Airwear Lenses’ “Breit Eyes” contest : [CLOSED Giveaway]

Screen shot 2011-09-28 at 8.52.17 AMAirwear lenses, Essilor’s lighter, safer and greener brand of polycarbonate lenses,declared Sept. 5-11, 2011,“Four Eyes Pride Week,” to encourage consumers to wear their glasses with pride! To kick off the celebration, Essilor and Airwear  partnered with iconic artist and healthy vision advocate Mary Engelbreit asked fans to change their Facebook profile picture during the week to one of themselves wearing glasses.

During “Four Eyes Pride Week” and throughout the entire month of September, Airwear and Mary Engelbreit are also asking parents to visit Airwear Lenses to enter the “Breit Eyes” contest. By submitting a photo of their child being “lighter, safer or greener” while wearing glasses, parents have a chance to win one-of-a-kind prizes from Mary Engelbreit. One lucky grand prize winner will receive an original sketch by Engelbreit in the likeness of the child in the winning photo, plus a trip to tour Engelbreit’s St. Louis studio. One runner up will receive a collection of children’s books authored and signed by Engelbreit.

Fortunately nobody in our household has had to purchase glasses, but if the kids needed them I could definitely see the benefit of having greener, safer, lighter weight glasses. The Breit Eyes contest was designed to encourage folks to show OFF their eyewear and to get people to think about the importance of safe eyewear.

Airwear lenses are thinner, lighter and more impact-resistant than standard plastic lenses while providing 100 percent UV protection. Airwear lenses are also made using environmentally conscious practices in packaging, water consumption and manufacturing waste re-use.
