DoMore24 was an excellent chance for Eyes Wide Open to share our mission with more people and the response we received exceeded our expectations! Through generous donations, we were able to fundraise $2,184 that will go towards providing homeless youths with items and services that are otherwise be unobtainable.
Here are a few ways that the $2,184 will positively impact the daily lives of homeless youths:
- $24 will provide detergent and laundry tokens for a family for 2 weeks;
- $48 will provide a haircut for two mentees, snacks for mentees during after school activities and provide one mentee with proper footwear;
- $124 will cover the cost of a typical 8th grade graduation for one mentee, or provide transportation for mentees for an educational field trip, or provide one mentee's family with pots, pans, dish soap, towels, toilet paper, etc., when they obtain permanent housing;
- $240 will buy personal supplies and toiletries for 10 mentees, or pay for an exam and pair of glasses for two mentees, or cover the cost of admission and other expenses for 8 mentees to participate in an educational field trip
