Loud Shirt DAy
You’re invited to get LOUD for children with hearing loss. It couldn’t be simpler to show your support. All you need is a wacky shirt and to get LOUD.
Celebrating 11 years of Loud Shirt Day, Queenslander’s are invited to frock up and get loud by hosting their own fundraising fiesta with their family, in their workplace or with friends on Friday, October 19 to raise funds for children with hearing loss.
A national initiative supported by not-for-profit organisation, Hear and Say, seeks to provide hearing impaired children in Australia the intervention, support, and technology required in order to reach their full potential.
In Queensland, up to 180 children will be born with hearing loss every year with the cost to support these children averaging around $10,000 each year, for up to six years.
The therapy Hear and Say delivers, combined with the most advanced hearing technology means children who are deaf or hard of hearing are able to listen and speak, just like their hearing peers.
Raising funds for Loud Shirt Day is as simple as wearing your weirdest and wackiest shirt, dyeing your hair an outrageous colour, dressing up in an outlandish outfit, or simply making a commitment to getting loud for deaf kids.
