Like we even needed another reason to love Elton John!
It turns out that the singer has been handing out hearing aids to needy children and adults while in the Philippines! The charity mission is a part of the Starkey Hearing Foundation in Manila to personally help fit more than 400 of the devices, allowing many to hear for the first time in their life!
Here’s what the founder of the foundation said:
“We are working to create peace and understanding around the world through the gift of hearing, and it is not possible without all the efforts of our friends and partners. We are so honoured to have the support of Sir Elton John and David Furnish and that they would take the time to help us deliver this precious gift.”
Can you think of a better way to spend the holidays??
This trip was only one of 70 international missions annually to fulfill a commitment to provide more than 100,000 hearing aids to people in need each year!
