Sight Night is an international effort to provide used eyewear to needy people across the globe. Looking for an easy way to participate in a global act of kindness this Halloween? This may be your answer.
Instead of asking for Halloween candy, the Gogain Group will be asking for your help in and#8220;scaringand#8221; up used eyewear during October.
