Lisa Macari is a local Doctor of Audiology and in 2006 she opened The Hearing Wellness Centre. Now located in the Tecumseh Medical Centre, Lisa and her staff have been humbled and a little overwhelmed by the success of The Hearing Wellness Centre.
“We are so happy with the way that we’ve seen our practice grow,” says Lisa, “and we deeply appreciate how blessed we are to be able to do work every day that we truly love. Hearing loss can have such a profound impact on people’s lives. I have seen first-hand – within my own family – just how much of a struggle daily life can become when a person has hearing loss.”
For all of these reasons – but especially motivated by a desire to give back – the team at The Hearing Wellness Centre decided to “Gift it Forward.” Inspired by a homily at her church, Lisa and her staff decided to sponsor a contest that would share the gift of hearing with a deserving person within the community.
“We’re inviting people to nominate someone in their lives – a friend, a family member, a neighbour or a colleague – who struggles with hearing loss, but is unable to afford hearing aids,” explains Lisa. “We’re asking them to write a 100 word description of why this person needs this help. We’ll look through all the entries and choose one for a full hearing aid prize package.”
The Grand Prize is a hearing aid package valued at $5,000.00, including assessment, fitting, hearing aids and three years of post-fitting service.
“We have all been so blessed in our lives, in our families and in our careers,” says Lisa. “We want to share our blessings and help someone who’s not as fortunate. And, we’re hoping to inspire others in the community to share – to Gift it Forward.”
Two options are available to nominate someone for this Grand Prize: Go online to https://www.facebook.com/HearingWellnessCentre/app_208195102528120 to complete and submit the entry form and a 100 word essay; or to enter by mail, send a 100 word essay by mail to The Hearing Wellness Centre, 13278 Tecumseh Rd. E., Suite #104, Tecumseh, Ontario N8N 3T6.
The contest closes Saturday, November 30th.
