Blink Eyewear is proud to support initiatives in our community and around the world.
These are some of the programs we are involved with:
Optometry Giving Sight
Helps to fund programs in developing countries that deliver eye care and low-cost glasses
- Helps to fund programs that train local eye care professionals
Lions Recycle for Sight Program
Have an old pair of glasses you no longer use? Want to make a difference in the quality of life of someone less fortunate? Bring in your old glasses and we’ll donate them to Lions Recycle for Sight, a program which sorts and distributes used glasses to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact
World Partnership Walk
Blink Eyewear participates and donates to the World Partnership Walk. This walk raises funds to help tackle poverty on many fronts: improving access to quality education and health, creating economic opportunities for men and women and building strong communities and local institutions.
Calgary Food Bank
Every December we run our “Help us Help the Food Bank” Campaign.
With every food bank donation we give a discount on eyewear purchases.
Calgary Wish List with the Calgary Drop-in Centre
Every Christmas, Blink Eyewear sponsors someone from the Calgary Drop-in and Rehab centre to grant them their wish of sight. Our optometrist donates an eye exam and we donate a complete pair of glasses.
Dress for the Cause
With one of our team members being a survivor, Blink Eyewear is proud to join in on the fight against breast cancer. Every year, we don our Pink Bra’s and raise money for the cause.
Syrian Refugees in Calgary
Blink Eyewear is proud to help our new Canadians. We provide eye exams and glasses to the newly arrived.
Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association
Blink Eyewear sponsors soccer and baseball teams in the Royal Oak and Rocky Ridge community.
