Last time we posted about our hearing aid Charity Drive in Tampa. It was a huge success and we’re very excited to share with you results. This rally was for people to recycle their hearing aids that they don’t need any more. This is a great way to help seniors and other people to have access to hearing aids. They otherwise could not afford them.
Hearing aids can be very expensive and while they are generally tailored to fit individual people, they are sometimes interchangeable. We’re very proud of our students and their families generosity. We appreciate them coming out and supporting our drive for Tampa hearing aids.
Deafness is More Common Than You Think
Helping the deaf and hearing disabled has long been a passion of mine as many people do not know the extent of deafness in America. Deafness is a serious disability that has varying degrees. It not only affects older people but also even children. We posted a video before about a child that was unable to hear what was able to hear the sound of his mother’s voice thanks to a new hearing aid. To see his face light up when he could hear his mother’s voice was truly a treasure.
Many people think of senior citizens and older ones when they think of hearing aids but as you can see that is simply not the case. Hearing aids help a variety of people both young and old. Younger people can suffer from deafness simply from a congenital disease or any kind of trauma to the eardrum.

Well, it’s been awhile! But, we are back. We are just getting ready for our summer vacation here at ERHS.org, and we are very excited to give our final farewell to our seniors who are graduating this year. We’re happy to announce that we’re going to have a Korean Fashion themed prom to celebrate the end of the school year. A lot of our students are into Korean clothing so we decided to give the students what they want!
The Kpop craze has taken over our school and we love to see our students not only enjoying the Korean entertainment, but also expanding their minds by learning more about the language and culture. Our most popular language class is now Korean. Our students are more interested in learning Korean so that they can understand Kpop better. Also a lot of our students like to watch Korean dramas and you are able to get a lot more out of the drama from knowing what is actually being sad and not solely relying on the subtitles.
There are a variety of resources that are students have also look to help supplement their Korean language learning. For more resources you can click below.
We decided to make this year’s prom Korean themed so that our students can expressed their interest in other cultures. So, be ready to dress up in your favorite Kpop fashion, or your favorite Stars Korean airport fashion. Fashion is a huge part of the Korean entertainment industry and we are excited to Dive Right In. If you need help finding examples of what you can wear for Korean style clothes and fashion, feel free to check out this link to see more. There, you can see Korean dresses, Korean outfits, and where to buy Korean fashion online. Our students have recommended this website to explore Korean outfits and find out more about what you can wear if you are not already into the Kpop fashion wave.
Good news, students! This weekend we will be having a charity drive to help out our senior citizens. ERHS is partnering to encourage people to donate their old hearing aids. Tampa is known for it’s kind locals and their giving spirit, so let’s make this the best charity drive ever!
If your parents, grandparents or any of their friends and family have a hearing aid that they don’t use anymore, why not ask them if they will donate it to a worthy cause?
Likely many of us take hearing for granted, but some people aren’t so lucky. Lots of times, hearing health gradually declines so it’s hard to notice at first. After a while, though, people notice that they couldn’t hear as well as they used to. But, thanks to them and the generous friends and family of ERHS, our generous and business-savvy students help some families in need get hearing aids so they can hear the voices of their loved ones at Weebly.
Even children born with auditory problems can benefit. See this video of a boy hearing for the first time!
We’re happy to be able to arrange and participate in the event and would love to see you there on Saturday! Be sure to tweet to your friends about it. Take care. Go Chipmunks!
