By Gina Russo

Thank you for doing the most good for hearing loss through Hearing Health Foundation (HHF)’s Good to Hear giving campaign earlier this month.

You will recall our 24-hour giving period that began on March 3 aligned with the celebration of World Hearing Day―the World Health Organization (WHO)’s annual campaign to raise awareness of hearing loss care and prevention.

All generous donations made during the giving window were 100% matched by a group of  anonymous donors, and all credit card fees for online gifts were waived.

HHF is delighted to report that more than 50 donors who care about hearing loss contributed to a remarkable total of $20,580 in donations!

This number was doubled as a result of the match to a grand total of $41,160 for hearing research and awareness! HHF is truly awed by our supporters’ generosity and commitment.

Funding is critical for our Hearing Restoration Project (HRP), Emerging Research Grants (ERG), Ménière's Disease Grants (MDG), and educational outreach programs, and to the scientists who are working hard to discover better treatments and cures for hearing loss and balance conditions. Giving went above and beyond our expectations for the campaign.

This critical work is only possible because of you, and we’re so grateful for your thoughtfulness and partnership. Only together can we improve quality of life for the millions living with hearing loss.

It's Good to Hear: A March 3 Call to Action

By Lauren McGrath

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.

Heather and her family are among the millions of families worldwide affected by hearing loss.

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.
