Stink Week is a week-long campaign to RAISE AWARENESS and RAISE FUNDS to support children with hearing loss and their families! Everyone who signs up for Stink Week is randomly assigned to one of our four teams - Hyena Legion, Sloth Squad, Skunk Force, and Musk Ox Movement - and teams work to raise awareness and funds for children with hearing loss.
Each day of Stink Week we will be posting facts and challenges about hearing loss. Everyone is encourage to log-on to www.stinkweek.org every day of Stink Week to learn something new and share what you've learned with others.
Since Stink Week started in 2011, Stinkers have raised over $100,000 to support programs for children with hearing loss & their families! These are some of the ways these funds have been used:
Minute Man Arc Early Intervention Hearing Loss Program (families shown in photo above)
