Mission

I. The next generation is our future. Our vision is to touch the lives of children with less opportunities to see the world, help them develop creativity through artistic expression, encourage self-esteem and acquire work habits and values to become good citizens of the world, and pass on entrepreneurial responsibilities to the next generation. II. Art heals. Art heals a grieving child. Art brings magic in the world of a lost child. If a paint brush can bring so much cure in a troubled world, then let's teach everyone how to use that paint brush, and turn around one life for every paint brush.

Notes from the nonprofit

On June 23, 2021, we are proud to present the 2021 Filipino National Artist nominee for visual arts, Nemesio Miranda Jr., who will visit New York City to create a mural in honor of our modern-day heroes, the healthcare workers who helped us through this global pandemic, marking an unforgettable historic moment in our lives. Certainly, we cannot let the year 2020 pass by without marking these valiant works in human history. In this regard, we look forward to your continuing support and actually join us in our efforts. The mural will depict Philippines’ 500 Years of National Patriotism from the 15th century warrior Lapu-Lapu to Jose Rizal and onto the present-day heroes: the doctors, nurses, EMTs and other healthcare workers who lost their lives during the past year, and in honor of those who continue to fight this dreadful disease. It will also showcase our Faith as we concelebrate 500 years of Christianity through the image of Santo Nino. Watch out for related news.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Most recently, in the advent of the global pandemic, we saw the best of humanities rose, those valiant efforts by frontliners and healthcare heroes, many of whom lost their lives. Today, we cannot let this year pass by without commemorating the modern-day heroes through a mural art led by the Philippines' National Artist nominee Nemi Miranda who is visiting NYC for this project. It is our vision to bring this mural to healthcare facilities on roving exhibit. Earlier in March 2020, we did an outreach at Talipanan Mangyan School, Oriental Mindoro for art supplies, mentoring and distribution of masks. There is very limited resources available to 300 children enrolled in that village. It was also revealed that there is a need to preserve their cultural heritage and language by teaching the new generation of the archaic language and alphabets of the Mangyan tribe. Other initiatives under our watchful "eagle eyes" are underway.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mangyan Art Reach

Benefactors are invited to join us in an annual retreat to visit a Mangyan tribal village and bring joy to the middle school children, get them excited about learning something new, discover their creative talent as they embark into a new world of hope. We are aiming to build a permanent workshop building at our property location in the Philippines, its usufruct donated by our president. This project will kick off in March 2020, with mural painting, art exhibits and individual coaching sessions with the children. An art gift package for each child costs $20 (acrylic set, brushes, canvas and palette) multiplied by the first 60 children in the graduating class, plus their meals for the day as we take them off school for half a day to embark in a new journey. We will also provide the materials for a large mural that will be painted as a group, and leave several art supplies for the Mangyan Village school's ongoing art classes.

Back in 2013, before we organized this 501(c)(3) corporation, we assisted in fundraising efforts by the Philippine Consulate General in New York by offering a silent art auction, where some 33 artists donated works and displayed at the Kalayaan Hall of the Philippine Center. All proceeds were donated to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. We were called again to help in the recent aftermath of an earthquake that shook Mindanao islands in the Philippines in 2019, leaving several indigenous families homeless and without food or water. Today, we continue to reach tribal lands for their educational supplies and livelihood initiatives through our grassroots partner organizations that will distribute goods to hard-to-reach areas.

During the pandemic of 2020, a new normal emerged as several workers lost jobs, communities around the globe halt businesses and went into an extended lockdown. There has never been a financial crisis of this magnitude since the Great Depression. Artists from rural areas and faraway islands suffered untold losses as their main livelihood from face to face gallery exhibitions have been cancelled and rendered impossible. As the "new normal" emerged, artists must learn to embrace a virtual reality, and evolve to meet the challenges of the world wide web. We are here to guide them through this very difficult times.

As we reopen our economy, we seek opportunities to reinvigorate the art scene, starting with painting of murals that will honor the healthcare heroes that saved us through this pandemic. We invite artists from abroad to meet global collectors and introduce their art. We engaged local artists in activities that will stir interests and help them financially. We continue to explore 22nd century art that elevates our artists from their traditional knowledge to digital and non-fungible tokens.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Art educational outreach, online mentoring and virtual art gallery are the main projects we launched this year. Creativity and emotional healing is associated with artistic expression that enhances the well-being of every individual. We are starting with the young sector as the most vulnerable members of the society, both here in the USA and abroad, starting from our roots in the Philippines. We hope to inspire the next generation to become successful adults.

This organization is supporting preservation of cultural heritage, wildlife and endangered species. As part of our artists and volunteers cultural immersion, we travel on location, at the individual expense of each officer, director and volunteers, to interact with the local communities while learning of the problems specific to the region. We offer our 501(c)(3) status to these grassroots organizations to access donors and fundraisers from the US at no cost to them, with the only condition that we require full accountability and liquidation of the funds collected through our resources.

Eagle Eye Charities is open to help in any catastrophic events and calamities that we may encounter, as our leaders in the company had been involved in various fundraisers and art auctions to benefit survivors in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, Mindanao earthquake and now, the global pandemic. Please visit related news reports involving initiatives by Eagle Eye Charities.

Our group of renowned artists from around the world are actively engaged in community volunteer activities ranging from teaching art to fundraising through the sale of art works and mural commemoration of modern-day healthcare heroes. We continue to support each other through virtual exhibitions and series of mentoring that will prepare us to the 21st century digital art known as NFT, and introducing our rural artists to the use of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies, as we head to 2022 and beyond. One thing we never forget is, to look back where we all came from and give back to our poor countrymen, as we recognize the global heroes that helped us through this pandemic.

Further, in cooperation with a community-based program called "Gabay Magaaral" (Guidance to Students) aimed at inspiring school children from the provinces and various locations in the Philippines to work harder towards the achievement of individual success, volunteers and teachers were commissioned to go back to their hometown and meet with the students to deliver inspirational messages. The Philippine Department of Education is duly notified of this initiative so as to advise the principals of the schools of the plan to visit them.

This organization takes this initiative one level up by offering art training sessions to these children. The first project is that with Mangyan tribe, as requested by the teachers themselves. Eagle Eye Charities Inc is now enlisting volunteer artists and benefactors to provide financial assistance and physical presence to join the efforts slated early March 2020 and start an annual art pilgrimage and cultural immersion that will benefit both the artists and the children in this village.

As an extension of this outreach, dubbed as #MangyanArtReach, volunteers and artists are invited to a series of art shows, art workshops and plein air (on-the-spot painting) and mural painting sessions to coincide with the February Art Festival month in the Philippines, with the cooperation of Makati City Cultural Affairs, and the June Philippine Independence celebration in New York City. This will motivate our artist volunteers to help with our "art reach" programs that will benefit the youth in general. Other geographical regions will be included as these artists are mostly residents of New York City. This is only the start of a healthy relations between the artists and the students at large.

As regards the other initiatives, our officers, directors and volunteers are willing to fund any call for action that we may encounter in the future, or those related to our projects, with full accountability. After we launched the Commemorative Mural for healthcare heroes in 2021, we have a new Call for Artists to execute a 3-panel (triptych) mural that tells the story of Filipino Diaspora, OFWs and foreign workers across the globe, the true heroes of our time. Project target: June 2022

Eagle Eye Charities is conceptualized by its director of operations after 30 years of working with various stakeholders, private benefactors and public agencies. We have direct connection to press members for purposes of media exposure, advertising by way of press releases and giving our volunteers a chance to shine through publicity of their talent, their art and their individual expertise which we highlight in every activity. We are hosting media events, interviews and publicity through Eagle Eye Broadcasting working in cooperation with a global news wire Inquirer.net as we explore challenges, difficulties experienced by communities and identify possible projects we can engage in. We may piggyback on existing projects or run our own initiatives to meet a speedy delivery of the results desired.

We have a strict compliance system and measure of accountability that we impose on all recipients and beneficiaries of our projects, based on past experiences of our founder, advisers and directors who are qualified accountants, attorneys and doctors of various disciplines.

Finally, as we expand our membership, we are screening only highly qualified professionals with outstanding record in public service and financially capable of sustaining our projects, specially for their own personal travel and expenses, as we embark into cultural immersion journeys. We work only with individuals and groups obsessed with the same degree of passion and enthusiasm as we have for our projects promoting the arts, culture and the humanities.

As a newly minted organization, our very first project was the launching of the Eagle Eye Broadcasting at the Philippine Center, inviting stakeholders and patrons, while video recording a multi-faceted civic interest groups, thus we recorded and and show online interviews of tips and secrets of a billionaire in building her empire, to preventing online scam and abuses. Free copies of the book ABCs of Investing For Gen XYZ has been distributed and given to partners who can further include us in their educational outreach agenda. The online recordings of interview are found on Eagle Eye Broadcasting livestream along with recordings of topics of interest to the community at large. We uploaded many of our video interview at youtube. See our discussion with cybersecurity expert for preventing scams: https://youtu.be/auR5zAjsdCw

In 2020, the year started with art auction donated by New York based artists, for both Mindanao relief, victims of Philippine earthquake, and for the Mangyan tribal art outreach. These activities became successful, clamor for more services by less privileged communities were received and line up for 2021, response of final beneficiaries were overwhelming and inspiring to the volunteer artists and benefactors. New volunteers have signed up for 2021 outreach.

In March 2020, as the global Covid pandemic gripped New York City, a new challenged emerged. EEC responded with a timely solution: an online gallery for displaced artists. The project is now in full swing, visit the site at EagleCharities.org and join the first ever Fourth of July Virtual Art Exhibit juried competition, to further inspire and energize the poor artist communities from the islands affected by this continuing pandemic. EEC also offered relief to frontliners at NYC through partners in food and coffee distribution to remind them that many people out here are thinking of them and are grateful for their services. Several Covid-themed art works are donated to benefit this initiative.

Today, we woke up to the realization that we cannot let this year 2021 pass by without honoring the healthcare heroes who paid the ultimate price with their lives while saving others' lives. We tapped our own human resources and pool of exemplary talents to work together to achieve a benevolent goal of creating a mural art that depicts 500 years of heroism and Christianity, from the 15th century Lapu-Lapu to the National Hero Jose Rizal onto the modern-day heroes, our frontliners, a project we aim to bring on roving exhibit.

Moving forward, our eagle eyes seek to spread our reach by tapping into more social media involvement, seeking to engage experts in this line as we keep doing what we know best: community engagement

Our list of volunteer artists is also growing with every accomplishment and media exposure we do. We continue to be affiliated with groups and organizations as allies and co-sponsors in worthy endeavors. Like New York, we are open to greater possibilities.

    An earlier fundraising for Tyhoon Haiyan/Yolanda was held in 2013, before we organized this 501(c)(3) organization. Several artists joined and we delivered collected funds to a Church operated 501(c)(3) organization. In the past we sent donations to big establishments such as the Department of Social Welfare. We learned however that it is impossible to request liquidation of the funds and accounting to verify how the funds were distributed.
