Stink Week 2016: February 29th - March 6th

In 2016, we are going to LEAP into Stink Week on Monday, February 29th! We are going to use the extra leap day to start Raising Awareness & Funds for Children with Hearing Loss & their Families!

Since 2011, children, students, teachers, parents, and other supporters have taken one week out of their year to Make a Stink about Hearing Loss! Our Stinkers have raised over $82,000 to support children with hearing loss and their families!

Why Make a Stink?
Stink Week is a lot fun, but ultimately Stink Week was created to ensure stories like these keep happening:

"Xavier was diagnosed later than a lot of kids but because of the programs The Decibels Foundation supports, he is beginning to understand, sign, and speak like a typical 2 year old." ~Jessica Zakrajsek

"At just 18 months old, our amazingly talkative son Wils, when asked about Stink Week 2016, said “oh man,” "pee-yoo,” and “thank you!”  He’s a funny, social, little chatterbox thanks to the team at The Minute Man Arc Early Intervention Hearing Loss Program. Please help us make a stink about hearing loss to raise awareness and funds so that all the children of Massachusetts with hearing loss can get the support they and their families need." ~Tori & Mike Banu
