Spread the Gift of Sound!
September 13, 2018
What do you see when you look out your window or step through your door? Is it so familiar that beauty and adventure no longer catch your attention? Is opportunity waiting, yet going unrecognized?
As busy Sertomans navigating our personal, professional, and philanthropic journeys, it’s easy to focus on the destination. Sometimes we forget to stop and smell the flowers along the way. Those ‘flowers’ bring beauty, adventure and opportunity into our lives, which make the journey even more enjoyable.
No doubt, you have heard or read about CELEBRATE SOUND Don’t Walk in Silence® at least once. Think of it as one of the flowers that can help you reach your philanthropic destinations sooner rather than later. It can work at the club level or on a personal level.
CELEBRATE SOUND events are a wonderful way to share our hearing health mission with others through raising awareness on a topic that touches us all. Let’s not Walk in Silence. Instead, let’s share what we know about hearing health while reaching project goals of helping others. Stop and recognize the flowers you pass each and every day.
Now look further and see who you can share the CELEBRATE SOUND flower with. You don’t have to arrange bouquets on your own. Share that CELEBRATE SOUND flower with someone else and let them use it to help others.
It doesn’t matter if its your Sertoma club, you, or if another group/individual has a project that needs a ‘fundraising flower’ added to its bouquet. As the hearing health message is shared, others benefit from the funds the CELEBRATE SOUND event raises, and another journey is finished with fewer roadblocks and potholes.
Would your employer like to set up an employee fundraiser to provide aid to a local charity? What about your child’s school? Do they need a fundraiser that would educate the students about hearing health? Sharing the CELEBRATE SOUND program with local university and community colleges is great place to start.
Wherever your daily life leads you, there are opportunities for others to stop and smell the CELEBRATE SOUND flower. Throw open those windows and look around—turn that doorknob and step out into your life. Who will you share the CELEBRATE SOUND flower with?
Start spreading the word today. Host an event or encourage others to get involved. It’s simple. Here’s how!
