Bruce Lerner, inventor of Flip’N Shades, in recognition of March being Hemophilia Awareness Month, is donating an increased percentage of his profits to Bleeding Disorders Alliance Illinois (BDAI) during the month of March. BDAI is a nonprofit that supports families affected by inherited bleeding disorders such as Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease. Flip’N Shades will also launch in late spring Eclipse Shades for the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, of which an increased percentage of the profits will also be donated to BDAI.
“My main goal with Flip’N Shades is to help fund continued research and assist BDAI in its mission to support those families coping with bleeding disorders,” said Lerner, whose son suffers from hemophilia.
BDAI provides its members with the unbiased medical information and resources that allow them to live a healthy and active lifestyle. Lerner has been donating a percentage of his profits from Flip’N Shades to BDAI for the past ten years. In fact, the reason he created Flip’N Shades was in appreciation of the support BDAI has given to his family and the pivotal role it played in helping his son manage his hemophilia and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, allowing him to continue on to college and get established in an exciting career.
Lerner developed his concept for Flip’N Shades during his tenure as a member of the Board of Directors of BDAI. He sought to create Flip’N Shades as a fundraising tool for BDAI and other nonprofits that needed a unique way to get their message out to the public and raise the funds needed to support their programs. As part of that effort, Lerner also donates to the award-winning Comprehensive Breast Health Center at Little Company of Mary Hospital, using proceeds from a novel adaptation of Flip’N Shades with pink lenses and the ribbon logo.
