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."
How blessed our family is because of you! Hearing aids have completely changed Corban’s life!
Carly was diagnosed with bilateral mild-moderate hearing loss at birth and has had hearing aids since she was 4-months-old.
Thank you so much for being a miracle-maker for my son, Dawson.
Words can't express how grateful we are for the hearing aid grant that you provided for our son, Cameron.
Great News!SB206 also known as “Jack’s Bill”, was approved by the Georgia Senate on Friday night by a vote of 47-6!

In June, 20/20 Hearing was invited to join the Starkey Hearing Foundation in Managua, Nicaragua to give the gift of hearing.
We recently traveled back to Accra, Ghana with The Starkey Hearing Foundation to fit hundreds of men, women and children with hearing aids.
In May of 2013, we were blessed to join a group from Focus Services, Utah State University and The Starkey Hearing Foundation in Accra, Ghana.
