SOL on the Baikal lake
On a ski trip with blind and deaf people on the Baikal lake in Siberia, French SOL Ambassador Jean Nerve took the opportunity to distribute 250 Vuarnet sunglasses to the local people.
Lake Baikal is located in Siberia. It is 640 km long and 80 km wide, with a maximum depth of 1640 m. It is the largest amount of liquid fresh water in the world.
This year in February a group of non-blind and non-hearing people spent a week skiing on the frozen lake and the mountains around its shores. The purpose of this expedition was to make known their handicap, to prove that it did not prevent them from acting and to go to distribute to the local people sunglasses to protect their eyes from the UV of the sun.
Mission accomplished !
We did not get lost in this white desert
We did not fall into the water at 0 degrees
We marveled at the darkness of the Siberian nights
And together with all my sightless and hearing impaired friends, we poured together a few drops of warm and salty emotions into this ocean of frozen fresh water

Shades Of Love goes Southamerica
Shades Of Love expands its scope and is now active in South America.
Assistance for the indigenous tribes in the highlands of the Andes is organized and run by Niklas Huppman, our new ambassador for South.
Please read more about Shades Of Love in Southamerica here!

SHADES OF LOVE IN SOUTHAMERICA
In addition to Machu Picchu, there is another phenomenon in the highlands of the Andes.
As in the Himalayas many hundreds of indigenous tribes are exposed to intense and extremely damaging UV radiation all year. Experts fear that climate change will worsen the problem further, due to the ozone layer disappearance on Bolivia, Peru and Chile.
This circumstance encouraged Niklas Huppmann, student, socially committed outdoor freak and young businessman from Munich, to join Jürgen Altmann and Shades Of Love.
The vision of reducing the rate of eye diseases in the Andes and to spread the social principle and direct support of Shades Of Love, now became a mission.
Regardless of the “Himalayan Eyewear Project” but in close cooperation with Shades Of Love and Jürgen Altmann, new and used sunglasses, with a professional cleaning and UV protection of 300/400, will be collected and distributed by the tribes in the highest mountain areas of South America.
After having finished his diploma of university-entrance and with full commitment and enthusiasm, it is now time for the “Glasses Andean Project” and to collect as many sunglasses in order to distribute in 2017 in Bolivia, Peru and Chile.
If you like to offer your used sunglasses a new home in South America, please send them directly to the AROMA Kaffee Bar or leave them in one of our many collection-points.
Here you find the contact details of Niklas Huppmann.
