Giving Without Spending: Old glasses for new owners

(Originally posted on my blog The Adventures of Frugal Girl )

This week's featured opportunity is the Lions Club. They collect used eyeglasses which are cleaned then sorted by prescription. The glasses are then distributed to those in need in developing countries.

So do you have an old pair lying around or know someone who does? Instead of letting them collect dust, let the Lions Club put them to good use. You will greatly improve the quality of someone's life. To find out where to donate in your area, go the Lions Club website at and click on "Club Locator" located on the left portion of the page. You will be given contact information for your local chapter.
