Hearing is one of our most precious links to the world around us.
But hearing and balance disorders affect more than 50 million Americans who urgently need better treatments and cures.
Consider Heather, 32, who has lived with hearing loss, tinnitus, and Ménière's disease for more than a decade. The conditions have threatened her job security, relationships, and mental well-being. Though treatments have made her healthier, she remains worried for her future.
Advancements in hearing and balance science funded by Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) will dramatically improve the lives of individuals like Heather. But this can only happen with your help.
To make more research possible, HHF invites our committed supporters to participate in Good to Hear, a 24-hour online giving period beginning Sunday, March 3 at 12:00 PM EST, at hhf.org/good-to-hear.
Thanks to an anonymous benefactor, all gifts received by Monday, March 4 at 11:59 AM EST will be doubled! Additionally, all credit card processing fees — ordinarily absorbed by HHF — will be waived! Any amount you can give will automatically have twice the influence on hearing loss research and awareness programs.
Good to Hear aligns with the celebration of World Hearing Day―the World Health Organization (WHO)’s annual March 3 campaign to raise awareness of hearing loss care and prevention. On a day when all eyes will already be on our ears, HHF is determined to engage as many supporters as possible to empower scientific progress.
We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to make the greatest possible impact with your donation, and thank you for your consideration.
