Today I joined Adrian Paul and Ethan Dettenmaier in welcoming our Hero of the Week, Yash Gupta, who broke his glasses in ninth grade and couldn’t believe how little he learned in the several days it took to get them replaced. So he founded Sight Learning and has collected and donated more than $425,000 worth of eyeglasses to children around the world who can’t afford their own.
Now a high school senior, Yash has traveled the world setting up eye clinics and hopes to have collected $750,000 worth of glasses by 2014. He was personally congratulated by Presidents George H. W. Bush and Barack Obama at a White House ceremony in July, and we’re grateful he took the time to come on the show today and tell us how it all came together.
