Social responsibility is at the heart of the 2019 National Eye Care Awareness Month


#EyeCAN - Join myREDvolution is the centerpiece of this year’s National Eye Care Awareness Month (NECAM), which encourages Filipinos to advocate for meaningful change in the society.

Spearheaded by Eye Mo, the leading eye drop brand in the country, #EyeCAN - JOIN myREDvolution inspires Filipino millennials to embrace their social responsibilities through a series of activities anchored on four pillars: education and health, environment, community and the arts, and charity. These activities complement Eye Mo’s advocacy for proper eye education and eye care, which are crucial to a person’s overall health.

#EyeCan or “I can Change A Nation” is part of its flagship campaign “Eyes Mo, Care Mo,” which is now running on its third year. “We launched the first eye care awareness campaign in 2017 to educate Filipinos on the importance of healthy eyesight. Every year, we want to build on what we have achieved, so that we can reach out to more people and educate them on proper eye care. This year, we are spreading the advocacy further by taking it to communities, through a series of CSR initiatives that can help push the message forward and inspire millennials to promote social awareness and positive change.” said Earl Jayona, Head of Marketing for Eye Mo Philippines.

The #EyeCan - Join myREDvolution campaign builds on the successes of the 2018 campaign called #REDVolution, which focused on the millennials and which encourages them to pay it forward through their active participation in community activities. The campaign kicks off this month and will run until the end of 2019.

To spread greater awareness on the importance of eye health, a series of eye care lectures will be held, and free hygiene kits will be distributed. There will also be free eye checks. The nationwide campaign highlights Eye Mo’s strong commitment to spreading eye care awareness by combating the five signs of eye irritation, namely, sore, itchy, red, watery, and dry eyes. It also continues to advocate for proper eye education and eye care.

Eye Mo launches NECAM through school and university invasion

Recognizing the importance of proper eye care among the youth, NECAM will visit schools and universities via concert tours, latching onto the power of music to spread the importance of eye health, bringing it to thousands of students across the Philippines. As part of the NECAM campaign, a short documentary film will be launched featuring five outstanding millennials who have contributed positively to society. The short documentary film aims to open people’s eyes on what they can do so that they can contribute to changing the nation for the better.

CSR Activities: #EyeCan movement go into high gear

The #EyeCan - Join myREDvolution campaign also aims to address eyesores in the community by working with youth groups in cleaning these up. On August 31, executives and volunteers from Eye Mo with the support of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Barangay Health Workers from Barangay Baseco, and Pasig River Rehabilitation (PRRC) have done tree planting and clean-up drive at the Baseco Beach, Manila. It also partnered with TV5’s Alagang Kapatid Foundation and held a feeding program to kids at the Baseco Compound. Various NGOs such as Nestle Philippines and i2i New York also joined hands with Eye Mo Philippines through giving out protective sunglasses for adults and packed milk to kids. A talk on proper eye care, free eye-check ups, consultations, and Eye Mo products were also given to adults in the community.

A mural-painting activity in San Juan City was also done in partnership with the local government to forward their cause for community and the art with articipants from the community.

Eye Mo has also tied up with numerous communities in Metro Manila to effect visible change in the environment. As part of this, volunteers from school organizations and SK groups will also be tapped to do wall mural paintings to beautify the communities.

The #EyeCan - Join myREDvolution movement is a call out for millennials and Filipinos alike to learn and embrace their social responsibilities and bring visible change to their communities.
