Funds raised for Deaf Children Australia

100%

Robert Henry, CEO and Founder of Hear for Less & Noel Henderson, Fundraising and Development Manager of Deaf Children Australia, post training.

Your donation to the Hear for Less Deaf Children Australia Tough Mudder team will help enable Deaf Children Australia to run a family camp for deaf and hard of hearing children and their families.

Most deaf children are in mainstream schools and often, they are the only student in their school with a hearing loss. The camps are one of the few opportunities where the students get together, meet each other – and realise they’re not the only deaf person in the world. It is also important for the children and their families to discover that they are not alone in the challenges that they face. This discovery weekend will form bonds that will allow them to share their current and future experiences with each other well after the activities have concluded.
The camp would be filled with adventure, excitement and lots of fun activities.

The benefits of the camp include:
*       Providing a deaf friendly environment where every child can feel “It’s ok to be deaf”
*       Opportunities to share, learn, question and grow
*       Networking for parents and a chance to discuss the different paths and decisions families make

The camp will enable the children to create a support network to enhance their communication skills and sense of identity, and increase their self-esteem. This in turn can lead to greater participation in family and community life.

If we make our fundraising target, the outcome will be deaf and hard of hearing children and their families that are better informed, feel connected and less isolated. Please help us reach our goal!

Tough Mudder is possibly the toughest event on the Planet.

Hear for Less CEO & Founder Robert Henry is leading a growing number of participants in Tough Mudder, Saturday 17th October 2015 in Melbourne, to raise much needed funds for Deaf Children Australia (DCA).

For this event our goal is to raise $1,000.00. There are other events that have been entered in to which will help us all to reach our overall major goal of $10,000.00.

What is Tough Mudder?

Tough Mudder is an event is put together by UK special forces, to test your fears and limits. 18 – 20 kms of running and obstacles which include fire, ice water, heights, claustrophobia, mud – lots of mud and electric shocks to name but a few.

This isn’t a race. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won’t find anywhere else.

You involvement, at any level, will mean the world to Deaf Children Around Australia and we thank you in advance for your contribution.

I survived, but now I need your help!

By  | Fund raising | No Comments

Clare Hines has been dealt a bad hand in life. After suffering with Epilepsy for the last 10 years, during a routine MRI scan in December 2011, at the age of 27 Clare was diagnosed with a very rare 2.8cm Acoustic Neuroma Brain Tumour. To Clare’s absolute surprise, just 6 weeks after being diagnosed Clare found out she was pregnant, the question was raised by the doctors, is it was safe enough to proceed with the pregnancy? With the seizures, strong epileptic medicine, Brain Tumour and now the reality that Clare would become unilaterally Deaf following surgery, this fast became a story of survival.  On top of all this was the medical bills…

Clare’s story really struck a chord with me and reminded me the very reason why I have created my company Hear for Less. I am here to change lives, so will do whatever I can to help Clare and her family out.

Clare is now Deaf in her right ear and still paying off her original hospital bills, which will take years. As a person who doesn’t ask for much, Clare reluctantly set-up a giving page, which has allowed strangers from all over the world to donate the much needed funds towards her campaign. Clare needs at least $5,000.00 to fund the latest in Hearing Aid technology so that Clare can hear her baby boy and the sounds she loves. Her giving site will end on Friday 31st July and Clare has already achieved amazing 71% or her goal.

You can help Clare today. Please click DONATE NOW! to give whatever you can towards Clare campaign and help her to hear again.

In the link you will also be able to read Clare’s full story and get the latest updates from her.

We want Clare to have the support she so desperately needs to improve her quality of life, regardless of whether that’s through Hear for Less or via another solution.

Thank you in advance,

Robert Henry
