Congratulations to SolarEar, who was just named one of the winners of Verizon Wireless's "Powerful Answers Award". SolarEar is a healthcare winner, and has been given $500,000 to expand facilities, testing, and access to hearing aids for the hearing impaired in developing countries. Ears for Years is proud to be be a SolarEar distributor, and couldn't be more appreciative of Verizon's generosity! Great things are in store for the future. Thank you Verizon!
We are so excited that Chloe + Isabel merchandiser, Julie Maxwell, has teamed up with Ears for Years! Julie Maxwell graduated from UC San Diego and has recently become involved with Ears for Years. She has decided to use her passion- jewelry- to help deaf children in need. For every item bought off the Ears for Years page, part of the proceeds will go towards getting a deaf child in a developing country a solar powered hearing aid. So get your shopping on, buy some super cute jewelry, and change a live!
