The battle with avoidable blindness

CSR: Leibish announces its

collaboration with Sightsavers

Working with brilliant diamond jewelry, our eyes are open to see just how fortunate we are for our vision. Only, if your vision were stripped away, how far would you be willing to go in order to get it back?

Leibish & Co is proud to announce its collaboration with Sightsavers, an organization that is committed to fighting the battle with avoidable blindness. As a company with a visual product at its core, Leibish & Co. understands the magnitude of contributing to a cause that could provide thousands of underprivileged people with the gift of sight.

In addition to being a proud advocate for conflict-free diamonds, holding to the highest industry standards, Leibish & Co decided to guarantee a donation to Sightsavers with every purchase from the Leibish & Co website throughout the year.

“One can only appreciate the full beauty of a diamond with the ability to actually see it. Therefore, selecting Sightsavers as our charitable cause for 2018 was an easy choice” said Leibish Polnauer, President of Leibish & Co “Each small donation goes such a long way and we are so happy to be able to be making such a difference in these people’s lives.”

Every purchase on the website will automatically release a donation to the cause. It’s amazing to consider how easy it is to change the lives of so many people.

1:            $1.50 donated can buy one cataract surgery lens

2:            $40 can pay for an adult’s cataract surgery

3:            $65 pays for a child’s cataract surgery

4:            A mere $2.00 will pay for a pair of spectacles

Studies show that over 75% of sight loss can be cured or prevented altogether. Sightsavers not only aims to avoid blindness, but they also fight for disability rights. Leibish & Co. is stepping up to do its part in the hopes that they can help brighten the future of many others.
