Warby Parker Glasses: Buy A Pair, Give a Pair

http://www.warbyparker.com/

New Collection

So this site is REALLY cool – and it actually works the way they say it does.  Pick the frames you want to try, they ship it to you (incredibly quickly may I add), you mark off the ones you want in the colors you want, send it back, (all free shipping), just send them your prescription and viola!  A full pair of glasses in a couple of days, COMPLETE, lenses and all, for $95.  And the real plus about this all, for every pair of glasses they sell, they give a pair to someone in need!!  Great way to donate and get a cool pair of frames.  Yes, they aren’t quite as nice as a $300 or $400 pair of Gucci ones, but for the price, they’re pretty damn nice 🙂  But if you just can’t forsake those designer frames, and you need a stylish spare pair and want to contribute to a worthy cause, I highly recommend this site!
