Dress loud in May and help deaf kids


Did you know that deafness is the most common disability in children at birth and as babies grow, hearing becomes essential to the development of their spoken language skills.
Without early detection and intervention, many of these children can be left with development and learning handicaps and some may never reach their full potential.
Loud Shirt Day is on May 16 and Deaf Kids Talking is calling on the Australian public to continue their generous support for deaf and hearing impaired children by getting involved in this annual event.
Groups and individuals can get involved by registering online at www.loudshirtday.com.au; a participation kit with information on how to hold a fun Loud Shirt Day Fundraiser can be downloaded from the site or mailed out to interested individuals.
Loud Shirt Day is a fun day and a fantastic opportunity for Australians from all walks of life to show their support and help give deaf children a voice.
Half the fun is also getting others involved in Loud Shirt Day so let people at your work or school know about it, wear your wildest and loudest clothes on the day – it?s all about making some noise and raising funds for deaf kids on 16 May.
Deaf Kids Talking is a charity which helps deaf and hearing-impaired children learn to listen and speak to enable them to fulfill their individual potential. The charities that come under this umbrella organisation work with children who are deaf and hearing impaired, and their families, teaching them to speak and communicate in the hearing world.
Proceeds from Loud Shirt Day will help fund five deaf children’s charities around Australia who come under the umbrella organisation, Deaf Kids Talking.
