Today is International Day of Sign Languages!
WHY SIGN LANGUAGE? Currently, in the US, more than 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents. Without sign language, parents don't have a way to meaningfully communicate or bond with their deaf child. Without sign language, deaf children can experience language deprivation and social isolation, limiting their potential for a lifetime. Your donation will change that outcome.
WHY DONATE? By sponsoring a family today, you give parents the opportunity to become fluent in American Sign Language. You will help them find Deaf mentors and learn Deaf culture so their child can feel a sense of belonging within the Deaf community. By giving the gift of sign language, you are giving a deaf child a lifetime of meaningful connection with the people they love most - their family.
