HIKE is a very special endowment fund, created in 1986 by Job's Daughters International to provide hearing and/or
assistive listening devices to children in need - Kids
Helping Kids. Job's Daughters International is an organization
for young women between the ages of ten and twenty who are related to a
Children under the age of twenty who have been identified as
1) having a need for a hearing aid or an assistive listening device and
2) having a financial need can benefit from HIKE. Applicants with a
documented hearing loss are considered without regard to sex, race,
religion, color, or creed. Each application is weighed on its own merit, and
the application requires a letter from the applicant's family which is an
important part of the application. Considerations include family income,
size of household, burdensome medical expenses for the applicant, and the
cost of the hearing technology requested.
Funds raised for HIKE are collected almost entirely by young
women across the United States who are members of Job's Daughters - there
are no salaried fund raisers! With the guidance of their adult workers,
Job's Daughters seek pledges for "hikes," sell baked goods,
participate in rock-a-thons, sponsor dinners, and develop many other
creative fund-raising ideas to support the work of the HIKE Fund.
