BIG REQUEST

Over the past weeks and months your support was overwhelming. Literally so… Our storage units are cram full!

Hence we ask you to not send us no more glasses for the moment until we have packed all our current stocks into the containers and shipped them to the destinations.

In a few months time our empty storage will be desperately waiting again to be filled by your sunglasses.

You can imagine that the logistics process is very complex, very time-consuming and unfortunately also very expensive, so we would be more than happy about every financial support.

Thank you so much for your incredible support!

Shades Of Love - Jean Nerva Condolence

My DEAR friends,

I have to tell you today, that our beloved colleague JEAN NERVA has died last night, after suffering on an eye disease / tumor for a long time!

JEAN was very strong and he was fighting his disease always with a special kind of humor.

JEAN has done a wonderful work for SOL and he found in this new social life a strong feeling of help, as he knew, how it felt to have eye damages / problems.

JEAN traveled for the last three years up to LADAKH, to help the people in need.

JEAN convered during his trips, the whole are of ZANSKAR with SOL sunglasses.

JEAN was a playful guy and had always the right words to say.

JEAN and i went to LADAKH 3 years ago – during that time i was so proud of him, how he handled this eye disease.

JEAN was already almost blind at that time and for example, we rented a Royal Enfield and he had to drive behind me,otherwise he couldn’t see the road, just seeing the lights of my motorcycles. It was amazing, how i was trying to stay strong.

JEAN and i were planning to go to the Himalayas this year again – now in September!

I will travel to LADAKH , after his funeral next week – in behalf of JEAN!

Lets pray for him!

Jürgen Altmann / shadesoflove.org


What terrible news!! I have never met Jean but he seems to be an incredible man with a love for others.

Prayers to him and my condolences to you Jürgen!

Niklas Huppmann / south-america@shadesoflove.org


What a great loss
This is such sad news 💔 May God bless his soul and let his journey be memorable

What a beautiful and courageous soul to help others while suffering him self ; giving hope and light to thousands of hearts ♥️

May he Rest In Peace ,
May his place in heaven be the highest

Wish I can join you Jürgen on his funeral 💔 my prayers and heart will be with you during this time and always .
Be strong for him, for us and every Himalayan SOL ✨

My love and condolences

Nowra Binmalhouk / saudiarabia@shadesoflove.org


Dear Jean,

though we only met briefly trough our correspondences and work for Shades Of Love,
I would like to let you know of how much I adored your ruthless effort to help and support other peoples life, your numerous creative and powerful initiatives and your strength to move things for better. Despite fighting with your own health you were living for others, who were not as privileged as we are…you are a real idol and great Bodhisattva.

I know you’re having now a calm and peaceful transition to your next incarnation and as you have already proved of how ambitious, altruistic and visionary you were, for sure the next life you’re looking forward to will offer you a much more powerful position to move things for better and help so many other beings to improve and find their path for a happy or even enlightened existence.

Keep on, you really rocked
