The eclipse may be over, but don’t just toss those eclipse glasses you bought. Take a second and donate them to Astronomers Without Borders. The charity is collecting eclipse glasses for schools and kids in underdeveloped countries that will be experiencing eclipses in the near future.
Astronomers Without Borders president Mike Simmons explained, "This is an opportunity for schools to have a first-hand science experience that they might not otherwise have. Many schools in developing countries don't have resources for science education and this is a rare opportunity that inspires students and teachers and shows them that science is something they can do."
The charity is working on setting up collection sites for used glasses, but if you don’t want to wait, you can mail them to Explore Scientific, 1010 S. 48th Street, Springdale, Arkansas 72762.
