The video is a pretty long, 31 minutes long but worth to watch it. Enjoy.

Empowering Deaf children through literacy

Hello all!

Some of you may not know this. Sorry for not telling you in person. Word has gotten around that I will be going to the Marshall Islands to volunteer for one year and some of you have asked how you can help. Well, here is a way! :).

First, I will be teaching Deaf children between 3 to 5 years old and setting up an Early Intervention program there. The school itself is fairly new, only 4 years old and they serve Deaf children up to high school. Before 4 years ago, Deaf children did not receive an education at all, so that is progress.

I am collecting donations to buy books and DVD’s related to literacy for the children there because they do not have as much stuff as we do here in America. Please see the website for more information. You can donate on the website, through the mail or in person.

The website is:

I will be working with a 501c3 non-profit organization called World Teach.
