EYP Announces #DoubleDecember Initiative

Eagles Youth Partnership [EYP] has joined #GivingTuesday and will launch its #DoubleDecember initiative with the support of Eagles Linebacker, Connor Barwin.  Together, we can help to level the playing field for thousands of disadvantaged children in the Greater Philadelphia region.  
"Hearing about Rosie's story and her commitment to the Eagles is awesome," said Barwin. "I'm inspired by the generosity of her family and their desire to make a difference in the city of Philadelphia.   That's what this time of year is all about.  I'm honored to help spread the word about this campaign in support of Eagles Youth Partnership and Rosie's legacy."
The campaign will honor the memory of Rose Poulshock, a life-long Eagles fan who passed away this past August at the age of 76 after a battle with peritoneal cancer; she shared Eagles season tickets with her family for 54 years.
In honor of Rosie, her family has pledged to match every dollar raised for EYP between Giving Tuesday, Dec. 2, and Dec. 31, 2014, up to $54,000 in celebration of those 54 years. Those interested in giving can contribute online by clicking DONATE
This matching initiative is #DoubleDecember.
"Our mom rode the Eagles rollercoaster for 54 seasons, every game from Franklin Field to the Vet to the Linc. And at the end, she discovered that the team's devotion to her was as strong as her devotion to the team. That's what inspired us to pay it forward; it's a way to honor her legacy, her love of the Eagles and her city," said Marc Poulshock. "#DoubleDecember is our way of thanking the team for all they've shared with our family and also supporting area children in need in honor of our mother."
Thanks to the generosity of the Poulshock family, your donation will be doubled during #DoubleDecember, so kids will truly win twice.
To keep up with the #DoubleDecember, follow Eagles Youth Partnership across social media, and see how much money is raised and how many lives your generosity truly changed.
