Crowdfunding Newsbreak!


Yes, it's official! Thanks to the tremendous support we received during the recent crowdfunding campaign, we are proud to announce this groundbreaking stage of the establishment of an eye clinic to serve the needy. On June 3rd, we signed the rental contract for the new premises located at 5 Derech Hasharon, Tzomet Raanana-Kfar Saba. We are looking forward to the official launch shortly and encourage you, our unwavering supporter, to drop by for a visit and even to sign up as a volunteer! 
 
The Year that Was: Our 1st Anniversary Milestone

As we were crowning our first year's achievements with the rental of the new premises, we quickly slid into our very first anniversary milestone: the first anniversary of the very first email sent out to our 7 founding members on June 6th 2012. Our success wouldn't have been so without your support - moral as well as financial - and we hereby present you with a celebratory document that highlights the achievements of the past year in pictures and in words.

Pay It Forward

We were blown away by the kindness and generosity of our supporters! Not only did it bring us closer to reaching our target to raise 40,000 NIS for an eye clinic catered for the underprivileged population, but we were instrumental in Paying It Forward. Our recent crowdfunding campaign raised over 33,000 NIS. How did we do it? We created the campaign so that donors would give and get, i.e. give a donation to RE-SPECS Frames for the Needy and get a perk valued at up to 50% of the donation. And then a unique thing happened. Some of our donors asked that we Pay It Forward, meaning that the perks that they’d won be donated onward to a person in need in our community.
Isn’t that 
SPEC-tacular?
Cast Your Vote

We will have a 2-4 word slogan in the eye clinic situated near this great pic of the gorgeous kids. Slogan suggestions thus far include:
 
 

Share the Vision
   Sharing the Vision
  Seeing Eye to Eye
    Eye Care. Do You?
 
As our loyal supporter, now's the time to cast your vote: which of the above would you suggest that we use or, even better, what slogan suggestion do you have? To vote, go to our Facebook page
