MarkEyewar & ART4SPORT
Every pair of glasses purchased online at www.markeyewear.com gives us the chance to donate € 5 to charity for the purchase of prostheses used in sports.
As a social commitment, MarkEyewear has decided to donate to the ONLUS ART4SPORT association a certain amount of money for each pair of glasses sold.
ART4SPORT is a charity that aims at providing prostheses to children and teenagers who have had limb amputation, believing in sports as therapy. A great example is the Paralympic fencing champion Bebe Vio, a gold medal winner at the Paralympics of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The association was inspired by the story of Beatrice Vio (Bebe). At the age of 11 she was struck by a very serious disease that led to the amputation of the four limbs. Her strong passion for fencing and the desire to start living again, led the Bebe family to take action and learn about sports prostheses and sports equipment for young people with this type of disability.
The association was created to be a reference point for children and young people with this type of disability, who love sports.
MarkEyewear is a brand of eyewear that was born in Veneto, more precisely near Venice. All prescription and sunglasses are produced in the Cadore area (world homeland for eyewear production).
MarkEyewear decided to donate a quota of each prescription and sunglasses sold, to the ART4SPORT association, mostly because it was struck by Bebe Vio’s story, but also because of the geographical proximity with this association.
