A couple of quick things. We’re trying to get our house ready to put on the market (we’re just moving within the same city, not across country), so I finding I have less time to write for the next few weeks. I’m also finding about a thousand of those lens cleaning cloths, but that’s a different story. While I always love to get your stories and posts, now I’m going to send out an extra call. I’d love any posts you’d like to write – the story of how you found out your child needs glasses; a tip or strategy that’s worked for you; a book review; a question; etc. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Second thing, a group called Eye Care for Kids is currently in the running for the Pepsi Refresh Project, which awards $250,000 to the top two vote-getting ideas. Eye Care for Kids provides serves visually impaired, low income children in the state of Utah, USA. They would use the money if they won to provide 4,000 kids in Utah with free eye exams and glasses. You can vote for their project every day until Feb. 28. It does require that you login with your email address, or a facebook account.
