If you are part of a company or non-profit organization, you can get involved. A dress down day (or sports team apparel day) is a great way to support 20/20 Hearing. It is really simple to become a 20/20 Organization:
Work with your company's office manager or Human Resources administrator to schedule a 20/20 Hearing dress down day at your office(s).
Ask for permission to send two e-mails to all employees at your office(s). The first should be sent one week from the date, and be an e-mail announcing the 20/20 Hearing dress down day. The second should be sent the day before the date, and be a reminder. A sample e-mail message is below.
Employees that dress down bring in a donation ($20 or $25 per employee), and give it to those designated to collect the donations.
You collect the donations, and mail a check/ checks to 20/20 Hearing.
"Next [Insert Day of Week], [Insert Date], we will have a [dress down/sports fan] day in support of 20/20 Hearing, a foundation that gives the gift of hearing and ensures the right to communicate. 20/20 Hearing was started by a hearing-impaired boy, Jack McConnell, when he was just 12-years-old, and his foundation now serves hearing-impaired children all over the world!
We encourage you to read Jack's story at www.2020hearing.org.
If you would like to participate, please bring [$20/ $25] in cash or check made out to 20/20 Hearing to work with you on [Insert Day of Week], [Insert Date], and provide it to [designee]. 20/20 Hearing is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and your donation is fully tax deductible."
