HELP TO REGISTER SHADES OF LOVE
Shades Of Love SOL is very proud to be one of the partners of the camp.
Three weeks of screening has began and around 5000 people of the Karu Region of Ladakh will be screened.
Mid of September will start the Eye Surgery camp, where 300 people will get a cataract operation.
THANKS so much to Padma Tashi and his amazing team of YDA organization.
This was the motto of the 3rd class students in the New Middle School Längenfeld / Tyrol. The 44 third-graders collected used sunglasses for the Himalayan Eyewear Project. The kids were really keen and have motivated the whole village to participate. 500 sunglasses were handed over by the school campaign.
Thanks for the fantastic campaign and your support.
Your sunglasses, Ms. Spielmann and Ms. Promeisl, will help the people in the Himalayas and avoid that they do not get eye infections !!!
Thanks to France
BEST & THANK YOU to Landshut & Erlangen !
Thanks to Mrs. Dressel, for an entire collection of sunglasses … !!
Thank you very much to Fam. Harri Eder for all the sunglasses no longer needed, but the population in the Himalayas needs them urgently, because of the extreme sunlight on the heights of the highest!
Thank you very much Mrs. Kei for your collection of sunglasses !
The animal rescue project galgofreedom.com collected sunglasses for the people in Himalaya.
The people in the Himalayas will thank you !!
Best regards to Landshut.

It’s already the second huge support about brand new sunglasses from the brand TOM’S
Wheels & Waves is an annual event, an eclectic cultural proposal around various influences: bikes, art, music and surf!
Trevor from Santa Cruz, California USA has made all the effort to send his sunglasses to Germany to support Shades Of Love.
In Dehli, these suitcases will wait at a friends house to get picked up for a further journey to Ladakh/Himalaya.
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!
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.

Thank you for your help!
Every cent will go straight to Nepal!
Up in the Himalayan mountains, at an altitude of 2,500 to 5,000 meters, people are exposed to intense sunlight – and thus harmful UV rays – year round. Here, about 90% of the population suffers from eye damage and serious eye diseases – and it could be so easy to provide protection.
A fact that inspired Juergen Altmann, owner of the AROMA Kaffeebar in Munich to launch? Shades of Love – The Himalayan Eyewear Project. The mission is to collect new or used sunglasses and to spread them among the people, even in the most remote mountain regions. All the sunglasses that we collect are guaranteed to have a UV protection of 300/400 and each pair is professionally cleaned before being distributed.
Shades of Love started in the Ladakh region of northern India where we have been supported from the Tibetan Health Care Center in Choglamsar, near the city of Leh. www.men-tsee-khang.org The center handles the registration and distribution of our eyewear into the remote areas of Ladakh. It is also the sister organization of the Department of Health in Dharamsala, a non-profit organization of the Dalai Lama. www.tibet.net/health/
At Shades of Love, we see ourselves as a Himalayan project and we are pleased to be growing beyond Ladakh. We are currently building a network in Nepal where we greatly benefit from the assistance of the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu. www.tilganga.org
The Eye Hospital is the implementing body of the Nepal Eye Program. It conducts research and provides eye care, treatments and surgeries to the underprivileged. With their support we can take our glasses to the most remote regions of the Himalayas.
If you would like to donate sunglasses, we have several locations where you can drop them off. Please visit our page for the collection points to find a collection point near you or send them directly to the AROMA Kaffeebar in Munich.
Please like us on Facebook and tell your friends and family about this project. The more people who like us, the more people in the Himalayas will enjoy healthy eyesight.
Thank you so much !
See here the collection points.

Recently almost 600 Sunglasses were sent on their way to India. They were collected as part of the aid project «Shades of Love». The manufacturer of eyeglasses Wear-Lite supports the aid project «Shades of Love – The Himalayan Eyewear Project». Late last year the Swiss company launched a big collection campaign of sunglasses with UV protection for the residents of a hard to reach high mountains area in India. They themselves could not afford to protect their precious sight. The result of the action is extremely gratifying: With the help of collaborating opticians, clients, friends and acquaintances Wear-Lite has managed to spend about 600 glasses to humanitarian organizations. The project was launched by the Munich star gastronome Jürgen Altmann.
Wear-Lite is a Swiss manufacturer of high-quality lenses with headquarters in Cham. The medium-sized company manufactures units is using a specially developed production technology, causing a large degree of material, energy and fresh water can be saved.
Special Thanks to Mag. Katharina Springer.

Thank you to all the employees!
