Holiday Gift Suggestion - Adopt-A-Sign

Is there someone on your list who has it all?   Perhaps the gift of a donation to the Deaf Culture Centre Animated Signing Dictionary for Kids is something they would appreciate – did you know that when you donate you can even 'sponsor' a specific sign?  It might make a great gift!

Dear Supporters and Donors,

We hope all is great with you! As you know, we are the Co-Directors of the DEAF CULTURE CENTRE - Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf.  We are completing an amazing landmark project – the new Animated Signing Dictionary for Kids.  We are writing to you for support as this project is dear to us and so important for Deaf kids. 

Please donate NOW for the first animated signing dictionary for children. With this dictionary kids can finally look up words independently in American Sign Language (ASL) and find their meaning and their English counterpart. They can also look up English words and find the animated ASL counterpart. This is unlike any previous dictionary where kids could only look up English words and find static pictures of signed words. Since signs are dynamic this was insufficient. This new interactive resource will have a huge impact on literacy of Deaf children, early language acquisition for both Deaf and hearing children and can improve communication with their families. You will get a tax receipt online immediately.

If you have already donated, thank you. You may also sign up to fundraise – it is free online!  By registering, you will be able to spread the word and notify friends and family. Your effort will allow us to complete this comprehensive animated signing dictionary!

Support the gift of literacy for Deaf children - one of the most powerful gifts any child could receive!  We truly appreciate your support. If you have any questions, email us.

Warmest wishes,

Anita and Joanne
