The Gift of Gab, Inc.
Though it's something most people take for granted, the ability to communicate with others, whether verbally or nonverbally, is so essential to getting through the day. And as Erin Harty began studying and practicing speech pathology, she was introduced to countless individuals who were unable to communicate, and worse yet, unable to afford the therapy or technology they needed to do so.
So she started The Gift of Gab, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to connecting people with the resources they need. Recipients of Erin's work have included those with hearing loss, children with severe apraxia, and adults who have suffered traumatic brain injury and voice disorders. In addition to year-round donation acceptance, Gift of Gab sponsors fundraising projects such as the Gobble Gobble 5K at Thanksgiving and the Awareness Challenge, a social-media campaign where donors post fun lip-sync videos.
