Essilor of America: #DifferenceMakers Go on a Volunteer Mission
As part of the #DifferenceMakers campaign, Essilor of America employees and clients traveled to Southeast Asia last March to meet Essilor teams in Singapore and conduct two days of vision screening.
Launched last November, the #DifferenceMakers campaign supports Essilor’s mission of improving lives by improving sight, in order to eradicate poor vision by 2050. Over 1,100 Essilor of America employees participated in the project. They logged more than 1,400 volunteer hours and donated over $22,000 to vision charities in a mere two-month span.
During this campaign, Essilor of America employees were able to earn points on each activity. The three employees with the highest points won the contest and took part in the volunteering mission accompanied by 32 eye care professionals. With the help of local Essilor teams, they provided visual screening tests to 2,000 children in Bangkok, Thailand.
