How To Get Involved
“Join the conversation” is more than a clever tagline for us. It’s our company’s goal to make it easier for individuals with hearing loss and other communication disorders to fully participate in the conversations taking place around them. It’s also an invitation for all of us to engage in the discussions necessary to help that goal. We invite you to listen, share, and get involved.
The first step to joining the conversation is to listen and become educated about the issues and challenges that the Deaf and Hard of Hearing routinely face. Do this by subscribing to our newsletter, reading our blog, and joining our online community.
As you learn about the issues and the work that organizations like Vü are doing, it’s time for you to share that information with your community and get them involved. Invite family, friends, and colleagues to join the conversation.
With your help, the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) can join in the conversation at home, in a classroom, at work and in their community. Through our ‘Shop for a Cause‘ program you can support us by using our affiliate link to shop for your favorite products on popular websites.
Your support helps fund the development of Vü’s patent-pending smart devices. These smart mobile devices help users know when someone speaks, what they are saying, and where to look to follow the conversation. Simply click the button below to see participating retailers.
