Spotlight on Those who Help

Friday, October 5, 2018 12:42:03 PM Australia/Melbourne

Spotlight on Those who HelpIt is always so much more fun to write about positive audiology research and updates, than challenging roadblocks. Here at Hearlink, we believe in both. We know that it sometimes takes the harder parts of the journey to ensure a successful and positive movement forward in ensuring that our current and future generations can hear properly. That’s why we leverage this blog on the Hearlink site, to spread our knowledge and our passion about all things audiology-related. It’s been supremely successful, and we always look to the know-how of our audience to ask us questions and report back on what you want to learn most. Questions? Comments? Let us know. The Hearlink team always wants to hear from you.

 

But today, we’re coming to the table with a subject that we’re excited about and one that we want to share with our valued base of customers as often as we please. It may seem like it’s all about technology in other capacities of this day and age, but we know it bears reminding that the root of this work comes with the people. They may be right here in our community, or they may be well across the globe. It doesn’t matter, the mission is the same. We’re shedding a well-deserved spotlight on the organizations and the individuals who give their time back to the community, in order to move the needle on hearing loss.

 

Today, we’re looking at an organization called Child’s Voice. Child’s Voice helps those with hearing loss find their voice and perform and present to large groups of people. It helps enable confidence and teaches skills that many with proper hearing levels could do with as well. Routinely, throughout the year, Child’s Voice holds galas that showcase the vocal talents of those previously challenged by degrees of hearing loss. As you may imagine, there’s not a dry eye in the house.

 

“The Gala is near and dear to my heart. Watching the graduate speakers stand in front of 300+ attendees and confidently share their success stories is something I look forward to every year," shared Melissa Lundt, Special Services Coordinator at Child’s Voice.

We hope that this series of articles not only serves as a platform to share well-deserved recognition with the volunteers and leaders of the audiology community, but a routine call-to-action that you should get out in your community as well. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been impacted by hearing loss, if someone close to you has, or if you have no knowledge around it, only interest and compassion – there are dozens of events and organizations who would love to have your help. It doesn’t need to be a dollar amount, and it doesn’t need to be a time limit, every little bit counts in an effort to ensure those with hearing loss lead full and fruitful lives.

 

Questions? Comments? Let the Hearlink team know. We’d love to hear from you and continue this very important conversation.
