Carson Wentz announced the launch of the Carson Wentz AO1 (Audience of One) Foundation. The nonprofit’s mission is to “demonstrate the love of God by providing opportunities and support for the less fortunate and those in need.”

Wentz’s foundation focuses on three main objectives that reflect some of his deepest passions in life – his faith, his enthusiasm for the outdoors and his avid love for dogs.

The Eagles quarterback will support youth in the Philadelphia area by providing service dogs to assist in their development and quality of life; he will care for and provide food, shelter and educational opportunities for underprivileged youth living abroad; and he will provide hunting and outdoor opportunities for individuals with physical challenges, the underserved and military veterans living in the Midwest.

The Carson Wentz AO1 Foundation kicks off Wednesday with a private event at the Oxbow Country Club in Oxbow, N.D.

“I really just think the Lord’s going to use this to make a difference in people’s lives all around the world,” Wentz said in a video he posted on Twitter.

    Says the guy who probably eats his meat from fast food and grocery store chains from animals who were greatly mistreated and malnourished. #idiot.

    He’s a much much less talented and charismatic version of Tebow. The Lord actually interfered in the bears broncos 2011 game for Tebow just ask Marion barber.

    So, he’s kicking off his foundation aimed at:

    “youth in the Philadelphia area by providing service dogs to assist in their development and quality of life; he will care for and provide food, shelter and educational opportunities for underprivileged youth living abroad”

    in North Dakota.

    Outside of ND and philly nobody really cares about Wentz. He’s not a threat to make converts to biblical Christianity like the charismatic, compelling and talented Tebow so the NFL will probably be ok with it.

    How do you criticize a guy on a story like this? Thank you, Carson, for living your faith and doing something to improve the lives of others.

    He seems like a class act who hasn’t lost his values or forgotten where he came from, bravo! NFL needs more players like him.

    I expect the new org to share a building with The Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Want to Do Other Stuff Good Too.

    Dude is all class. Anyone who thinks otherwise is uneducated or misinformed.

    The service dogs may stare you down and look at only one side of the field.

  13. vusnu says: Jul 11, 2017 5:30 PM

    Great kid. Not sure why people see the need to knock him for wanting to help others out.

  14. crappygovernment says: Jul 11, 2017 5:31 PM

    Wentz should go back to college and play against major college d1 teams. He skipped that stuff the first time around. Tebow and deshaun Watson dominated real d1 competition instead of hiding from it like Wentz.

    So, while the Eagles player is doing what he can to make this world a better place, the Cowboys player is pointing AR15’s at women for their parking spot.

    All is right in the world…

    Another Turdbow…

    Just play football, dude.

    If Wentz or any NFL player was a real Christian, they’d be speaking up for their blackballed Christian brother Tim Tebow. Accept no substitutes!

  18. pkrlvr says: Jul 11, 2017 6:24 PM

    So crappygovernment you made three posts in this thread all talking about tebow. Seems you may have a man crush. Fyi Tebow’s god doesn’t approve of such things so you may want to chill.

    The Cowboys quarterback is meeting with the family of a slain police officer.

    He’s definitely not a stupid trump supporter

  22. officialgame says: Jul 11, 2017 10:08 PM

    A lot of pathetic comments from a bunch of pathetic losers who have never accomplished anything in their lives. Really dolts take a look a in the mirror and ask yourself what have I done to make this world a better place? When your reflection stops laughing let me know.

    The human fund, money for people…

  24. buzzlightner says: Jul 12, 2017 11:12 AM

    So many people bashing the guy for doing good in the world. Even if he turns out not to be a great player he is definately a great person. but dont call him tebow until he plays with a real reciever.. twbow had 2 of them.

    Its funny that a cowboys fan isnt bashing the guy and hoping for a long rivalry between him and prescott.. that would be great.

    But serioisly, what have you done recently

  25. mrpeepee says: Jul 12, 2017 11:46 AM

    Glad to see this, but hopefully he worked on his mechanics this offseason too…
