The 5th annual Great Glasses Play Day is almost here. It’s a day to celebrate kids in glasses, eye patches, and contacts; a time to raise awareness of the importance of children’s vision issues; and a day to connect with others for support. But this year, the day is being spread across a week. We have in person events scheduled on the weekends of May 7-8 and May 14-15. Check out the list of 2016 Great Glasses Play Day events to see if there’s one near you!
We also have a lot of ways to celebrate online! Each day from May 9-13, we’ll have a different theme or question. Post on facebook, twitter, or instagram to share your story and help raise awareness. Each day, we’ll choose one participant at random and send them a selection of fantastic books about glasses, including “Grady Gets Glasses”, “Princesses Wear Glasses”, “Red’s Big Day”, and “Glasses: a board book.”
