Supporting Deaf-Owned Businesses: A Guide to Holiday Shopping

December 1, 2023
December 1, 2023

The holidays are almost here, and it’s not just about finding the perfect gifts – it’s also a chance to do something really important. We can make a big difference by supporting businesses run by Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in our community. These businesses have lots of wonderful things to offer, showing how creative and talented the Deaf community is. When we choose to buy from them, we help make the holidays more friendly and diverse for everyone. Let’s celebrate the spirit of giving by picking special gifts that also make our community stronger and happier.
