Fundraising in Your Community
Donations to Hear and Say allow babies to hear their very first sounds. With ongoing support, these children learn to listen and speak.
Our long-term supporters even get to see our children attend their first day of school, alongside their siblings and friends. Our donors and fundraisers truly give a gift for life.
Whether you are a family or friend of a child affected by hearing loss, you’ve been through one of Hear and Say’s programs, or if you think we’re a great charity to support – we would love to hear from you.
Hear and Say simply wouldn’t be able to operate without our donors and fundraisers.
All fundraisers will need to be issued authority to fundraise, in order to represent Hear and Say. We can provide you with the support you need to get your fundraising started, and information to help you along the way.
Our team can also assist with fundraising resources, and we’ll try to engage media coverage to promote your efforts (as much as we can).
Find out more, including a step-by-step checklist to getting started and planning your event or activity smoothly.

At 9.10pm on 24 October 2013 our beautiful daughter Maia was born.
The moment of elation was short-lived as we immediately noticed her left ear was missing. I frantically looked to the medical team around me for answers but received none.
Panic set in as we waited 4 days in hospital for an ENT to explain her condition, by which point we already had all the answers from Simone, who runs the Microtia and Atresia Program at Hear and Say.
