It is that time of year again when I usually prepare for the Wesstchester Rockland Walk4Hearing. I love being a part of this walk becasue it allows me to be part of a community and to raise funds to help. But obviously this year is different.
We are all sheltering in place. We have all been touched by loss. The economy is perilous for millions. And everyone is wearing a mask. Yes the masks are crucial in the defense against COVID. But it also means that I (and millions like me) cannot see your face or read your lips when you speak. This means that I probably wont really know everything you are saying and I might not as easily be able to pick up the clues I need to fill in the conversation.
You know me and you know that I have always been able to compensate and not only survive, but thrive. But it is not always easy and most of the time it is exhausting. So I am asking you to help support me in this virtual walk. There are so many in need and so many worthy causes, and I know money is tight. So, I am asking you to make a small donation to this one. If you could give $25 it would mean so much to me an to people like me.
