OWNDAYS Makes Advocacy Approachable With These Three Eyewear Cases
OWNDAYS recently launched its newest CSR campaign to follow their largely successful 'Eye Camp' project that provided eyewear to those in need. Named 'Cases for Change', OWNDAYS partnered with three foundations that aim to empower their own specific causes. With regards to their goal, OWNDAYS Philippines Managing Director Vohne Yao had this to say, "[it's] to give back to society by allowing our customers to support their causes. We have chosen these non-profit organizations to help them promote anmal welfare, environmental protection and child empowerment. We're aiming to raise up to a million Pesos for each of them." Scroll through to find out what foundations you can support:
1/3 World Vision Philippines
World Vision Philippines is concerned with the over-all well-being of Filipino children. "This year, we're focusing on digital education. We are hoping that as we all work together and support Cases for Change, we are able to make Filipino communities and our society look more beautiful" says Jun Godornes, Resource Development Director. World Vision has always been at the forefront of supporting children around the world — be it mentally, physically, spiritualy, and even financially. Their advocacy is one that was founded and developed by Robert Pierce in 1950.

An average of about 200 dogs and cats per month are put down or euthanized in city pounds everywhere. “Our advocacy is actually to prevent them from being rescued in the first place by making people aware of how they should be responsible pet owners, We hope you have some time to come over and show your support for PAWS to help us make a better change for the animals.” says Anna Hashim-Cabrera, Executive Director.
3/3 World Wildlife Fund for Nature Philippines
“Our environmental efforts are furthered and we make sure that present and future generations get to see and experience the beauty that the world has to offer.” says Dan Ramirez, Communications and Media Manager. Cases For Change will help contribute to the conservation initiatives and projects of World Wide Fund For Nature Philippines.
“Cases For Change is quite a simple concept. When you buy a collaboration case, 100% of sales will go to the non-profit organization so they can do what they do best: make the world look more beautiful. Help us make a change and make this dream come true...” Yao addded. So if you're looking to help out in an effortless way, visit an OWNDAYS store near you.
