’t aware of the pervasiveness of vitamin A deficiency and its devastating consequences in poverty-stricken areas of the world.

For every frame that is purchased, Article One makes a donation is to Helen Keller International that is enough to ensure two children receive the vitamin A supplements they need for an entire year.

If you would like to try on some Article One frames, just stop on by Blink Eyecare anytime. You can also schedule an appointment online to see me about updating your prescription.
