About EOH

EOH’s main goals have been to help alleviate poverty in both the local and international community, while developing leadership skills and having fun!

The number and frequency of community-helping events depend on our members, what they want to do and what they can do. We also want to emphasize leadership and give members (old or new) the chance to take charge of their leadership development and organize events. And of course, we want people to meet new people, make new friends and have a good time.

Photos of our events can be found on our Facebook page: facebook.com/eyeshope?sk=photos.

Eyes Of Hope reaches $32 000 mark!

As of March 2011, Eyes of Hope has raised $32,000 for charity! Since the summer of 2007, we’ve raised $8650 for Free the Children (school inSierra Leone); $3830 for World Vision (2 sponsored children, 2008 Sichuan earthquake, 2011 Japan earthquake); $17900 for Habitat for Humanity; and $1200 for our sandwich run program! Thank you to all who have helped out in the past four years! 🙂

To highlight a few of EOH’s accomplishments:

Free the Children school
– Through building a school and education, we hope to end the cycle of poverty. We’ve now all raised and donated enough money ($8500) to build our school inSierra Leone! THANK YOU to all who made this possible!

Habitat for Humanity house
– We’re over 20% of the way done with our UofT house! We’ve fundraised over $23,000 of the $80,000 to build this home. This seemed like an overwhelming project when we first started, but it’s definitely doable; let’s finish this!
