I'm Elysa Bratic, I am a senior at Royal Oak High School. This year we have to complete a senior service project, what I have chose to do mine on is working to raise as much money as possible for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services. I'm also going to be collecting bottles on November 30th if you leave the bottles on your porch and send me your address! This organizations goal is is to help children who are deaf or hard of hearing embrace and establish a positive deaf identity to share with the rest of the world. They serve 27 countries helping Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Services; offering a variety of programs to address the needs of the community. They teach these kids how to demonstrate knowledge, confidence, and leadership to share with others. They also provide ASL exposure, positive role models, self confidence, and resources for Deaf and hard of hearing families. This organizations does wonders for children who use ASL. Help us earn our goal to create a better awareness and a better life for ASL children and their families!
