New Welding Helmets For “Light The World” To Help Restore Vision

 

Your Next Welding Helmet could help do more than you think. Welders can now help contribute in helping to bring sight to the blind with the purchase of a limited-edition welding helmet from East Greenwich, R.I.-based optrel. Optrel will donate the entire purchase price of 200 special-edition welding helmets to fund 3,000 restorative eye surgeries around the world. The company is partnering with the global nonprofit company Light for the World.

 

Quote : “Thankfully, we can prevent and cure blindness at the same time. Each welder who purchases an optrel Light for the World special-edition panoramaxx helmet will not only protect his or her eyesight but help fund restorative surgery for 15 people who suffer from failing eyesight due to cataracts,” said Marco Koch, owner of optrel.
Wow! This is absolutely awesome.
