Today I’m giving away these eyeglass cases that come with readers. They’re not bad cases, but they don’t really do anything to protect the glasses so I always end up putting my readers into one of my hard cases that can go into my purse and hold their own up against my wallet, keys, gum, pens, phone, etc. I do terrible things to glasses, drop them, sit on them, put them in a pocket with scratchy keys, step on them even. These cases will not stand up to the abuses of my clumsiness and general lack of coordination. I also like to clean my glasses and these cases don’t really hold one of those little lens clothes. To be honest, I can’t imagine anyone finding them useful, but I’m going to give them away in the hopes that someone more clever than me can repurpose them and give them a new life.
They’re going to the Goodwill. I have been told by a number of people that I need to find a more creative destination for my stuff. I will work on that, but in the meantime, I think the Goodwill is a great organization and I’m happy to support them. They provide employment for people who might otherwise struggle to find jobs, people with limited means can find good stuff without spending a lot of money, and they’re epic recyclers. Everything in their stores would probably be in landfill if it wasn’t for them. Check it out http://www.goodwill.on.ca
