“It’s a Deaf Thing” to Host Third Annual Deaf Expo in October 2019

February 12, 2019

I received an email request from Terry Hunt, deaf business owner, volunteer, and committee chair for the Florida-based nonprofit, It’s a Deaf Thing, asking me to promote the nonprofit’s 2019 expo on my blog.

Happy to do so, Terry.

It’s a Deaf Thing describes itself as “a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization (registered in 2015; EIN 47-2187874; principal officers: David and Bobbi Lind) that is hosted and managed by ProjectDEAF (official name of nonprofit). We are a deaf expo that is located in Lakeland, FL. It’s a Deaf Thing bring the deaf community and deaf people together. Our primary language is American Sign Language.”

The organization’s primary mission “is to support and empower the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. [Plan] Deaf Expo to help expose the Deaf-Owned Business, Deaf-Friendly Business, and Deaf-Related Business, also to bring the Deaf community together and awareness of the Deaf community.”
