“Once I knew only darkness and stillness…my life was without past or future…but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.”
Helen Keller lived 1880 to 1968. She was an American author, political activist and lecturer, and the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Anne Sullivan, her teacher, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing Helen to blossom as she learned to communicate.
Acknowledge outstanding contributions
At the cost of $1000, the plaque is a great way to formally acknowledge such work at the same time as contributing much-needed funds to help us train more dogs for the deaf and hearing impaired.
Applying for a plaque is simple. Fill out the form, provide your donation, and we will send you a personalised plaque within 6 weeks. You can also call us and place an order over the phone.
The plaque is A4 size. It is a brass plate on a bevelled-edge timber backing with wall mountings. We recommend the plaque is hung inside or under cover outside.
The images are laser etched onto the plaque with words of your choice. Other logos may be added. Each plaque is numbered and, with your consent, we publish a short description of each Fellowship on this website.
When you apply for a Fellowship, please ensure we have the correct spelling and wording (particularly with telephone orders). Plaques will be despatched by mail so allow time for delivery.
