Giving back Social and Environmental responsibility are important with us at nv. We applaud serious commitments to socially responsible actions. Giving back to the community in any form is good thing. We also appreciate that not everyone cares about the same things in the same way. What’s important to us may not be important to you. To support these convictions, we’ve partnered with Canada Helps. Their wide reach solved the dilemma of how we can offer support in and outside our community. And do it in a way that allows you to decide what’s important to you.
Make It Count
With each optical purchase over $100 you will receive a $10 donation card via Canada Helps. Use this card to any of the 85,000 recognized charities by the Canada Revenue Agency. Let us know your email address and we’ll email you the donation card. It will be ready to donate to any Canadian charity at canadahelps.org after your purchase. It’s that easy.
