Your nomination could change a life

Hear for the Holidays 2023—Nominations Now Open at Acadian Hearing

by | Nov 15, 2023 | Hear for the Holidays, Patient Resources

The Season of Giving Rings in With the Gift of Hearing 

The holiday spirit is about connection, warmth, and sharing moments with loved ones. However, for the one in eight people affected by hearing loss, these moments can feel distant and disheartening. It’s within these heartfelt gatherings around the dinner table that the impact of hearing loss is felt most acutely, with some loved ones missing out on laughter, conversations, and the closeness that the season brings. 

Understanding the critical role hearing plays in connecting us to our world and to each other, Acadian Hearing Services proudly announces the opening of nominations for our annual “Hear for the Holidays” giveaway.  

This heartfelt initiative aligns seamlessly with our commitment to community enrichment, a core value etched into our DNA. Our mission extends beyond hearing care; it’s about enhancing the lives within our community, embodying a spirit of service and compassion mirrored in the stories of those we help. 

The Essence of the Campaign 

Through “Hear for the Holidays,” we invite you to nominate someone special—a family member, a friend, or a community hero—who deserves the joy of crystal-clear hearing. Your nomination could change a life, gifting someone the ability to fully indulge in the magic of the season and beyond. 

The chosen recipient will receive a premium pair of prescription hearing aids, complete with premium hearing care, ensuring they experience the holiday season as it should be—filled with the rich sounds of celebration and familial love. 

How to Nominate 

Sharing your story about why your nominee deserves this gift is crucial. We ask that you fill out the nomination form with as much detail as possible. Every nuance, every anecdote, and every testament to their impact and need deepens our understanding and helps us select a winner who truly stands out. 

Nominations will be accepted until November 30, 2023. The announcement of the lucky winner will soon follow, with an invitation extended for a comprehensive hearing assessment and the fitting of their new hearing aids. 

Celebrating Last Year’s Winner 

In 2022, Don Bradley’s life was changed thanks to this initiative. His wife’s touching nomination highlighted his selfless service through a career in law enforcement and his generous heart. Don’s tale is a testament to the power of community and the difference a detailed, thoughtful nomination can make.  

His story, filled with dedication and sacrifice, resonated deeply with our team and community, emphasizing the essence of “Hear for the Holidays”—to uplift those who have uplifted others. 

A Call to Action for a Cause 

The response from our community to this campaign has been overwhelming and heartwarming. We are inspired by the stories we hear and the lives we are able to touch. But this isn’t just about hearing aids; it’s about addressing the stigma of hearing loss, encouraging timely treatment, and supporting each other in the journey toward better hearing health. 

We invite you to participate in this year’s “Hear for the Holidays” by nominating someone deserving. 

Nominate a loved one
