PLEDGE A BIRTHDAY BOX

Pledge a Birthday Box containing some resident essentials – for example deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo etc. –which we will give to our Oumas and Oupas at our two old age homes for the Deaf as well as the Deaf adults with multiple disabilities.

Be part of the NID 135-year birthday celebration by participating in the Birthday Box project. You will receive a list of resident essentials – for example deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo etc. – to make up a Birthday Box which we will give to our Oumas and Oupas at the two old age homes for the Deaf (Shalom and Rusoord) as well as the Deaf adults with multiple disabilities. The residents in these departments have physical needs and challenges that can only be attended to by others, making it necessary for them to seek the care offered by NID. For these residents, NID is their family and their home. A Birthday Box for each of them will certainly help to make the year ahead special for all of them.

Pledge your box now!

To pledge your birthday box, email pa.deputy@nid.org.za or download the pledge form.

RUN FOR THE DEAF PICKS UP PACE

In March, 50 runners participated in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Half-Marathon to the benefit of NID and raised nearly R130 000 for the Deaf and persons with hearing loss. We aim to continue on this success with our next Run for the Deaf project. In celebration of 135 years of service to the Deaf, NID is hosting its third Commemorative Run in the Worcester area on 16 June 2016.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the care and development of Deaf adults with multiple disabilities. Companies, firms and other organisations are invited to enter a team of 13 participants. Each team runs a leg of 13.5 km (collectively 135 km with an expected 10 teams entered).
