Favorite Charity: Madi's Message
I created Madi's Message to help a little hard-of-hearing girl that needs new hearing aids as her speech is delayed. All proceeds of our bracelets go to help purchase hearing aids for her and others like her. My favorite American Sign Language sign is the hand symbol for "I love you," and I use it with all my loved ones, hearing and deaf alike. I thought this made a wonderful message to send to others, that despite the differences between people, the voice of love is universal. Thus, Madi's Message was born. I wrote a poem about tolerance and love, and each piece comes with a card displaying this poem and Madi's story.
