Supporting: CEID Virtual Walk-A-Thon 2021 for Center For Early Intervention On Deafness


Campaign has ended.


Dear friends and family,

We are reaching out to you to join us in opening the doors of opportunity for some very special children. Without question, 2021 has been a strange year; many of us learned new computer (Zoom) skills, enjoyed fresh outdoor activities, hustled to find pop-up clinics to get COVID vaccines, reached out to folks near & far – and mostly just got one year older.


For our essential workers, we’ve watched them stretch their energy & expertise in ways never imagined possible; working 12-14 hours a day in front of computer screens or at health clinics, or driving to our homes & offices delivering packages and groceries… for this we are grateful.

Now it’s our turn! The Rosie, Jim & Jill team want to make 2021 even more meaningful.. to recognize the essential team at CEID by raising $2,021 each (combined goal of $4,042) to help CEID continue to thrive. We invite you to join us, either at Moraga Country Club or donating with a quick push of the button on this page.

CEID’s team has shown their commitment, creativity, and determination during this challenging year; they’ve never stopped finding ways to assure early hearing, communication, language and learning by:

Hosting daily ZOOM nursery school classes for preschool children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

• Providing parents of newly diagnosed babies the emotional support they need to make it through each day

• Teaching parents how to put on their baby’s hearing aid or cochlear implant and learn new auditory training activities

Offering weekly sign language classes to parents and caregivers

• Consulting with seniors who are receiving new hearing aids for the first time and providing them comfort and instruct in using this new technology - through ZOOM!

For those of you who have benefitted directly from CEID's expertise as a client or student, or as a community member who simply appreciates the importance of CEID's resilience, please join & support our efforts. Thank you!
