It's not over 'til we say it's over! Yes - we are in it for one more day because we know there are still donors out there! Please, help us with this last push and make a difference in the lives of Huskies and the patients they will serve in Krakow, Poland. We've got this!

Only five days left! Can you make a donation?

We asked.

You answered.

We are so thankful to say that Heart of Hearing has surpassed our $5,000 goal! And we know there is more work to be done.

The costs for the NIU Heart of Hearing trip will exceed $8,000, so we are raising the bar. Please share the message with your networks and if you haven't had an opportunity to give, please consider doing so. We will change lives during this trip, and you can be part of that.

Thanks again for being part of Heart of Hearing.

Heart of Hearing continues!

February 27, 2023

With only eight days left, the support for Heart of Hearing continues to grow! We can't thank you enough for the outpouring of support! Your donations will allow us to do great things.

Please continue to share the Heart of Hearing message with others! While we are nearly at our $5,000 goal, the actual budget for the trip exceeds that amount! Every dollar matters! 

Thank you again for your support.

Thank you! Thank you!

What can we say? The outpouring of support we have received so far has been tremendous! 

- We are 58 percent towards our $5,000 goal. 

- We have received donations from across the country.

Thank you! 

Please know that your donations to Heart of Hearing will make a difference in the lives of those who need hearing services. At the same time, your donation will provide Huskie students with a life-changing experience. We are thankful!

Let's continue what we've started and raise awareness for Heart of Hearing. Together we can change lives! 

We're off to a great start!
