Waveborn is a sunglasses company combining affordable fashion with social good. For each pair of Italian designed and handcrafted shades you purchase, Waveborn provides a new pair of prescription eyeglasses or funds a portion of a vision-restoring cataract surgery for a person in need through their partners Unite for Sight and SEE International.
Director of Business Development at Waveborn, Mike Malloy, is a personal friend of mine from high school. He is a great guy, and he introduced me to his brand and the mission behind their company. I was immediately drawn to the idea, because what is better than fashion? Fashion that can help people and make a difference in the world. Sign me up!
Today Waveborn is launching their crowdfunding campaign to increase their styles, colors, and your ability to give for 2013. I have donated myself, and I am looking forward to sporting some Waveborn shades on my upcoming outfit posts this spring and summer.
Check them out, rock some shades, and give some sight this spring!
