Architecture for Humanity hit close to home when I found out they partnered with FEMA to help rebuild homes in Moore, Oklahoma. I watched live last summer as the tornadoes ripped through the town in my home state, leaving people and families homeless.
No bites of my life? Don't be alarmed, I'm taking a break from my Monday morning "bites" post to tell you about something way more exciting. I’m talking about Warby Parker’s new special edition collaboration that is being launched today!
When Warby Parker contacted me seeing if I would be interested in helping spread the word about their collab, I was more than happy to; not two mention the new frames are fantastic. Warby Parker teamed up with Architecture for Humanity to celebrate their 15th anniversary by designing two new streamlined frames. Both of these companies are admired for their graciousness of giving back. Architecture for Humanity works to make improvements in vulnerable communities, so kids and individuals have a safe place to learn and live. Similarly, Warby Parker built their company with the mission that for every pair of glasses sold; they will give a pair of glasses to someone in need.
The Architecture for Humanity collaboration features one pair of eyeglasses in two colors, and one pair of sunglasses. They went with an architecture approach by using materials that are built to last.

I have my eye on those aviators. I used to have a pair of glasses similar to the Fowlers and loved how classic and timeless they were. The three frames are all only $145.
Shop with a purpose by choosing Warby Parker. A portion of these glasses will go to the Arch for Humanity foundation and as always a pair will be donated by WP to someone in need. I love getting to share about these great products and even better companies. I hope you check out the special collection!
