Why I Started A Business That Gives

Posted on April 05, 2015

 

For some reason this Easter is a time of reflection for me. The quiet time lets my mind wander to all corners of life, and I'm taking stock of where things are at, what has been done, what's been achieved, and what still needs to be conquered!

My 'need to get stuff done' list is a bit longer than I would like, some things are taking longer than I would like. That's the stuff that frustrates the pants off me.

On the flip side, there are things that bring a fabulous sense of satisfaction, happiness, and elation!  That's exactly where I come to when thinking about the people whose lives have been changed as a result of Naked Specs.

Our Business For Good Contribution

If you are reading this you probably know that every time someone (perhaps you!) buys a pair of glasses from us, we give to a community development project that restores vision, prevents blindness, or helps a vision impaired person live a better life. 

So far these gifts total 8041 micro-giving acts which are distributed to our chosen projects through B1G1, plus our funding of a mobile clinic in Indonesia which screened 1011 people and treated 402 through cataract operations, eye glasses or medication.  

The lady pictured with me is Sukari, the first person to have her sight restored as a result of our giving programme.  She'd been totally blind for 10 years, and her face went from one that looked lost and empty, to one that was cheeky and joyful the instant that her eye patch was removed after her surgery.

It's impossible to put a price on restoring the sight of a person who has been blind for 10 years and I can't recount the story of Sukari without tearing up!  She, and others like her are the reason I started this business.

Enjoy your Easter, and be thankful you can see this post!

Carol Pearce, Founder

 

PS.  My thanks to Masami Sato and Paul Dunn at B1G1 for being amazing enablers for Business For Good, and to all the other business owners who are making a real difference through micro-giving acts.

How to Save your Eyeglasses screws

Posted on February 10, 2015

Having this problem of losing, breaking, locked and head of the screw damage?Screw is the component that is responsible for the stability, mobility and glasses comfort. It's the thing that brings the parts of the glasses together.

Unscrewing and loss of eyeglass screws

Once you lose a screw, replace it immediately. Use a hand matching screwdriver and screws if you're going to do it yourself. Use clear nail polish, and put it over the screw head and prevent unscrewing. Do not use any other adhesive, it may cause the color to dissolve from the glasses or can result in permanent locking of the screw.

Applying nail polish on the screws prevents unscrewing and loss.

Screw breaking

If you accidentally sit on your glasses, you'll surely break the screws on it. Once this happens, it must be replaced entirely. To avoid breaking the screws, keep your glasses in a shock resistance case.

Screw locking

How does it happen? Simply, when you put glue on it's head or you bent the temple extremely hard, it will get stuck and is hard to remove.

The screw must be cleaned up first if glue was placed on it's head.Instead of using glue, apply a nail polish and a case to protect the frame.

Screw head damage

Making wrong moves when unscrewing it, too much use of glue or using wrong screw driver might damage the screw head. To avoid this, use a proper screw driver or turn to a specialist for repairs.
