VISION TO LEARN NAMED 2022 KRISTOF HOLIDAY IMPACT PRIZE HONOREE
Every year since 2009, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof has written a “holiday gift guide” column to support little known organizations working to make the world a better place. The Kristof Holiday Impact Prize connects readers interested in philanthropic giving to causes worthy of their support.
Vision To Learn is honored to be a 2022 Holiday Impact Prize honoree. Funds raised from this award will help tens of thousands more students get the vision screenings, eye exams and glasses they need to succeed in school, and in life.
Vision To Learn is making sure that access to a pair of glasses never stands between children and their ability to see the board, read a book, or participate in class. It is such a cost-effective yet powerful way to improve a child’s learning experience and make sure they do not fall behind. Vision To Learn helps some of hardest-to-reach children and your donations will mean more students receiving the eye care and glasses they need to learn and live clearly.”— Nicholas Kristof,
Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times columnist
Help Students See a Path to Success
Most children in low-income communities across the country – urban and rural – do not have the glasses they need to see the board, read a book, or participate in class. Vision To Learn is working to ensure that all kids have the glasses they need to succeed in school and in life.
Vision To Learn provides vision screenings, eye exams and glasses to every child who needs them, all free of charge to the child and their family. The organization has helped more than two million of the nation’s hardest-to-reach children in more than 750 low-income communities across the country. About 85 percent are Black and Latino children and more than 90 percent are from families who live in poverty.
Research shows that students who are provided with the glasses they need do better in school and have better life outcomes. Your contribution to Vision To Learn will help provide more children with vision screenings, eye exams and glasses, which will give them the opportunity to learn, grow and succeed.
