There are so many heart-warming moments at Hear and Say each day, from babies hearing for the very first time, to adults hearing sounds they’d long forgotten; there are also the incredible stories of the amazing supporters who make all of this work possible.

Maureen Stevenson first came across Hear and Say over a decade ago and was moved by the outcomes made possible for babies born deaf or hard of hearing.

“I first heard the story of Hear and Say when I saw a story on Channel 9 about Jamie-Lee Lewis, and felt deeply that I wanted to make a contribution to this wonderful cause. Before I knew it 10 years had gone by and today I am still happily contributing to Hear and Say,” said Maureen.

While Maureen has made a true difference to the lives of many Queensland families impacted by hearing loss, her decision to donate was also made with financial and ethical reasoning.

“I think it’s a great thing to be able to support amazing causes that one believes in and be able to have control over where you want to direct your funds. I think everyone who has the means to support should do so, as it will not only benefits others but also their own taxes,” said Maureen.

It is always a great feeling to know that you have helped to change the lives of others for the better, and with this outlook Maureen continues to support not only Hear and Say but a number of charities across Australia.

 “I am grateful to be in a position where I have a chance to make a real and lasting difference to peoples’ lives, I feel that this will be my legacy. I know that with my support, Hear and Say have been able to better support babies and children to reach their full potential and that is just wonderful.”
