So in the quest to find the perfect pair of sunglasses, I have found five sunglasses from Indiegogo and Kickstarter that will not only help block out the sun’s brightness, but will look great as well.

Daybreak Sunglasses: The Classics

Each pair is made from the highest quality materials and are designed for those that live living an outdoor lifestyle and want to enjoy every minute of it with the right pair of sunglasses.

Although the sunglasses sound absolutely amazing, one major feature that caught my eye is that the user is given a chance to help others. By purchasing a pair of Daybreaks, the user helps to restore sight to someone in need across Asia, Africa and Central America. The creators have even partnered up with international development organization, SEVA, to help restore vision and prevent others from going blind unnecessarily.
