Stink Week 2017

Raise Awareness

Each day we will be posting facts and educational information about hearing loss.

Everyone is encouraged to log-on to each day to learn something new and share what you've learned with others. Here are a few comments we received last year about our daily hearing loss awareness pages:

"What I learned was awesome! I can't wait to learn more :]:}"

"I was able to share more facts about hearing loss with classmates. My bracelet was loved by my friends, and people asked me about it, so I could explain about my brother and deafness."

"Super fun!"

"Very interesting and engaging"

"We love learning about sign language!"

Raise Funds
