Supporter Spotlight – uShip

In June, uShip renewed their support of half Helen by sponsoring our 8th Birthday Party and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for optical Prime. 

half Helen was founded with the goal to eliminate preventable vision loss by increasing access to vision care. Like half Helen, uShip was created with the goal of making a difference, which for uShip extends well beyond their core business – shipping an array of traditionally difficult to transport items to anywhere in the world. uShip’s charitable arm, uShip Gives, empowers employees to  support  passion projects in the Austin community and beyond.

We are grateful for uShip’s continued support. Thanks in part to uShip, 55 guests including uShip employees Heather Salomon and Caleb Ruzicka were honored to attend the outdoor ribbon cutting for optical Prime and take a tour of the operation. Most importantly, uShip’s continued  sponsorship helped to launch eye care services on optical Prime.

Since 2004, uShip has made it quick, easy, and affordable to ship large and bulky items. From cars to cranes and furniture to freight, its straightforward and transparent platform helps people, businesses, and e-commerce sellers ship with incredible speed and efficiency.

We would like to thank uShip for joining us in the launch of optical Prime and helping to close the access to vision care gap for children and adults across Central Texas.
