Carly age 8
Carly wants to raise money to help support children and families with hearing loss.
"After my baby sister was born last year with hearing loss, my other sister also was diagnosed a few months later. Now they both wear hearing aids! I learned hearing aids are super expensive and not all kids are able to have them. Kids who can't hear need to be able to hear if they want too!!! I want to help them hear better. I want every child to be able to own a pair of hearing aids! That's my goal this summer!"
She originally came up with the idea to do a lemon aid stand, since that required a permit Carly came up with a different plan. To use her love of sewing to design stuffed lemons to sell and help raise funds and raise awareness on behalf of her sisters and other kids like them.
( note: lemons are made by an 8 year old.. I very talented 8 year old but still one that is 8.)
Carly wants to ensure that the money she raises goes directly to families in need. If you or someone you know needs assistance with a hearing loss expense of any kind please email us your story at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also love to hear your stories and ideas!
