Scholarship Sunnies

Blenders Eyewear Supports College Education for U.S. Youth

— January 14, 2013 — Social Good
Blenders Eyewear supports college education scholarships and awards with their sunglasses company. Blenders Scholarship Program supports students in the United States to go to school and also pursue things like start-ups, community development, volunteer programs and general travel.

The collections offered all have very California names, such as Hollywood, Joyride, Catfish, Buttercat, Wet Electric and Gummibears Polarized. The glasses themselves -- so bright and poppy that it's almost blinding -- also reflect the San Diego-based brand. The brand itself exudes optimism, not only through its sunglasses in terms of their design but also through the scholarships program that encourages students to grab life by its horns.
