For as long as I can remember, my mother has been raising money for the Association pour la Langue Française Parlée Complétée. It’s an association that offers LPC (French Cued Speech) classes to deaf and hearing people. Cued Speech is a very important tool for deaf children to learn how to speak, read and write. It’s very different from Sign Language but just as important.
Another important organization is Caron, which provides care and treatment to people struggling with addiction, I have met many people who were saved through their scholarship program.
