Do you, or a family member, or a friend have a hearing loss? Do you know someone returning from military service who developed a hearing loss or tinnitus while serving our country? Do you want to help us find a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus?
Help us fundraise for a cure!
We are excited to announce the launch of our new giving platform that will help you do just that. Join us in finding a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus by creating a fundraising event for Giving Tuesday, on December 3 this year, an international day of giving that kicks off the holiday giving season.
But don’t worry--if you aren’t able to plan something for for Giving Tuesday, no problem. Our giving platform will be available to you year-round for any event or giving idea that you may have.
There are many different ways to create your own fundraising event, ranging from golf outings and bake sales, to birthdays and weddings, to marathons and triathlons. Let your talents and interests lead you--no event is too large or too small!
If you’re looking for a unique way to create a fundraising event, we have several examples of past events, such as Publishing for Vision & Hearing and DJ’ing for a Cure, alongside more traditional sporting event examples like the NYC Marathon, Marine Corp Marathon, and Aquaphor NYC Triathlon. Looking for other ideas? We have those for you too!
If you’ve never fundraised before, don’t let that stop you. We provide email templates and examples of how to reach out to friends and family to ask for support of your event. We also provide a host of social media sharing options. Did you know the average person has 300 friends on Facebook? If you create an event and ask each of your Facebook friends to donate $5, you can raise $1,500!
Once you’ve nailed down how you’d like to fundraise, in three easy steps you’ll be on your way to helping us support groundbreaking research to cure hearing loss and tinnitus. 1.) Register; 2) Create your Giving Page; 3) Share your personal page with family and friends and ask for their support.
Thank you in advance for your help toward finding a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus.
