Let’s Get LOUD – it’s Loud Shirt Day on Friday October 21
Help give the gift of sound and speech to deaf children. Get involved on Loud Shirt Day – a major annual fundraiser when people are encouraged to wear their brightest and ‘LOUDEST’ clothes to help give the gift of sound and speech to deaf children.
Hearing loss is the most common congenital birth defect, with 3 out of every 1000 babies born diagnosed with a hearing impairment or deafness. As almost all of these children – 92 per cent – are born to hearing parents, it can be a real shock to families. Not-for-profit organisation, the Cora Barclay Centre is urging all South Australians to get behind Loud Shirt Day to help deliver vital services to thousands of local deaf or hearing impaired children.
Whether you fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, as long as your clothes have colour and are LOUD, it will be perfect for Loud Shirt Day.
Why not organise an event at work, school or with friends? Create a theme – Hawaiian, most hideous shirt, back to the 80’s – and get people to donate on the day
