I’d like you to join me for a celebration, complete with a contest and prizes.
This Saturday, September 14, marks the one-year anniversary of my favorite project in the world, Show Me Your Ears.
What is this campaign? It is an awareness that ears—whether they can hear or not—are beautiful. I spent two years hiding my hearing aids behind long hair. Finally, I said ENOUGH! You can now often see me with a ponytail with my royal blue hearing aids in public view.
I’m proud to show off my ears. If you are, too, join me by sending your ear photo today. Learn more on the Show Me Your Ears page.

Thank you for the repost!
As a kid I was totally embarrassed over my hearing loss because of the way I was treated. I actually learned how to wiggle my ears so I could adjust my hearing aids in class without having to use my hands so the kids sitting behind me wouldn’t see me and see my hearing aids- Or worse hear the feedback! Now as an adult I could care less who sees them and now I use my ear wiggling skill to entertain my kids. 🙂
