LITHE TOUR PHILLY (ABOUT EYP)! 7 Nov 2014
We're so excited for Lithe Tour Philly! Before you hit the studio, I want to reach out to all of you and talk about why we're supporting the Eagles Youth Partnership and how you can help. The EYP is such a great cause. One of the projects that really attracted us to them is the Eagles Eye Mobile.
Since 1996, the Eagles Eye Mobile has worked to make comprehensive vision care accessible to under- and uninsured children in the Greater Philadelphia area. In Philadelphia alone, an estimated 60% of public school children (approximately 14,000 children) that fail their school nurse's state-mandated vision screening do not receive the vision care they need. The Eagles Eye Mobile offers these children eye exams, prescription eyeglasses, and follow-up care from an ophthalmologist, all at no cost to children or their families.
Suggested donation: $20. Every $10 you donate provides new books for four children through the Eagles Book Mobile program and every $30 you donate provides a new pair of prescription glasses for a child who needs them through the Eagles Eye Mobile program!
