The first time I came across Jonas Paul Eyewear, I was pregnant and a sea of emotion. As I usually do, when I discover a new company, I headed to their “about” page to find out more on the creators and learn about their story. What I found was an emotional video of two parents, sharing their struggles and fears as they discovered their newborn son was visually impaired. Their story was so heart felt and inspiring, it left me with tears streaming down my face and a love for what their company was creating. In that moment I knew I wanted to help share their story and desire to provide vision to children near and far.
Ben and Laura founded the company to create stylish eyewear for their son, Jonas, after discovering the children’s market was greatly lacking modern frames. They create glasses that don’t just provide sight, but that also allow kids to feel confident and stylish. Since launching the company last year, the response has been amazing. They have even been featured in the Wall Street Journal! Their frames leave me wishing they made them in adult sizes. Glasses were definitely not this cool when I was in school! Check out their gorgeous collections for boys and girls or find out what they are currently up to on their BLOG.
And if you didn’t LOVE this brand enough, they have also created a wonderful campaign called Buy Sight, Give Sight. For each pair of Jonas Paul Eyewear frames purchased, they give support to CBM International to bring vision to a person in need through a pair of glasses or corrective surgery. It’s possible for even the smallest companies to positively impact the world around us, and Jonas Paul Eyewear not only seeks to inspire style and provide purpose, but they also meet the needs of those who’s vision is compromised and need help.
