In November of 2017, Idaho-based Proof Eyewear traveled to Nepal in an effort to give something back to the community there. Working with HELP International, the eyewear company volunteered on a project to help combat sex trafficking, while supporting efforts to improve vocational empowerment as well as visual and dental health. Along the way they contributed more than $16,000, helped restock the medical supplies of a Nepali village, conducted health screenings of 468 people, and gave out more than 500 pairs of glasses. And as you’ll see in the video below, they also had quite an adventure along the way. This is a heartwarming and wonderful story in a time when we could all use a little good news.
