After a month of speculation, House of Hearing is proud to announce the winners of our seasonal competition “Hear for the Holidays” as Carma and Jared!

Flashback to November, we asked local residents to nominate someone in need of hearing support.

Our decisions were based on your touching stories that you sent in, and we were so moved by each and every one of them!

It was truly difficult to choose just one winner, so we decided to give two people the gift of hearing and a new life. On December 18, the House of Hearing announced the first winner as Carma, and three days later, Jared.

Through reading your nominations and your kind words sent in, we have truly recognized how remarkable each of you is and want to take the time to say thank you for all of your contributions.

We hoped to have put a smile on your faces and spread some much-needed positivity!

Winner, Carma:

The pandemic has been difficult for everyone, but Carma has especially suffered, as she found it hard to stay in contact with her loved ones.

Simple conversation became very difficult and she often misunderstood what others were saying. On one occasion, she broke down into tears after she thought she heard her family saying her sister had died.

Her hearing loss took a toll on her confidence and she often felt left out at get-togethers. She even thought her family was making fun of her because she frequently got the conversation so wrong!

It was an emotional visit, and we were so happy to meet Carma and improve her life for the better.

Winner, Jared:

Jared was nominated by both his wife, Aubrey, and his daughter, Kaylee.

Dedicating 15 years of his life to serving the community as a member of law enforcement, he assisted and saved many lives.

As a result of his job, he has put his own life on the line many times. However, constant fire alarms and loud bangs have taken an impact on his hearing.

Kaylee describes her father as a hands-on, selfless protector and we couldn’t agree more! We are so glad to be able to give back to Jared after everything he has done for the community.
