Combining the customer service of Zappos and the altruism of Toms with a dash of French chic thrown in for good measure, Startup Weekend Toulouse company Jimmy Fairly is out to change the way we think about giving.  When customers purchase a pair of regular glasses or sunglasses (all of which cost less than €100), Jimmy Fairly donates a pair to someone in need.

Although they’ve been hard at work for months, the last few weeks have been extremely busy for the Jimmy Fairly team:  In addition to raising €200K in 3 weeks, Jimmy Fairly also publically launched and opened their flagship Parisian boutique.

Hailed by TechCrunch Europe as the “fastest-funded French Startup”,  Jimmy Fairly received funding from well-known European investors such as Oleg Tscheltzoff, Fabrice Grinda, José Marin, and Céline Lazorthes.

In addition to supporting craftsmen in France, Jimmy Fairly is committed to superior customer service with free shipping, free corrective lenses, and free trials for multiple frames.  Visit jimmyfairly.com today to learn more about the startup, snag some cool specs, and give someone in need the gift of vision.
