Were doing it!! Dave and I will travel around the world, we hope to raise Deaf awareness internationally by sharing our experience. We will meet with Deaf storytellers, community leaders, youth, and organizations from several countries including New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China, Thailand, India, Nepal, and Kenya. We plan to capture the connections through video, snapshots and journal blogs.
After nearly a year in development, our commitment to this project is set! We now turn to you, our friends and family, for support. If you believe in our vision, there are three ways you can help us:
