eSight for Clay Ellwood

Edit: I want to let everyone know that if you donate straight to the eSight campaign, there are no transaction fee's for us. Gofundme charges a percentage of the donation when they transfer to the savings account I have set up for this fundraiser. This could potentially cost several hundred dollars in donation money. Please click the link below to go to the eSight fund page to donate. This will also ensure that any additional monies donated above the cost of Clay's eSight can then be gifted to another eSight hopeful. Thank you!

Clay Ellwood eSight Fundraiser

These glasses are a true hope for Clay to be able to see like us normal sighted people. We have been to a demo and he actually qualifies as a perfect candidate for them. Sounds great, right? Totally awesome and was unimaginable last month.

Thank you Bernadette for the lead!

Since Clay qualifies, he is able to try these glasses at home for 14 days to see if they are truly going to benefit the quality of his life. I was with him at the demo and i saw the benefits immediately, I am confident and excited for the new world these glasses would offer him! However, this gift will come at a heavy price.

This is why I am sharing this post with everyone. The 14 day in home trial is not free. eSight needs to make the special lenses and glasses that match his current prescription, which is a non-refundable $500.00. No problem. However, they require a $4,500.00 authorization hold to ship them for the in home trial. The only thing we're worried about is developing headaches. But if he wears them and they don't give him migraines we will definitely be trying to keep them. Which means coming up with another $5,000. You heard me, the full price of these glasses is $9,995 of course with options like extended warranty, we're looking at about $13,000 total.

Anyone who knows us knows that this is totally out of our range, so I'm asking friends, family and associates to help make this dream come true for Clay. Anyone who knows Clay knows that there are few out there that deserve this more. He is kind and gentle and thoughtless of himself. He never does a single thing to benefit himself. He is disgusted by the price of these glasses, but I think he deserves them and I'm going to try my best to raise the money for them. I'm asking everyone of you to share this with your contact lists and they in their contact lists to see if anyone is interested in making this a reality.

If you are interested in being a part of creating a positive public interest, please take a few minutes out of your day to watch the video below and possibly peruse eSights websites, share their videos and pages on social media. I'm hoping any attention we can bring to this product will benefit everyone in need of it, not just my squeeze.

And if you want to contribute, please do! Perhaps there is some free tech support for you in the future! 

Thanks for sharing, thanks for caring!
