Butterfly Beats - Interesting facts:

Why Butterflies?

They are beautiful, admired and communicate through the wonder of nature.
Deafness Foundation adopted the butterfly as its logo following the initiative and enthusiasm of Judy Chancellor, a member of the President’s Auxiliary. To her, the butterfly was a beautiful and powerful symbol of change that could raise awareness in the community about deafness and hearing loss and also provide fundraising income for the Foundation.
Judy set about designing a series of butterfly badges to be worn in a lapel or on a hat.
Thus began the very successful
Butterfly Badge Appeal.
The sale of Butterfly merchandise remains to this day the major source of fundraising income that supports the Foundation’s financial grants program.
The Foundation is very grateful to Judy for her vision, passion and enormous dedication to the success of the Butterfly Badge Appeal.
