Giving the Gift of Sight
Many of us take for granted the ability to read the chalkboard or see the newspaper. Imagine however, if you could not do these things and the limitations that would put on your ability to do well in school or hold a job.
In May 2008, VP, Group Sales Manager, Jackie Molligo traveled to Cambodia as a volunteer on a two-week mission with Give the Gift of Sight, a Luxottica Group Foundation that provides free vision care and eyewear to underprivileged individuals in developing countries around the world. With the assistance of her colleagues at News America Marketing, Jackie collected over 1,700 pairs of discarded and unused prescription glasses that were repurposed during the mission. During her time in Cambodia, the volunteers, made up of individuals from around the globe, helped almost 18,000 Cambodians receive eye examinations and prescription glasses that literally gave them the “gift of sight”.
