Full List of Non-Profits
51% of all of our profits goes to the non-profit that YOU choose!
That is right – 51% of all of our profits goes to the non-profit or charity that you choose. We are the very first website in the world to have done this, no kidding! And what is even cooler than that is that we are 100% Canadian owned and operated. Be proud. Be compassionate and be connected. Buy your contact lenses with us at Contactsforless.ca and help us feed a child, save a forest, protect a habitat or provide aid to a community in need. So many options. Your dollar matters – so make it work.
…oh and thank you to the thousands of contact lens buyers who have switched over from the mega-huge corporate websites. We love you and thank you making the permanent switch to us – and for helping us raise thousands of dollars. Also remember that almost half of our labor budget goes towards working to educate Canadians and people around the world too. We spend a lot of our money on social media and educational posts that promote these groups and their important causes. We do more than just TALK. We also WALK THE TALK.
Thank you again and from all of us here, a big hug to all of our amazing customers! We could not do this without you – literally!

This Month’s Highlighted Cause
Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention
The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) provides information and resources to reduce the suicide rate and minimize the harmful consequences of suicidal behaviour.
Approximately 11 people will end their lives by suicide today in Canada.
In addition, approximately 210 others will gravely injure themselves in suicide attempts today. Suicide is one of the top 10 leading causes of death in Canada, with rates increasing over the past 60 years. In 2012, suicide was ranked as the 9th leading cause of death in Canada. According to Statistics Canada there were 3,926 suicides in the year 2012. Based on data from the Canadian Community Health Survey, 14.7% of Canadians have thought about suicide and 3.5% have attempted suicide in their lifetime.
Suicide is a major public health issue in Canada and in spite of our alarming suicide rate Canada remains one of the few industrialized countries that still does not have a national suicide prevention strategy.
