Hear and Say
BADGE QLD has been supporting Hear and Say since 2014, generating an impressive $17,000 for the organisation in 2015 through a range of fundraisers and events.
Hear and Say is one of the leading paediatric Auditory-Verbal and Implantable Technologies (including cochlear implants) organisations in the world, teaching children who are deaf to hear, listen and speak since 1992.
Annually, more than 1500 Queensland children and young adults affected by hearing loss benefit from Hear and Say’s services and programs.
As well as monetary donations, BADGE QLD staff have given their time and manpower to run a working bee at Hear and Say’s 10-year-old Nambour Centre. The facility was given a facelift with about a dozen staff pitching in to help with various tasks including gardening, cleaning and general repair work.
