In honor of National Voter Registration Day, we're making a plan to vote + hope to inspire others to represent this election year. Tell us who you represent for in the comments below and see how you can be prepared to vote.
PREPARED TO VOTE
We've partnered with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to help ensure our squad (and our squad's squad) can make theirvote count.
First + foremost—THANK YOU. Over the past few weeks, we have shifted a portion of our manufacturing efforts to producing certified medical-grade protective goggles + safety glasses for front line healthcare workers. PPE is in short supply globally, and eyewear is what we know best—so this felt like the clear way for us to contribute to the global cause during these unprecedented times.
Community is always Quay for us—so it was important to include + empower you. To distribute as many pairs as possible, we offered a BUY ONE, GET ONE, GIVE ONE program on all of our global Quay sites from April 10th-13th, with each purchase representing an additional eyewear donation. As a result, we are proud to announce a donation of over 30,000 pairs of eyewear to be distributed to front line healthcare workers across the globe, from the US to Australia to Europe. We’re overwhelmed and filled with gratitude by your emphatic support of our effort, and are so grateful for the opportunity to distribute thousands of pairs of goggles + glasses to institutions like:
We believe that knowledge is power, and we’re putting our money where our mouth is by giving ten members of the Quay Squad the opportunity to win a $10k scholarship to support their educational goals and fuel their dreams. Self-expression is at the core of everything we do, so we want to hear how you express yourself. Self-expression doesn’t always mean being the loudest or most flamboyant, it means embracing every side of yourself—so show us what you’ve got.
