Charity Support - The Ear Foundation

As Piddley Pix grows we would really like to support some of our favourite charities, so we would like to take the opportunity today to introduce you to the first of our nominated charities for the rest of 2010.

The Ear Foundation
Their Vision is  
"All deaf people have the opportunity to hear, communciate and develop spoken language using the latest technological interventions"

The Ear Foundation is an independent charity that works with deaf people and their families in many different ways to make the best use of technologies to improve hearing and communication.
They do this through Education, Family and Clinical services, Carrying out Research and Advocating for access to the latest hearing technologies.
Through a friend of ours we have seen how important the work of The Ear Foundation is and we believe they are vital in helping close the gap between the clinical side of the technology and the actual usage in everyday life.  It is because of this that earlier this year Kev (our artist) took on a challenge to complete the Robin Hood Half Marathon in Nottingham to support this charity (the first half marathon Kev had ever done) and we would like to continue to support the charity and this is why they are one of our nominated charities!

Keep your eyes peeled for the pictures on sale in support of the foundation or you can donate direct to the charity of course!
