Blenders Eyewear Shades for Scholarships - Summer 2012 Full Color Rollout

Our goal is to help put students through school while decking them out in affordable and stylish eyewear. Help us fill out our product line of sunglasses for summer 2012 by pledging today!

Blenders Scholarship Program: Why does it matter?

"If we’re going to have a world class education system, young people have to be able to afford to go to college and pursue postgraduate work if they’re so inclined. Not only will the country as a whole benefit, but we will be true to what has always been the essential idea and ethic of American life, which is upward mobility and opportunity; That every child can achieve their goals. We want to make sure that every child has a chance to excel and find those areas in their lives that will allow them to make the most contribution to society. We’re failing to do that now."-President Barack Obama

Through our Blenders Scholarship Program, we help put college students through school while highlighting and fueling the efforts of America's best and brightest young people. We'll start small, buying books and whatever we can, and grow from there alongside the students we support. Eventually, we aim to award substantial scholarships to students all over the country. By selecting candidates who are actively pursuing goals like starting their own businesses, traveling the world, and community growth projects, we hope to both bolster them in their efforts and inspire their classmates.

Why sunglasses?

We were tired of having to choose between expensive designer sunglasses that inevitably disappear or break, or janky beach knockoffs that can lead to conspicuous style deficiency. Blenders shades are high quality, polarized, impact resistant sunglasses, designed with passion and priced at a point that almost begs you to lose em' or break em'...for the simple pleasure of picking out that next color combo.

Why Pledge?

Your contribution to our indiegogo project will help fund our full specturm of color for summer 2012, 5 new colors, which in turn allows us to continue with our mission of helping fund scholarships for students and giving back to education!

What's the bottom line?

Every pledge goes to new shades. Every pair of shades helps students get through school. JLT (Just Like That). 

We can't wait to get you in a pair of Blenders! Thank you for your support and please contact us for questions, comments, or a surf report. The Future is Bright. Come Prepared.
