THE STORY:

Holley-Hawa Param wrote -

Summer is an exciting time for kids to look forward to. School will soon be out and it's all playing with friend for the next 2 months! ...At least that's what I remember from growing up. For my youngest daughter however, it's not the same. She becomes anxious and increasingly sad as the school year comes to and end. Every morning this last summer, the summer before and the summer before that- she asked me if she could go back to school again. Why? Because she is deaf and when the school year ends, her strong Deaf social interactions end. Hearing children have access to countless activities and camps. I'm always amazed at my friends' hearing kids' summer program options. And then disappointed at how very little there is out there for our Deaf & Hard of Hearing children. Summer programs help children open their minds to possibilities, whether it's sports camp, art classes, young writers retreats, etc. Deaf Spotlight is a non-profit organization that focuses on the arts. They hold events for both Deaf adults and children. Deaf Spotlight supports the idea of creating further summer opportunities for D/HH youth to open minds and cultivate potential. Unlocking creativity in children aid in growth of all areas of the mind and emotional well being. Giving more oportunities to D/HH youth like this is essential! Everything helps! Please help us raise funds for new oportunities for our kids. Thank you, Holley and Savina
