WICHITA, Kan. - A Wichita entrepreneur who grew up poor has created a fund that he hopes will help needy people be able to see better even long after he is gone.
Hank Rasmussen turns 95 in February. His wife, Naomi, died in 2004, and he already has set aside money for his surviving 39 nieces and nephews.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/We7H0x ) reports Rasmussen has been putting $5,000 a month into a fund he helped set up through the Lions Club to provide eyeglasses to those who can't afford to buy them.
About 2,800 pairs of glasses have been purchased through the fund.
The businessman says he was 90 when he decided to come up with a long-term plan to use his money to help others.
