May 24, 2019 — Each of us is surrounded by a myriad of sounds that brings to life many of the things we hold dear. A child’s laugh. Our favorite song. A bird chirping. We might take these for granted, but 48 million Americans are experiencing some degree of hearing loss that partially or fully inhibits their ability to engage with these sounds.
On May 31, the Miracle Ear Foundation is challenging everyone to walk in someone else’s shoes
and experience how difficult it can be to live with hearing loss.
The annual One Day Without Sound pledge asks people to wear ear plugs for one day to realize how precious our hearing is and consider ways to take better care of our ears.
To learn more about the Miracle-Ear Foundation’s One Day Without Sound pledge, as well as the most common causes of hearing loss and how to prevent it, contact Jana Anderson at (763) 268-4083.
The Miracle-Ear Foundation is a Minneapolis-based non-profit organization that has supported underserved adults and children across the country with their hearing healthcare needs for nearly 30 years. Thanks to the generous support of Miracle-Ear franchise owners and donors across the country, the Miracle-Ear Foundation has donated more than 21,000 hearing aids to 11,170 children and adults nationwide.
