HLAA’s Walk4Hearing is in its 15th year. Walks bring families in 20 cities together to encourage hearing health and hearing protection, and American Girl’s support will shine a light on these efforts–donations will fund educational initiatives that inform families about essential resources and technologies that help people with hearing loss live life to the fullest.
There are more than 48 million Americans living with hearing loss. For more information on HLAA’s educational programs and what American Girl is doing to help, or to learn more about Joss and other Girls of the Year, visit each organization’s website.
