Have you heard of Hear the World FOUNDATION? Well…to help increase awareness for their cause, Hear the World Foundation relies on its ambassadors who appear in an annual calendar photographed by globally recognized musician and photographer, Bryan Adams. The celebrity ambassadors are photographed in the Hear the World pose synonymous with conscious hearing. This year people like Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz, Vanessa Paradis, Jean Paul Gaultier and Elizabeth Jagger are featured in the calendar. Each ambassador shares the same goal: to raise awareness of the importance of good hearing and the consequences of hearing loss, particularly amongst children and support those affected. Nearly 660,000 children around the world are born with significant hearing loss each year. Hearing loss affects 15% of the world’s population yet it receives little recognition or acknowledgement. Nearly half the cases are preventable.
Hear the World promotes projects that support children with hearing loss, to enable them to develop at an appropriate rate for their age and to give access to school education. Since 2006, Hear the World has supported more than 50 projects across five continents and has already given countless people the chance of better hearing.
Hear the World Foundation envisions a world in which everyone has the opportunity to experience good hearing. What a great cause right? You should take your own Hear the World photo and post it using #HearTheWorld, if you do, share the link with me below!!
