Ways to Get Involved with Some of the Larger Hearing Health Charities

  1. 1. Ways to Get Involved with Some of the Larger Hearing Health Charities You would like to help people struggling with hearing loss, but the choice of charities is tremendous. Just a few of the factors to consider are the cause itself, the trustworthiness of the organization, and how the resources are used. Here are a few hearing-health specific charities you may want to consider as part of your search. Starkey Hearing Foundation – Starkey Hearing Foundation reaches an international audience with its 3 main services programs named Hear Now, Listen Carefully, and Hearing Aid Recycling. The Hear Now program focuses on providing hearing aids to those who cannot afford them on their own. The Listen Carefully Program is provides education to youth in schools about the dangers of loud music and headphone use. The Hearing Aid Recycling does exactly what the name implies. It accepts donations of used hearing aids and refurbishes them for people who cannot afford a new one. For the most upto-date information of the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s activities and current needs visit their website at www.starkeyhearingfoundation.org. Hearing Health Foundation – Hearing Health Foundation was founded in the 1950s by Collette Baker Ramsey to help serve people with hearing loss. This organization fosters research to treat and cure hearing loss and promotes the prevention of hearing conditions through public education. For example, the largest research project at the moment focuses on cures for tinnitus. If you wish to contribute to Hearing Health Foundation, there are several ways to help. Money is always the easiest donation for a charity to accept. This can be in the form of a one-time donation, monthly donations or gift of stock. If you prefer to be involved in a more hands-on way, you can share with them your personal experience with hearing loss or tinnitus, participate in fundraisers, or offer to name one of their research grants. For the most up-to-date information of the Foundation’s activities and current needs visit their website at www.hearinghealthfoundation.org.
