Last Week of BGGIVES.ORG Challenge!

If you believe that Deaf people have the right to live where they can have full access to communication — where they can learn and grow and be happy — this is an opportunity to help make that happen.

Fluent communication is a basic human right — a NECESSITY if we are to learn and get along with each other. KyADAPT stands alone in the state to provide a safe living environment that includes American Sign Language. That is how our clients communicate. To do otherwise would only hold them back from becoming all they can be. We’ve seen all of our clients blossom and develop skills that they otherwise probably wouldn’t have.

The final matching GoodGiving opportunity, the Buzzer Beater Challenge starts on Thursday, December 11 at 11:59 a.m. and lasts until the end of the Challenge (December 12 at 11:59 p.m.) or until the match pool is exhausted. BUT, we encourage you to donate as soon after noon as you can, before the matching funds are all gone.
