Bolle Safety Teams with Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Prevent Blindness brings back free art program and Johnny Depp’s influence continues to drive AM Eyewear interest.




Bolle Safety Teams with Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

What started in 1985 as a week-long awareness campaign in the U.S. steadily has ingrained itself into our national psyche.

In a few short weeks, we’ll start seeing pink in most every corner of our lives, from pink ribbons pinned on collars to NFL players donning pink cleats (among various pink athletic accessories) to corporate logos embracing temporary pick tones. Truly, the color pink has found its place amongst the traditional autumnal hues of oranges, reds and yellows.

However, as successful as the now international health campaign has become in spreading awareness and educating women on proactive approaches, breast cancer remains the most common cancer for women in the U.S. and worldwide. The cause remains as important as ever.

This year, Bolle Safety is adding a month to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Starting Sept. 1 and going through Nov. 1, the safety glasses and goggles manufacturer will donate 50 cents of the wholesale sales price of each specifically marked sale of its Rush+ Small Pink frames to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

AM Eyewear Still Reaping Rewards from Johnny Depp’s Choice of Frames

It has been months since the aggressively public Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial wrapped up.

And, yet, AM Eyewear continues to report increased interest in its lineup of limited edition frames.


Depp wore his AM Eyewear frames, an eight-year-old pair of The Ava in Yellow Mellow, on more than a half-dozen occasions during the final weeks of the trial. The frames were a revelation and became an instant must-have item for many. The Australian eyewear company says a customer in the U.S. even shelled out $2,000 AUD for the frames on Ebay. (That’s about $1,400 USD.)

The wave of publicity has yet to recede this summer thanks in part to a Johnny Depp-inspired TikTok filter. From an article on the website The Things: “The filter adds facial hair similar to Johnny’s and sunglasses like AM Eyewear’s Ava in Mellow Yellow.”

AM Eyewear plans to remain in the public with the release its new SS223 collection Limited Edition frames in the coming weeks. The new frames reportedly will come with a gold-plated authenticity card.
