Prevent Blindness Named October Charity

Girlfriends Films Editor Brett selects Prevent Blindness ( as October charity.
Each month Girlfriends Films turns to one of its employees or performers to select a charity to support.

As a result of Brett’s selection, Prevent Blindness will receive $1,000.
Founded in 1908, Prevent Blindness is the nation’s leading volunteer eye health and safety organization

dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight. Focused on promoting a continuum of vision
care, Prevent Blindness touches the lives of millions of people each year.

“I recently found out one of my friends was diagnosed with an eye condition causing her to slowly
lose her vision,” says Brett. “Furthering her pain is the fact her children have diagnosed with the
same condition.”

Brett explains, “My selection of Prevent Blindness was due to the organization’s health education
and screening policies, as well as its support of state of the art research. Thank you to Girlfriends
Films for supporting a charity committed to helping families like my friend’s.”

In 2013, the Girlfriends Films Charity Program donated over $20,000 to a wide array of philanthropic
organizations, from medical institutes to animal sanctuaries. Charities supported in 2014 include
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Movember Foundation, Stand Up to Cancer, National Alliance
to End Homelessness, and more.
