Help me buy new hearing aids

I am deaf, have 95% of hearing loss, and have to buy new hearing aids every 5 years. With your contribution I can reach the goal more easily.
urgent

I grew up on the outskirts of Tumbaco, when it was still a small town with its own traditions. In the morning I went to school with huge green spaces, trees, and I really enjoyed the library. All morning it was sunny. I was returning to the house for lunch and the downpour was falling.

My house had its own garden and green space too, but downstairs it was not closed, but connected to the neighbor's land. Natural wasteland, without garbage or anything. Field. As a child I enjoyed a lot there. As a teenager I already felt far from my friends.

This was when the Internet arrived on rainy afternoons in the countryside far from the city, at the end of the 90s. The cell phone had arrived before the telephone line. We wanted to ask for a second line to occupy one with the Internet and talk on the other, but it never came.

If as a child books helped me connect with the world (I'm deaf), then the Internet helped me connect with friends. Hotmail and MSN Messenger used the majority. But neither then nor today did I spend in chats. The Internet itself seemed very interesting to me to work on.

I had a book (I still have it out there) of 'The Empire Strikes Back' by Donald F. Glut. I told a friend to upload it to the Internet and sell it. I would transcribe, he would broadcast it. With the slowest connection in the world, we already dreamed of pirates. Today I'm laughing because I didn't even transcribe the first chapter.

With Geocities I made my first website. With Hi5 I connected with people from Colombia to Norway. The advantage of having good English. Facebook arrived and the celebrities in Hi5 put as a publication: “On Facebook”. Despite all this, my days were always sunny.

Today I go for a walk with the dogs in the sun every day. And I always prefer in-person conversations. The chats, forums, etc., are just to hang out. I distance myself from the digital world, I use it at my convenience and I observe it. There is a lot of evil, it is not worth living there.

Hacker tools are getting more and more sophisticated. That is why it is convenient to heal circles and block. Don't make enemies online. On the other hand, there are a lot of facilities provided by the Internet. In particular: saving time. Your time is your most important asset.

One of the most important skills at work, for example, is not hiring people, it's firing them. There is always someone who climbs on top of you and settles down. I wish I had learned that earlier, but I know now. If you are wise, you will learn from the mistakes of others. heal circles.

I know what the Internet is for you. That's why I tell this story. Make your website with me. Start next year with a plane taking off with its face towards the sun. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Destination page / Landing page

A landing page invites your reader to a reading and viewing that is at the same time an experience and a promise.

An appreciation experience, where you meet how will it be treated (meaning it will feel great) and by whom (A person committed to his clients and whose work speaks for itself).

A promise of very detailed benefits and, more importantly, who you will become thanks to the sum of all things.

That is to say, thanks to working with you, hiring your service or buying your product, this person will be someone:

  • Happy.
  • Done.
  • Relieved.
  • Better person.
  • With a higher status.
  • That helps others.
  • entertaining.
  • Part of something new or different.
  • Another person.
