Butterflies will brighten your day
and give a deaf child wings!
“Our daughter now wants to hear everything and she wants to be heard!
She has come out of her cocoon of frustration and confusion!
We’ve watched her spread her wings. She is now flying!”
When deaf children learn to hear, listen and speak, they emerge like butterflies from the cocoon of their silent world and fly off into the colourful world of sound.
Your support of the Butterfly Appeal will help to give deaf children the lifelong gifts of sound and speech!
Beautiful butterfly brooches, mini bling biros, butterfly charm bracelets, wristbands and keytags will be available for sale at all KFC outlets in Queensland, Hear and Say Centres and other selected outlets during the appeal.
Buy a butterfly and help give deaf children a voice!
Simply buy a butterfly from KFC or Hear and Say or help even more by taking a Butterfly Box to work, home, school or your club and ask family, friends and work colleagues to help too!
Come out, little butterfly
Deaf children remind me of butterflies:
At first encased within a cocoon of deep silence not of their making,
and then when sound and cadences of love reach them,
they emerge in all their individual colours of soft or brilliant hue!
