The Big Feb Fundraiser for Hearing Dogs

Choose a fun challenge to do at any point during February that involves the number 28 and raise money to help deaf people leave loneliness behind. Do 28 sit-ups a day. Bake and sell 28 cakes. Run 28 miles. Or do a 28-hour sponsored silence. The choice is yours!

How it works

  1. Choose a challenge to start at any point during February that involves the number 28!
  2. Sign up and download your free fundraising pack, full of helpful advice and fun challenge ideas.
  3. Set up your fundraising page and get started! Tell your friends, family and social media contacts that you’re doing The 28 Challenge and ask them if they'd like to sponsor you.

By doing The 28 Challenge, you will be directly helping deaf people. People like Sarah…

Sarah and Albert.jpg

My hearing dog Albert has totally changed my life. I used to feel so isolated and had very little confidence and independence. My whole life is different now that I have my four-legged hero. He doesn’t just alert me to sounds, he’s my best friend and is always by my side. That is why I am also going to be doing The 28 Challenge – to help other deaf people get a hearing dog like Albert, and help transform their lives like Albert transformed mine.


Please take part in The 28 Challenge and help more deaf people like Sarah to leave loneliness behind.
