NEW YORK, April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In the midst of the devastating floods that have affected Hawaiian communities, GlassesUSA.com, the leading online eyewear retailer, and Hilary Duff have joined forces to raise funds in support of those affected by the floods. Starting Monday, April 30th and running through Sunday, May 6, five dollars of every pair of glasses of the Muse x Hilary Duff collection sold exclusively through GlassesUSA.com will be donated to the Hanalei-Haena Flooding Fund.
"I've been lucky enough to visit Hanalei Bay a few times and this place is truly magical. It has a strong sense of community and I'm devastated to think that it's currently been completely flooded. Many homes and businesses are under water. I'm honored to be partners with GlassesUSA who continue to jump on board when a cause close to my heart needs help. Join us in the effort to raise money for families who really need it right now!" said Hilary Duff.
In mid-April, torrential rains affected many communities throughout the islands, leaving a trail of destruction with roads, houses and bridges swept way, and thousands stranded and without essentials. The aftermath of the unprecedented event requires for communities to come together in support of one another, to help provide immediate relief to those affected and stabilize the impacted areas.
"At GlassesUSA.com, extending a helping hand to our customers' communities in a time of need is a priority aligned with our company's values and beliefs," said Daniel Rothman, CEO of GlassesUSA.com. "We are proud that through our partnership with Hillary Duff, we are able to raise awareness and facilitate the fundraising efforts of the Hanalei-Haena Flooding Fund."
The Muse x Hilary Duff eyewear collection was created to inspire self-empowerment, which sometimes translates into extending a helping hand to empower those in need. The community is urged to support fundraising efforts by visiting GlassessUSA.com or directly through the Hanalei-Haena Flooding Fund page.
