great design for people in need

As if One Laptop per Child wasn't enough goodness to spread in the world, the fine people from Fuse Project have created more awesomness: cool glasses for kids who can't afford them.

They expect to give away 300,000 glasses a year to kids in need. They've kicked the program off in Mexico, where less fortunate kids are accustomed to ugly black framed spectacles (seen on hipsters here). They've come up with five designs that have become fashionably desirable by kids across the land.

A really great example of how the less fortunate deserve better than left overs and trash, and how great design can reach everyone.
