If you’ve popped by our office early this week, you might have noticed that there is an explosion of rainbows decorating our space. Rainbows are everywhere because at Merivale Vision Care we have got a whole ton of PRIDE and we are not afraid to show it! We are so excited to kick off our celebration for the whole month of June: Pride Month!
Not only have we decorated our office in honour of Pride Month, we will also be donating $4 from each eye exam during the month of June to a local organization called Capital Rainbow Refuge. Capital Rainbow Refuge provides a safe haven to sexual and Gender minority refugees fleeing dangerous situations. They provide a compassionate and welcoming environment so these refugees can build a better life free of persecution. Capital Rainbow Refuge’s actions demonstrate the value and the humanity of the lives of people who are LGTBQ. Stay tuned for our next post, where we will share more about the amazing work that Capital Rainbow Refuge does for the LGTBQ community right here in town.
When you’re here trying on frames or picking up your new glasses, you can also pose for a selfie with one of our handheld rainbows. If you do so, we will double the donation to Capital Rainbow Refuge! Please use the hashtag #MVCpride or #WVCPride when posting the pictures to your socials so we can see all of your wonderful selfies.
Not only is June at MVC awesome because we get to celebrate Pride Month, but we are also running two wonderful promotions. Don’t hesitate though, our promos are ending on June 30th. The first promo is for our fabulous progressive wearers out there. We are offering $100 off our premium progressives with your purchase of a frame. The second promo is for everyone! We are offering 50% off prescription sunglass lenses when you purchase a frame. Please click here or call us to come in and celebrate Pride Month in style with some gorgeous new eyewear and support Capital Rainbow Refuge simply by caring for your eyes. We can’t wait to see you, and yes, we have frames in every colour of the rainbow too!
