Here’s How You Can Upgrade Your Eyewear While Supporting A Cause


If there’s only one accessory that can easily elevate your look, it’s going to be your glasses.

Whether it’s specs or shades, once you upgrade your eyewear with the latest trend, you are bound to turn heads. Cat-eye sunglasses can always give you a sophisticated lady boss look, while a pair of rectangular optical glasses can make you look fashionably smart. After all, our goal is to showcase ourselves en vogue. And that’s what Owndays also wants for everyone.

Known for being one of the largest optical chains in Japan, Owndays offers more than 1,500 styles suited for any lifestyle. And the moment they arrived in the Philippines, they only continued what they already started: offering tons of glasses and quick 20-minute processing time to get your specs.

But more than this, Owndays not only wants you to present the best version of yourself anymore. The Japanese eyewear retailer also encourages you to flaunt its newly designed eyewear case collection called, “Cases For Change.” Why? To help the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), World Wide Fund For Nature Philippines, and World Vision Philippines raise awareness in their causes and give a brighter future for the next generation.

According to Owndays Philippines Managing Director Vohne Yao, “At Cases For Change, our goal is to give back to society by allowing our customers to support their [chosen] causes. We have chosen these non-profit organizations to help them promote animal welfare, environmental protection, and child empowerment.”

Cases For Change is quite a simple concept. When you buy a collaboration case, 100 percent of sales will go to your chosen non-profit organization based on the design. By doing so, they will be able to do what they do best.

In World Vision PH, they will be focusing on the overall well-being of Filipino children, especially on digital education. As for the World Wide Fund For Nature Philippines, their efforts will be concentrated on conservation initiatives. As for the PAWS, their “advocacy is to prevent [pet animals] from being rescued in the first place by making people aware of how they should be responsible pet owners,” Executive Director Anna Hashim-Cabrera said.

So not only will Cases For Change help raise much-needed funds for the non-profit organizations, but it will allow anyone to easily help raise awareness on these causes by simply carrying the collaboration cases with them.

Each of the collaboration cases will be sold at Php 250 with every purchase of prescription glasses and at Php 500 if no purchase made. Collaboration cases are now available at all Owndays stores nationwide.
