GUNNAR OPTIKS SUPPORTS VETERAN NONPROFIT OSD WITH PHILANTHROPIC MATCH INITIATIVE
FOR A $5 DONATION, CUSTOMERS RECEIVE LIMITED-EDITION PATRIOTIC CASE WITH PURCHASE OF PENDLETON BLUE LIGHT GLASSES DURING NATIONAL MILITARY APPRECIATION MONTH IN MAY
CARLSBAD, Calif. (May 5, 2020) – GUNNAR Optiks, the leader and pioneer of performance enhancing, blue light blocking glasses, joined forces with OSD (Outperform, Serve & Develop) to give back to veterans through a match donation initiative surrounding the launch of its newest frames, “Pendleton.” In support of U.S. Veterans during National Military Appreciation Month, GUNNAR released a limited-edition patriotic glasses case, which customers will receive if they donate an extra $5 with their purchase of Pendleton. GUNNAR will match each donation and give OSD 100% of the proceeds to support their award-winning veteran programs which emphasize social connectivity, professional development and community service. OSD’s Veteran Support Ecosystem™ has positively impacted over one million veterans and active military, along with their families since 2010.
“We’re humbled to have the opportunity to support OSD in their efforts to help service members and veterans as they transition from active duty to civilian life,” said GUNNAR Optiks, Director of Marketing – Gaming, Georgina Petrie. “The design of Pendleton was inspired by our military, so it’s only fitting that we partner with a charity like OSD, who’s focus on gaming is a core vehicle in their outreach that aligns with our position as No. 1 in gaming glasses.”
Pendleton features a stylish military inspired design, high-quality stainless-steel frame and is available in Slate and Moss colorways. Equipped with GUNNAR’s patented lens technology, Pendleton enhances focus, prevents dry eyes and the “Amber” lens blocks 65% of blue light emitted from digital devices. The glasses retail for $79.99 and are available in prescription.
The Pendleton glasses and limited-edition patriotic glasses case bundle is available exclusively at GUNNAR.com. This initiative will run from May 5th through May 31st or while supplies last.
“We’re thrilled to once again partner with GUNNAR in support of our military and veterans,” said Glenn D. Banton, Sr., CEO of OSD. “They have been supportive of OSD’s mission since we began in 2010 and the launch of the Pendleton glasses are an amazing way to honor our troops and continue supporting the military community through positive and impactful programs.”
In addition to this philanthropic initiative, during the month of May, individuals can nominate a military veteran for a chance to win a pair of Pendleton glasses plus the patriotic case each week.
