Who needs even more presents anyway?
If you have a special occasion coming up, asking for donations instead of gifts is an inspiring way for family and friends to mark the event whilst also helping preschool deaf children learn to listen and talk.
The best wedding present I ever bought. Thank you for helping beautiful Jonathan.
This is the perfect alternative gift for any celebration you have in mind - baby shower, birthday, wedding / civil partnership, anniversary or retirement.
Or you could decide to call a Christmas present amnesty amongst family and friends and make donations instead.
