    Today, 1 in 6 American teenagers has permanent hearing loss due to high-volume sounds. Sporting events, concerts, headphones, and hairdryers can damage kids' hearing in a matter of seconds. Noise-induced hearing loss is permanent, but preventable. Listen Carefully is Starkey Hearing Foundation's awareness campaign to spread the message about noise-induced hearing loss and prevent a hearing loss epidemic. Starkey Hearing Foundation is an international nonprofit that gives the gift of hearing to those in need around the world. Last year they donated 175,000 hearing aids in nearly 40 countries, including the United States. Listen Carefully is hosting a national video contest inviting U.S. middle school and high school students (ages 13-18) from across the country to submit PSAs to help educate their peers about the issue. One lucky student(s) will win the chance to have Interscope Grammy-Nominated Recording  artist Aloe Blacc perform a private concert at their school in Spring 2015. Disney star Caroline Sunshine, who suffers from hearing loss, and Chris & Kyle Massey want you to participate. Submissions will be accepted until December 31; voting will take place between January 13 and 31, 2015, with the winner announced in February. You can learn more at: Video Contest

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to let everyone, that is interested, know about my Fundraiser coming up May 6th. I know it's in Denver and not L.A. but if anyone live in the area we would love for you to come. If you can't make it please consider donating. A little goes a long way in Uganda. This year all the proceeds go to The Kusasira Tuition Program in Seeta, Uganda. We all have heard about Kony and the brutal, violent, horrific man he is and what he and the LRA did to Uganda. The country is now in recovery. That is why I wanted to help the children receive an education. Their education is not free. They have to pay or they don't go to school. They have to wear uniforms and have the additional fees such as books, pencils, etc. Most of you know that their living conditions are so sad. An average family is 9-12 in a one or 2 room mud hut. In order for them to become self-reliant and be able to make changes they need an education. They are very proud people. That is why we want to help with a portion of the tuition.    For more information on the event and/or donating please see my web site at www.givehopeachance.com. Please e-mail me if you have any questions.  PEACE TO ALL OF YOU!! Haidyn
