"Hello Jon and every one that helped me get this surgery. Thank you don't seem like it's enough so I'll tell you this, I've worn glasses for about 50 yrs and along with it was headaches, blurring vision, and ever increasing prices for my glasses.  Now after the surgery I can see , I can actually see with out glasses. I feel like every morning is Christmas. I still reach to push my glasses up on my face or try to take them off at night and then I remember you guys and the blessing I receive through you all. I'm so happy and most of all thankful to you all. I know Thanksgiving God didn't hear any one but me because I was loud with my crying and being thankful that I was chosen to help. I could go on and on but I'll stop now with a heart felt thank you so much and may God give back to you a hundred fold for what you did for me. You were right Jon I can see without my glasses." -  J.A. 2015


"I just wanted to thank you and your organization for helping to restore my vision! I feel so blessed and thankful, more than you will ever know! I hope to see you soon at a meeting. I can't wait to become a Lions Club member and help others as you helped me!" -  Michele, 2014



"I know you may have received an official thank you from the school, but I also wanted to personally thank you for the difference you are making in our students by providing glasses for those who may not be able to afford them. I want you to know that you have given these kids much more than a pair of glasses. For many, they stay in the background to try to hide the fact they can't see. They don't get involved in class discussion, fall behind when taking notes, and can even have a lower self esteem because they don't realize that these circumstances are not their fault."

"From the moment these kids receive their glasses, you can see a change come over them. They walk into the classroom with a huge smile, sit up straighter, jump into conversations, and speed through notes so fast, they even have the time to help others. You give these students a sense of pride and accomplishment. You give them the fortitude to face tough challenges, and you give them the self esteem to realize their own dreams."

"I know that 'thanks' is something that is easy to say, but it can be hard to know if you're truly making a difference. As someone who is with these kids day in and day out, I want you to know that the difference is overwhelming, and it is inspiring. Thank you so much for all you do to support our students at Grapevine Middle School." - Nichole, 2015.
