Ellie's DayDonate To This Campaign
Join Prevent Blindness Wisconsin for Ellie’s Day! on Friday, February 5, as we celebrate children’s healthy vision in honor of our former Preschool Vision Screening Ambassador, Ellie McGinty. Ellie McGinty was Prevent Blindness Wisconsin’s Preschool Vision Screening Ambassador during the 2019-2020, schoolyear. She was caught at her Preschool Vision Screening, in spring of 2020 by a group of community volunteers, in Menomonee Falls and diagnosed with amblyopia and hyperopia. Following successful treatment, today, Ellie’s vision has been restored to 20/20, with glasses. Last summer, PBW was unable to host Ellie’s Walk, our family-friendly summer event due to COVID-19. This year, on Ellie’s birthday, we want to make sure she receives all the recognition she deserves for supporting our mission and setting an example for children and families throughout Wisconsin during her year as our Preschool Vision Screening Ambassador.
We are asking all our partners to show your support, for Ellie and PBW by wearing Ellie’s favorite color teal, on Friday, February 5. Post a picture of yourself wearing her favorite color to a social media platform: Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter and tag Prevent Blindness Wisconsin and make sure to include #ElliesDay!
