If you’re reading this (and I practically guarantee you are,) you may have noticed the big honking link on my right sidebar. You know, the one with Isla sporting the adorably asymmetrical pig-tails. Well, Isla is raising money for her school, Northern Voices, with a little help from her mom & dad.
Northern Voices is an incredible school that teaches deaf and hard-of-hearing how to speak and listen. All of the kids wear listening devices such as cochlear implants just like Isla. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the work they do there is amazing. Isla has been making incredible progress and is making many new sounds and even a few words. She loves her new school and looks forward to going every morning. The staff, honestly, rocks.
Our family is walking a 5K in May to support Isla’s school. If you would like to make a contribution, you can do so by clicking on Isla’s fundraising page. Donations are accepted online starting as low as one dollar.
Thank you in advance for any support you can give, and to learn more about the great work they do at Northern Voices, check out their website at northernvoices.org.
Admit it; you’re also a bit curious to see if I can walk a 5K without stopping for several naps.
