Imagine an optometrist who had a vision to provide underserved, underprivileged, and uninsured children with professional eye exams, vision screenings, and prescription eyeglasses at little or no cost.
Imagine that same person creating an organization that has helped over 400,000 children to this point and has 9 clinics in 5 states.
That sounds like social impact to me.
Let’s talk about Joseph G Carbone for a minute.
I help Joseph, a good friend and founder of EyeCare4Kids.org, with his philanthropic efforts. His non-profit has been involved with the #LightTheWorld Giving Machines (that’s how I met him originally) for multiple years.
Joseph recently received a phone call from Shaquille O’Neal’s people. Shaq 🏀 has endorsed EC4K for multiple years, and now wants use his influence in a much larger way to team up and take Joseph’s vision care services to Title I school’s in major metropolitan areas across the United States. WOW! 🤯
✨ Good attracts good. ✨
Be the good, and your influence will attract others with a similar vision and the change you want to make in the world will be manifest in ways you can’t always comprehend.
