17 Jan Creating Awareness Changes Lives
Chances are you’ve already liked a few posts on Facebook today, or maybe you even shared a funny cat video on a friend’s page?
You probably wanted to show those individuals that you care about their lives, or simply wanted to give them a good laugh! But what if “liking” and “sharing” a post could actually help change a person’s life?
According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, only 16% of adults’ ages 20 to 69 who benefit from wearing hearing aids actually use them. This low percentage is due to the high cost of hearing aids, and is ultimately the reason why the Hearing Aid Project exists.
We post and share stories about the people we’ve helped in hopes that we can reach more individuals in need. With your help, we can do even more! Below are a few simple ways to make a HUGE difference.
- Liking and following HAP’s Facebook and Twitter
- Sharing our stories!
- Establishing a collection center in your community.
- Encouraging audiologists to get involved.
By sharing our message, you will not only support those with hearing loss, but you will help us reach new potential donors and sponsors.
Making a donation to the Hearing Aid Project is a generous gift, which will help individuals in need receive hearing aids. But using your social media habits and powerful words for the greater good is also important. Start spreading the word about the Hearing Aid Project today!
