Celebrate Dress Loud Day 2021!



May is Speech & Language Awareness Month and we'll be celebrating Dress Loud Day... ALL month long! 

Join us from the comfort of your own home to celebrate and enjoy a month all about raising awareness for the deaf and hard of hearing community. 

With the help from various Ontario Certified Teachers of the deaf, we have developed ready-made lesson plans and activities aimed at raising awareness and building education around the deaf and hard of hearing community. Learn more below!

For VOICE Members and our greater community, we encourage you not only to check out the helpful information and activities prepared for educators, but also take part in dressing LOUD! Pick any day in May to wear your most wild, colourful and fun outfit... and be sure to snap a picture for social media and tag us at @voice4deafkids - everyone who tags us in a picture will be entered to win a prize!

One last thing - if you are feeling motivated, fundraise for VOICE for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children using the fundraising ideas below. Every dollar raised, no matter the amount, makes a meaningful difference at VOICE and helps us to continue our mission of advocating  on behalf of and supporting deaf and hard of hearing children and their families.

Dress Loud Day 2021 Fundraising Ideas

Fundraising for VOICE for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children is easy and makes a meaningful impact on the families we support every day. Below are a list of fundraising ideas that you and your family, friends, class or colleagues can do to raise money to support VOICE. Looking to make an impact right now? Click HERE to donate now. Thank you for your incredible support.

  1. Set a goal and collect pledges from family, friends and coworkers! Consider coming up with a fun challenge that your network can support - perhaps a 5km walk/run/bicycle/hike!
  2. Run a bottle drive for the month of May! Let your family, friends, neighbours and coworkers know that your family is running a bottle drive in support of VOICE. Collect bottles at the end of the month and donate your returns to VOICE!
  3. Offer family car washes! Pick a sunny day to take a walk down the street and offer $10 car washes to your neighbours in support of VOICE. 
  4. Tag us on social media! Re-post our info in May to raise awareness for people who are deaf and hard of hearing and include our  fundraising page at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/voice-for-hearing-impaired-children/  for those that want to support our cause.
  5. Have a garage sale! Spring cleaning has arrived and you know what that means - garage sales! Pick a nice weekend in May to host a garage sale in support of VOICE. Invite your neighbours to do the same and make it a street event (social-distant safe, of course!).

Have an idea of your own? Amazing! Feel free to let us know about it and send us pictures, we'd love to share your support of our organization with our community!
