Help Deaf Community in your area?

    
This is for help Deaf Community in your area in any states. Its VERY important for your Deaf Community in your area needs!
      
Deaf and Hard of Hearing who live in states asked me and email say: "Wally, You are lucky you have so much great in the Deaf Community in Memphis!" and "I wish I have a website in my area for the Deaf Community or events but how??"
   
My answer -
  • You can do that yourself or with your partner.
  • You can create a website for your Deaf Community in your area.
  • You can setup Deaf Community and Deaf events in your area.
  • You will see grow Deaf Community in your area for fun events!
  
Let me explain shortly but I can't explain deep because its depending on what you needs in the area. Here is simply --
  
If you wanted a website - go to http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/hosting/shared.asp?isc=cjchst001b
 
Setup your own domain. Example: If you live in Little Rock, Arkansas then like look this LittleRockDeafCommunity.com (or org, net, etc. depending which do you like and vary price) then create a page for your community to start spread out about your area Deaf Community. If you don't know how to setup then you need to call GoDaddy Tech Support how to setup for your Deaf Community. They will be glad to help you with your domain and Web Hosting to setup in your website or page to start with but Tech Support cannot create for your page because they are not support "create" for you. Or you may use Yahoo had an offer for free page but understand limited space. My website MemphisDeafCommunity.org is so huge space, that's why I have to use GoDaddy because its a good size space. Either you like other domain company lists as like GoDaddy.com but I suggest for you to use above link GoDaddy better for your website and GoDaddy is very cheapest price!
 
What if you say "I don't have many deaf here in my area?"... Do not worry. You can send out in your eNewsletter and ask them to come for the events then be patient for a while in about a few months or so then they will grow and grow in Deaf Community. Same we do MDC. In first time MDC in 2005 was very small Deaf people then now grow 900 readers MDC eNewsletter. But not all Deaf/HOH. Some of hearing people who are interested to go Deaf Community which of them who work for Interpreters, Deaf Services, organization, etc., etc.. Be patient.
  
If you asked me "I don't see many Deaf around here" -- Go to www.DeafVP.com to find your area in a state or Tri-states to find email and vp there on the lists. Ask them if they are interest to join Deaf Community in your area. Its simply. And can be www.DeafConnect.com but most of them oldest emails so I use www.DeafVP.com are the best!
  
How can I add Deaf Events in the area?
  
  • You may add Deaf Chat Coffee at Starbucks in  your area. Ask www.DeafCoffee.com add a link in your area. That's help.
  • You may ask Interpreter Service to add info about your Deaf Community.
  • You may ask your friends mouth-to-mouth "sign-to-sign" to help spread the words about your Deaf Community area.
  • Setup Silent Dinner in the Mall.
  • Setup Deaf meeting for events.
  • Deaf school may interest.
  • Deaf Sports in your area.
  • VR might help for your Community.
  • Any Deaf organizations may be help.
  • Deaf church
  • Sign Classes
  • And much more!!
  
If you need money for a website. Try ask Deaf community in your area for a donate to help for website fees. Same MDC do. .... Or if you cannot afford to pay for domain, Web Hosting and fees then you can go to http://www.orgsites.com/ for free page your own. But I read there and myself I think its for Organization but try email to them to see if they accepted for Community who are not Organization.

  

If you plans to setup Deaf Community in your area from us please let me know then I will add Deaf USA Community lists here below.
  
New Deaf Community area in Tennessee for an example:
  • www.MemphisDeafCommunity.org

  • ChattanoogaDeafCommunity.com
  • BristolDeafCommunity.com
  • UnionDeafCommunity.com
  • KnoxvilleDeafCommunity.com

  • LawrenceDeafCommunity.com
  • WinchesterDeafCommunity.com
  • ColumbiaDeafCommunity.com
  • ClarkvilleDeafCommunity.com

Same just like in Mississippi and Arkansas

Good luck in your Deaf Community! :)
