Michelle Tjelmeland of Springfield, Illinois is profoundly deaf, but you’d never know it by looking at the 32-year-old Web designer and mother of two daughters. With the exception of a headset-like device behind her left ear, Tjelmeland exhibits no signs of her disability. The device, which transmits to an actual computer chip in her brain called a cochlear implant, miraculously restored her hearing. If you ask her about the device, she’ll proudly pull it off and tell you all about cochlear implants – in fact, she wants to tell the whole world.

To create awareness about this life-changing technology, Tjelmeland wears a vibrant green, black and white wristband with the phrase “From Silence to Sound” on it. Produced by the Cochlear Implant Awareness Foundation, a non-profit foundation that Tjelmeland started in 2005, these CIAF awareness wristbands serve as a reminder that hearing is a gift. Thanks to the miracle of cochlear implants, more children and adults are experiencing life in a new way. CIAF strives to create awareness about the use of cochlear implants as an aid in hearing loss; raise grant money for families affected by hearing loss; and eventually lobby the legislature to change laws regarding insurance coverage for cochlear implants.

The awareness bracelets were inspired by Tjelmeland’s daughter, Ellie, who was born profoundly deaf and who also received a cochlear implant as a toddler. Among Ellie’s prized possessions are her 63 colorful wristbands, which she wears all the way up to her 7-year-old elbows.

Case sponsorships will allow CIAF to distribute wristbands to medical centers around the country to cochlear implant patients and their families

Additional wristbands are being sold to the public in sets of 10, 100 or 1,000 at a cost of $3 per wristband. The wristbands are available in children and adult sizes. All proceeds from wristband sales will support awareness activities and family grants.

The ‘White Band’ campaign was formally launched in Nepal amidst a function organised to mark the third `White Band day against poverty’ at Patan Museum, Patan Durbar Square on Saturday.

Chief guest Shalil Shetty, director of the UN Millennium Campaign, launched the White Band by putting it on the wrist of pop singer Lochan Rijal, who was recognized as the White Band Goodwill Ambassador of the Youth MDG Campaign in Nepal.

Addressing the function, Shalil Shetty emphasized the need for young people to be actively involved in the millennium campaign to realize the MDG’s (Millennium Development Goals) by 2015. Sharing his experience, Shetty said young people can help governments better reflect their ideas and aspirations in their plans and strategies to achieve the MDGs.

Basudev Neupane, an activist with the Global Campaign Against Poverty, shared his inspiration on how youths could bring about positive change in the society. He further added that Nepal being the country of young people should lead the campaign and incorporate stakeholders from all sections of the society to make it a success.

Singer Lochan Rijal said now he had added responsibility with him as the Goodwill Ambassador of the White Band Campaign. He said he would spread the message across the country through his songs and music.

Wall Street and St. Jude Children Research Hospital had their 16th annual “Taste of New York” on Nov. 15 where six hundred Wall Street top executives participated in a silent auction in support of the brain tumor research program. One of the many party favors was wristbands of course, which donned “Wall Street Loves the St. Jude Kids.”

“The wristbands are a popular item these days and our committee thought this would be an idea that everyone would love and it would also spread the word about St. Jude,” said Beth Desai, Associate Director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Over the past 16 years the “Taste of New York” night has raised close to 23 million for and this year raised more than $1.5 million for children suffering from cancer and other catastrophic illnesses.

“This year the money went to furthering research in a brain tumor program we have at St. Jude’s,” Desai said.

More than 600 top executives from 80 firms joined together to make this year’s event a tremendous success.

“The wristbands were great, they looked good and were a perfect party favor for the event,” said Desai.

In a thank you letter to Wall Street, St. Jude patient Katelyn Atwell, a patient of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, put it best when she said, “I know y’all are big on futures, well I can’t think of a better place to secure the future of kids.”
