I'm so excited to announce that I've partnered with TOMS to help spread awareness for World Sight Day. In case you're not familiar, World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness created to focus global attention on blindness, visual impairment and rehabilitation of the visually impaired. Today, October 10th, TOMS is asking everyone to "Be Shady" in honor of World Sight Day by wearing their sunglasses inside to help raise awareness for this very important day!
In honor of World Sight Day, TOMS has even released a pair of limited edition #BESHADY sunglasses that you can only find on their website (and for a slamming deal at $55). Just like with their shoes, when you buy a pair of TOMS shades you're helping to make a difference in the life of another. For every pair of sunglasses sold, TOMS helps a person in need by caring for their sight needs, whether that be with perscription glasses, sight-saving surgery, or medical treatment - TOMS is there to help.
TOMS Yvette Panama Tortoise sunglasses inside and out and about. Over the years my family has been immensely affected by visual impairment, and I'm more than thankful for those who have stepped up and lent a helping hand. In honor of these efforts, TOMS and I would love to encourage you to rock your shades all day today and #BESHADY with us!
-285 million people are visually impaired or blind
