Opening worlds for individuals, families and communitites

Three Ladies Looking At Camera

Fundraising with the support of your friends and family is a fun way to raise money and awareness for children born with hearing loss. We couldn’t achieve the extraordinary outcomes for children and families without the generous support of people like you.

Fundraising activities can be big or small, whether that’s taking on a personal challenge or hosting your own event. Every initiative makes a difference – and together, we can achieve our vision of opening worlds to create better futures.

Thank you for your efforts in supporting and fundraising for children impacted by hearing loss. Your dedication means so much to so many.

“Once we gained more information in those early days it made things much clearer, and we can now understand the unlimited possibilities Benjamin has.

Hear and Say has played an important role in his development, and it’s been great to learn all the techniques for how to help Benjamin develop at home, engage with his community and connect with friends and family around the world.”

- Caio, dad to three-year-old Benjamin
