VSP Vision Care Pledge for the Boys & Girls Club and $200 Visa Giftcard Giveaway

As a child my parents took great care to make sure I was healthy and that included check-ups to eye care professionals.  Even though some of family did to need wear glasses later in life, my parents concern & care about proper eye care did help me.  I didn’t have to wear glasses until I was an adult and of course I now like to joke that I would be walking around blind if I didn’t wear my glasses. :) My teen son does wear glasses for seeing objects at a further distance and I’m thankful–that just like my parents did with me–I take him annually (or twice a year) to check his vision.

Eye health plays a critical role in your child’s ability to learn, play and develop. And, unfortunately, one in four students across the country has a visual impairment problem, many of which have gone undiagnosed.

To bring attention to the importance of eye health, VSP Vision Care launched the VSP Eye Pledge campaign, a free and easy way to donate an eye exam and glasses to a Boys & Girls Club member in need.  VSP has pledged to donate up to 50,000 eye exams worth more than $19 million dollars!

 

Taking the VSP Eye Pledge is totally free for you and only takes a few seconds, just follow these three easy steps:

 (2)  Pledge to take care of your eye health, which is an integral part of your overall health

 (3)  Direct the donation to either the local club of your choice (by inserting your zip code) or a club in the U.S. with the most need.

The pledge is a free and easy way to donate an eye exam and glasses to a Boys & Girls Club member in need. For every pledge someone takes, VSP will donate an eye exam and brand new pair of glasses to a Boys & Girls Club member on their behalf. It only takes a few seconds and is a great way to give back to your local Boys & Girls Club and change the life of a child.
To bring even greater attention to this great cause, VSP is offering a $200 Visa Giftcard as a giveaway!

  4. I took the pledge because family members and my boyfriend have varying eyesight issues.

  5. I’ve needed glasses since I was in elementary school and I know the importance of good eye-sight so thats why I took the pledge!

  6. (1) I took the Pledge
    (2) As someone who has had to wear glasses for distance since Junior High School, eye health and care is very important to me, the fact that doing something so simple can help a child whose family may not be able to provide them with glasses a pair touches my heart!

    Thanks for hosting, great cause, great giveaway!

  7. I took the pledge because healthy eyesight is essential for a better life.

  8. I took the pledge! My grandmother had catarac issues and had to have a transplant. I’m glad someone was there for her when she needed them. And everyone in my family has glasses so I’m aware of the chances of my eyes going to pot on me! And I want to make sure that I keep my eyes healthy, as well as my kids, with regularly scheduled checkups!

  9. i took the pledge! eye health is important b/c we only have our 2 eyes, and we dont have good medical substitutes available yet

  10. I took the pledge because I feel it is very important to a childs education to have proper vision.

  11. I took the pledge and eye health is very important to me because I feel that vision problems impair a child’s ability to learn and can have lifelong consequences.

  13. I took the pledge because I know how important it is to take care of your eyes. I have chronic iritis and if I do not take care of it I could sustain nerve damage and loss of sight.

  14. We’re all pretty blind as bats in my family…so, I know how important it is to have regular eye checkups…So, important!

  15. Eye health is very important to our family because we have awful vision and need to have our eyes checked every so often.

  17. I took the pledge because I know how expensive and important eye care is. I have been wearing glasses since 10 years old and know my learning would have been hindered if I did not have an eye exam.

    My son was born with congenital ptosis. Eye care is very important to him as well as his routine appointments.

  19. I took the pledge! Children can’t do well in school if they can’t see properly. It’s important that all children have access to regular check-ups and eyewear if needed. (I’ve worn glasses myself since I was 15.)

  20. I took the pledge because I have a deeper understanding of what eye care can mean. It was through an eye exam I got the information that led me to find out my daughter’s brain tumor was back.

    There are more reasons than sight to see the doc.

    Thank you.

  22. I referred my friend Lori M to take the pledge.

  28. I took the pledge and am happy to share b/c I used to wear glasses in junior high. kind of liked it but then i realized why i was wearing them. fortunately, i now have 20/20 vision and am super thankful for it. In contrast, my sis, whom is a Dr. can barely see if she doesn’t have her contacts or lens’s on. Seeing is everything. It can protect you from what you need to know and not know!

  29. Bren Herrera mentioned this post, and it’s a great thing that you’re doing! I wear glasses out of necessity, but also for ‘style’ reasons. I like the look of them. Regardless, I know that having vision is a blessing no matter what, so it’s an important thing to take care of if you can.

  30. Jeffery Ewald says:

    I took the VSP Eye Pledge so that I may be able to help someone, whether a boy or a girl, that desperately needs the help who cannot, or is not able to afford it, so that it can help benefit them now, and in the future.

  31. Jeffery Ewald says:

    I subscribed to MamiofMultiples via e-mail.

  32. I took the pledge because it was an easy way to help someone! Eye health is important to me because I wear glasses & want to be able to see my daughter grow up! erinbdisney *at* hotmail *dot* com

  33. I took the pledge because I have been wearing glasses since second grade. I am now 28 and go to the eye doctor every single year. I have an enlarged optic nerve so they have to closely monitor it to see if I am loosing any periferal vision. My eyes are so bad my contacts are not commercially available and have to be special ordered. (they are a -13.50). I want to keep my eyes as healthy as possible even if I have low vision!

  34. Abby Falcon says:

    My entire family has always worn glasses. Checking our eyes is totally necessary. Without getting our eyes checked and our glasses adjusted to their proper strength, my family has suffered headaches, health issues, blurry vision and much more. Its a common fact of life for us so we try our hardest to maintain proper eye health. We proudly support and are glad that VSP has created the Eye Pledge to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of America. No child should have to suffer from vision problems. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway.
