The School District of Philadelphia has been shown some serious love from the Eagles and its fans this postseason.
Back in November, offensive tackle Lane Johnson founded LJ65 Clothing Line, which donates all its proceeds to The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia. After the NFL put out an official version of his and Chris Long’s “Underdogs” t-shirt, sales from which benefit the education nonprofit, he challenged the league to donate theirs to Philly schools too — and they agreed.
Then on Wednesday , Federal Donuts announced it would sell special green donuts to rep the Eagles and benefit the same organization. The first batch of green donuts sold out in one hour.
Philly schools are returning the love. On Friday morning, the School District of Philadelphia announced that city schools would officially use Twitter to cheer the Birds, via the hashtag #EaglesGreenSDP.
Philly schools got pretty hype over the campaign — there were pep rallies, music videos and band performances. Here’s how local kids celebrated the Birds.

Alexander K. McClure School
At this Hunting Park school, the building engineer was probably just as excited as the kids. Can he even see through that underdog mask?
