Happy Holidays from WRAD, Inc.......
WRAD is celebrating 27 years of promoting change as the leading organization that promotes equality by creating, sharing, and protecting interests with new technologies through recreation and culture of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community worldwide. It is because of you, our friends, that WRAD has been able to support this mission for many years.
Today I am personally asking you to join with me and make a generous contribution to help the next generation of our people and families to support WRAD toward our next 27 years and to consider an additional end-of year, tax-deductible contribution.
Our future is bright, and with your support we will expand our current recreational and cultural programs, launch new programs, and continue to make a difference in the lives of our WRAD community, deaf, hard of hearing, sign language students, teachers, parents, friends, and deaf-friendly people.
We continue our programs to provide recreational and cultural activities and events in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community that directly support our people and for the community to better understand the needs of our people to the general population.
We need your support to ensure that our programs are successful.
Our programs are already making a real difference. In 2012, we launched a new website with a wonderful web designer as well as promoting the Mr and Miss Deaf International Pageant in Ankara, Turkey. We also continued to provide discounted and fun events at amusement parks like the 6 Flags Magic Mountain and snowboarding and skiing at Mountain High . We also have pizza nights encouraging both parents and sign language students to improve their signing skills and to interact with the deaf and hard of hearing community as well as to raise funds for different organizations including the United States Deaf Football Association for a player to go to Turkey to participate in the World Deaf Football Championships. We helped to host the lectures and events in Malaysia and Thailand including the picnic at the waterfalls with the DHH community. If you look back in our 27 years, you will see that we have made a big difference in the community and expect more to come in the years ahead.
