With my five-year anniversary just recently passed, do you know what sounds pretty amazing? An 85-year anniversary.
So I’m so happy to help Foster Grant celebrate theirs! You know you’re talking about a classic brand when they’ve been around for almost a century — but the story of their origin is even cooler than I realized: they literally introduced sunglasses to America in 1929! (The first pair they sold was a whopping ten cents — if only!)
It’s a mark of how much I love this brand that most days my choice is between a $400 pair of Chanel sunnies and a $20 pair of Foster Grants, and I choose the Foster Grants. They’re perfectly on trend, and amazing to mix up your look without making a huge investment. When I find a style I love, I usually grab two pairs, just in case one goes missing later on!
And Foster Grant is celebrating their anniversary with an awesome charitable project: for every pair of reading glasses they sell on readerglasses.com, they’re donating another pair to Restoring Vision, a non-profit that distributes eyewear in developing countries. They’ve already donated more than 1.5 million pairs (yes, you read that right!) and I’m so impressed that they’re providing this crucial gift to countries in need.
So if you haven’t tried a pair yet, be sure to check them out!
