3. What did he discover? (13 million kids need glasses but can't afford them)

4. What did he decide to do? (Leave boxes in optometrist's eye-clinics for people to donate their used glasses. Sent them to poor countries.)

Optional Activity

Have a 'Recycle your Specs Drive', collecting used pairs of glasses. Ask local optometrists if they can collect used glasses for you.
