Chicago rapper Common continues to use the platform he’s built as an award-winning rapper and actor, to do good for the community.
Common has endorsed a new initiative called “See America,” which is aimed at raising awareness about blindness in America.
“With many Americans not viewing eye health as a priority and believing that they look after their health by eating well and exercising regularly, they are failing to consider their eyes as part of their every day, or even annual regimes, Common said.
The campaign, which is underwritten by Allergan, intends to teach Americans about the value of eye health.
Comment linked up with “See America” to create a new spoken word video, exclusively for the campaign.
“The hope is that this video will raise awareness and inspire Americans to change their routine,” Common added.
