Who:Florida’s Vision Quest (FVQ), a not-for-profit entity that provides children from low-income and uninsured families across the state with free eye exams and eyeglasses
What:FVQ is in the running for Chase Community Giving’s charity Facebook contest. FVQ was the only Central Florida based charity to have been awarded $25,000 for making the Top 100 list in Round 1, and is now eligible to receive up to $500,000 for finishing in the Top 25 of Round 2.
When:Voting for Round 2 begins on May 19th and concludes the night of May 25th.
Where:This is an online contest that takes place on Chase Community Giving’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving). Voting instructions are found below.
Why:Faced with state budget cuts, FVQ desperately needs these funds in order to continue providing children from low-income families with free eye exams and eyeglasses. Everyone, regardless of their economic background, deserves to have one of life’s basic necessities; clear vision. Media coverage of the contest is welcomed, as it will help direct these much needed funds to our local communities.
