... WHILE DOING GOOD "
Monkeyglasses® is very passionate about supporting savetheorangutan.org, an organization that works to help the thousands of wild orangutans return to nature, each year being victims of the destruction of their homes in the rainforest in Borneo. But it is not only the wild orangutans who need our help. People with less resources all over the world also need glasses. Monkeyglasses® helps to collect discarded spectacles to a center in Trivandrum, India, where old glasses become alive and rejoice.
