You’re a Philadelphian. An active user of the word ‘jawn,’ a sometimes wiz wit, often wit-out, enthusiast, and a lover of all things Rocky. You often stand taller at the sight of Ben Franklin and you’ve been known to flip your ‘f’ for a ‘ph’ just to add some Philly phlair. You may or may not run, but we know that your pride ‘runs’ deep for this city and those it inhabits.
But at any given moment, you may pass someone on the streets in need or may not even see that those that are in the greatest need are often not even visible.
As we set our clocks to spring forward and awaken from the depths and darkness of the winter, we ask for you to do one thing…
Stop the snooze.
We ask that you run the sleep out of your eyes and take note of those around you. Most importantly, we ask for you to become active in the fight for visibility of those you may not see, those that are waiting for their second chance….your fellow Philadelphians – your future coworkers, neighbors, friends, motivators, listeners, high-fivers, and more.
How can you help? Easy.
