extra pair my version

We are all touched by YouTube videos featuring the act of kindness, restoring the faith in humanity because in the bottom of our heart, we too want to do good to others. Inspired by this very true meaning of life, Pott Glasses is taking consumerism a step forward, by encompassing the act of kindness into our business.

We often ask ourself what are the things that we can do to make the world a better one, or at least the region we live in a better place. The recent East Coast Flood in Malaysia woke us up with the idea of helping the victims with a pair of glasses they need much. We visited many ‘kampung’ and schools, to come to find out that many could not afford a pair of glasses. Not only that the glasses shops are distant from where they stay, the price of glasses is just way beyond their financial capability after the cold blooded flood took everything away.

So we thought why not we do something for the community. Pott Glasses eventually came up with the idea of donating one pair of glasses to the victims for every pair we sell. The question in everyone’s mind would be why not just donate regardless of the number of glasses we sell. To make this “A Pair for Those in Need” a successful campaign, we need to ensure that it is sustainable and long lasting, thus we cannot just keep giving out. We also realise that this flood victim community is not the end of the campaign, as there are many more poor in the country who cannot afford a pair of glasses too. We will be liaising with other community to run this campaign in the near future.

Our first target is to give out 100 pairs of glasses to the primary school students in Manik Urai, Kelantan. We talked to the principle about the campaign and we received nothing but the brightest smile in the world we’ve ever seen. We promise, we will make sure that the students get the glasses that fit them well.

Now, if you are wearing a pair of Pott Glasses, we thank you very much, because there’s another person in need of glasses gets his pair thank to your purchase and support.
