The 2019 Financial Growth Report
by Director & CEO Paul W. Slusher
Once again, 2019 proved that Contactsforless.ca is the #1 fastest growing online contact lens website in Canada. What do we mean by being “#1 fastest growing”? Well, to be very clear about it, fastest growing in total revenue and fastest growing in total orders. Of course no other website donates 51% of all net profits like we do. So, we are #1 in being the fastest growing in donations raised to save the planet too!
As we keep saying, there are companies that act like they care about the planet and then there is Contactsforless.ca – a company that actually does it. Most sites just make profits off of you and that is it. Maybe there is a site here and there that “donates” but do they donate 51% of net profits? Heck no! That would be insane! Yes it would be, because their reason for living is profits. At Contactsforless.ca our reason for living is to help our planet. That is why we are the fastest growing contact lens site in Canada.

Numbers (Still) Matter…
It is one thing to say you are #1 like some of the other sites. It is another thing to prove it. Well, numbers don’t like like some folks do. Here is the math that backs up our claim. Let’s see the “other guys” do that. Don’t hold your breath, because they won’t. Trust us on that.
So here our record-breaking numbers. We are very proud of what we have accomplished. However, we won’t stop here. We plan to donate MILLIONS OF DOLLARS someday to help our planet, feed children, help victims of war, stop cancer, alzheimer’s and so much more!
TOTAL ORDERS UP 3,825% 2015 – 2019
Yes, you read that correctly. 3,825%
2015 – 394 Orders
2016 – 5,137 Orders (UP 1,203%)
2017 – 7,063 Orders (UP 38%)
2018 – 9,471 Orders (UP 34%)
2019 – 15,471 Orders (UP 63%)
TOTAL SALES REVENUE UP 2,272% 2015 – 2019
Again, we never cease to amaze. We are growing so fast it is incredible. Here are how the numbers break down in this category:
2015 – $92,101 Total Sales Revenue
2016 – $628,083 Total Sales Revenue (UP 582%)
2017 – $874,479 Total Sales Revenue (UP 39%)
2018 – $1,258,503 Total Sales Revenue (UP 43%)
2019 – $2,184,834 Total Sales Revenue (UP 73%)
ONLY SITE TO DONATE 51%
It needs to be said that we are also the ONLY online contact lens website in Canada to donate 51% of its net profits to the non-profit that YOU the customer choose. No one does it. No one dare give away profits like that – except Contactsforless.ca.
So, since our mission is to give 51% of our net profits, we continue to give, give, give. Despite the fact that profit margins on contact lenses are so very small, we still manage to give away thousands. Check out these figures:
2015 – $623 Donated
2016 – $3,141 Donated
2017 – $3,644 Donated
2018 – $6,717 Donated
2019 – $6,111 Donated
Total Donated 2015 – 2018 – $20,236*
* It is important to note that we have donated more than $25,000 if you include the funds we donated prior to 2015 but are not officially part of our report totals.
