LIVERMORE, Calif. – Eyewear maker Wiley X will donate $3 from the purchase of each new pair of WX Chelsea sunglasses sold this year to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Every pair of WX Chelsea sunglasses also ships with a BCRF Pink Ribbon static lens sticker, helping to raise awareness of the disease.

"This year, we decided to tie our annual fundraising efforts to sales of our new WX Chelsea. We’re confident this new style will quickly become a top seller among women everywhere - and with each sale, our company will be helping to raise both awareness and much-needed funds for the cause," 
said Wiley X co-owner Myles Freeman, Jr.

The WX Chelsea comes in two eye-catching versions.  model SSCHE01 matches a unique Liquid Plum frame with smoke grey lenses, while model SSCHE04 combines a fashionable Iced Tea frame with glare-cutting polarized bronze lenses.
