The Eclipse is over. Now what?

The North American solar eclipse of 2024 is over but, what do we do with our glasses now? Rather than throwing them away, why not donate them to school children in South America so they can see the eclipse in October 2024?

Eclipse Glasses USA ensures that children in various countries can marvel at this celestial event without risking their eyesight. The company will send glasses to schools in South America so children can see the eclipse.

Ship your glasses to:
