ContactsForLess.ca donates 51% of our net profits to the non-profit organization that YOU choose when you buy your contacts lenses with us AND you save 70% or more on every type and brand of contact lens.
We Know You Care, but ACTION is what is needed to SAVE the PLANET. We are couting on you, and the compassion and caring of Canadians to help us get the word out, to grow and to give away thousands of dollars to the most important non-profit organizations in Canada and the world.
We ask of YOU to use any means necessary, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. to help spread the word. Together we can achieve anything.
March 4 is World Wildlife Day and so this month we have picked the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) as our group of the month. Like always, you can save 70% or more on your contact lenses and like always, you can pick any group to whom we give 51% of our profits.
We Donate 51% of our Profits
However in March, the default group is the World Wildlife Fund – and they do some amazing work. In fact this group is among the most powerful and visible in the fight to preserve species and habitat all over the planet. The World Wildlife Fund is one of our very favorite groups and was one of the top 10 groups that we donated to in 2016.
And remember we give away 51% of our profits to anyone you choose – and this month we urge you to choose the WWF.
Here is the monthly video where Erika is talking all about this and other issues too.
New Westminster, BC – February 24, 2017 – Contactsforless.ca announced today that its Canadian-owned contact lens website grew 315% in Total Sales Revenue for 2016 and an astounding 1,641% between January 2014 to December 2016.
Contactsforless.ca is a Canadian online contact lens website that is the first in the world to donate 51% of its net profits to the non-profit organization that the contact lens buyer chooses. The website currently has 55 of the top non-profits and charities in its donation list, ranging from such well-known groups as Greenpeace, the Sea Shepherd Society, Doctors Without Borders, The World Wildlife Fund, Save the Children and many more.
Contactsforless.ca also spends a large majority of its outreach budget just sharing articles and information related to global issues like child hunger, the effects of war, environmental destruction and human suffering. Owner, Founder and CEO Paul W. Slusher commented “When I came up with the idea for Contactsforless.ca back in 2010, I knew we were the first to do this – to combine great products, great prices, great service with a total commitment to helping our planet and helping people. There is no doubt in my mind that we will take over at least 20-30% of the Canadian contact lens market in the next few years.”
Slusher went on to add “We are seeing our website grow into a real force in the Canadian contact lens market mainly through our customers spreading the word about us.” He explained that their marketing budget has been “on a shoestring from day one and yet customers are coming to us organically every single day.”
When asked how Contactforless.ca is able to donate 51% of its net profits and still be a profitable company, Slusher maintains that it comes down to a having a small, dedicated team “who are more focused on making sure this company grows over making personal profits.”
Contactsforless.ca admits that although its levels of donations are still small, having donated $3,840 in 2016, Slusher comments that “the majority of those donations happened in the last quarter of 2016, when our sales volume really started to expand.” The company estimates that donations in 2017 may exceed $20,000 or more and perhaps even in the hundreds of thousands of dollars per year within five years or less. As Slusher comments “When a customer is faced with two options, one company that makes millions of dollars of profit and another which gives 51% of its profits to helping save our planet, which one are they going to pick?”
The Top 10 Non-Profits at Contactsforless.ca in 2016 were:
Save the Children
Global Fund for Women
Doctors Without Borders
One Laptop Per Child
Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Canada
Women for Women International
World Wildlife Fund Canada
