About Hearing Loss

Making a Stink About Hearing Loss is fun, educational, and of course STINKY!

Here's how:

  1. Sign up to be a Stinker and set a fundraising goal. (Register and set up your fundraising page here.)
  2. Ask your friends and family to help you reach your goal (and to get you to stop stinking!).
  3. Put on your Stink Week shirt (provided by The Decibels Foundation).
  4. Wear the same shirt every day for one week, or until your goal is met.
  5. STINK!

Why Stink?

Here are a few of the many reasons from some of our own Decibels families whose children attend the Early Intervention Hearing Loss Program at Minute Man Arc in Concord, MA:

We'd like people to participate in Stink Week to raise funds for Decibels so that the Minute Man play groups and parent support groups get the funding they need to continue and expand. Every child with hearing loss and their family should get the chance to be part of a support network like ours. It gives children and families the tools they need to thrive and and helps them feel connected to others who face similar challenges. ~Sharon O’Brien, mother of Willow

Deacon wants you to get really smelly so he and other kids with hearing loss can continue having great one-on-one speech therapy at Minute Man. Stink it up for Deacon and his friends to support the awesome program for kids with hearing loss. They get to play and learn how to be good listeners. ~Ellen and Dennis Steward, parents of Deacon

So that children and their parents can continue to benefit from the resources that Decibels helps provide.  These dedicated providers and services give each child the support to be on their way to meeting their full potential~Naomi Campbell-Siok, mother of Delia
