Are you a student inspired by 20/20 Hearing and want to know how to get involved? A dress down day (or hat day, sports team apparel day or spirit wear day) is a great way to support 20/20 Hearing.
Work with your school's administrator to get a day on the school calendar for a 20/20 Hearing Dress Down Day. If there is competition for dress down days at your school, tell them that 20/20 Hearing was started by a student, and that your school’s students will not only be supporting a good cause, but they will be inspired to serve by Jack's example.
One week before the date, ask the school administrator to mail out an announcement to students and parents, telling them about the 20/20 Hearing dress down day. A sample e-mail is below.
Students that dress down bring in a donation ($5 or $10 per student), give it to their homeroom teacher, and the teachers give the donations to the administrator that approved the 20/20 Hearing dress down day.
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 day/spirit wear day/ sports team apparel day] in support of 20/20 Hearing, a foundation that gives the gift of hearing and restores 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 with your child to inspire them to use their gifts to serve (read it here: www.2020hearing.org).
If your student would like to participate, please have him or her bring [$5/$10] in cash or check made out to 20/20 Hearing to school on [Insert Day of Week], [Insert Date], and it will be collected by the [first period teacher/homeroom teacher]. 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!
We have much to celebrate! We are so excited to share with you that our bill, also known as “Jack’s Bill”, passed Georgia's Senate Insurance Committee unanimously yesterday!
I will never be able to thank you all enough for your kindness! I wish I could share every letter and story we get from so many grateful families...
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.
