Fundraiser: Eyewear for NYC, NY, and the World
October 14, 2020 - New York City, NY - Fundraisers
[CLOSED] THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY. TOGETHER, WE RAISED $13,810.00 USD.
When developing our sunglasses, we tested many lens colors and treatments. Ultimately, we sided with a grey nylon lens and green anti-reflective coating due to its functionality and subtle dreamy color. As we leaked the various samples, we saw an overwhelming interest in the one-off pairs. This was the perfect storm for a fundraiser. From October 7th - 14th, we raffled off six exclusive pairs of sunglasses to raise money for three awe-inspiring New York organizations. The entries ran for $10 and were unlimited. 100% of proceeds were donated to the following environmental, animal rights, and humanitarian foundations.
