Buddy is really passionate about World Sight Day and he'd love it if you would post your favorite shades, tag @TOMS and use the hashtag #beshady.
The purpose of this day is to raise awareness for visual impairment and blindness worldwide. Here's why:
285 million people are visually impaired or blind.
80% of visual impairment worldwide can be cured or prevented.
9 out of 10 people with visual impairment live in developing countries.
Individuals with vision loss often have to give up their jobs or other income generating activities.
Over 12 million children worldwide have visual impairment that can be improved with glasses.
2/3 of people who are blind are female. And Buddy loves the ladies.
So let's get on board, support World Sight Day and of course, TOMS. Don't forget that when you buy a pair of shades from TOMS, they give a pair of glasses to someone in need.
