Sir Elton John - Elton John Hands Out Hearing Aids In Manila

Sir Elton John handed out hearing aids to needy children and adults in the Philippines last week (begs10Dec12) during a charity mission.

The I'm Still Standing hitmaker and his partner David Furnish joined the Starkey Hearing Foundation in Manila to personally help fit more than 400 of the devices, allowing many to hear for the first time in their life.

John has been an avid supporter of the organisation for many years and has previously headlined the charity's annual So The World May Hear Awards Gala.

Bill Austin, Founder of the Starkey Hearing Foundation, says, "We are working to create peace and understanding around the world through the gift of hearing, and it is not possible without all the efforts of our friends and partners. We are so honoured to have the support of Sir Elton John and David Furnish and that they would take the time to help us deliver this precious gift."

The Starkey Hearing Foundation conducts approximately 70 international missions annually to fulfil a commitment to provide more than 100,000 hearing aids to people in need each year.

Why on earth is there out of the game of rules? i have accumulated many points, I love the game. I have not gone to anyone, not touched anyone, been to see a Beatle, I love that! I love Paul McCartney, who doesn't? we all do.! thats awesome! to see him! I lost my backpack, I'm sorry, its got to be a world of peace you're right, we all have the world of peace that love one another, love thy neighbour, so why on earth is there not? crying bucket of tears for Jack no I don't know the children of connecticut, but I cannot for the life of me, understand how anything whats happening in our world is going on with the violence towards woman/child, I am woman/child. not allowed. I have a turkey, I am buying 36.99, blueberry pie 12.99 I have to pay for it/keeping to the calls to my daughter/son, she' phoned and asked me one question, do you have remedy for earache. ? elton, she's alright!! she remembers me now. elton, she's really remembering me, I 'm so happy, I sent her like I do at times, $20 for xmas.I am repaying Andy too 52.00 I sent I have to, I wanted to let you know, I haven't been immoral or anything like that, I am surprised that people are being deaf! maybe they should move, I didn't know the world has undeveloped circumstances.I know how you may think of me, but I'm the Elson from Sundown, I thought if you could make an concert in Kelowna or vAncouver would it be around summertime august?I 'll have money then, the turkey sounds so nice! fi have someone, I called Anddrew fi too, and erased it why? so if y ou're happy being with someone, let me, know. never know, I have walked on that slippery ice, its not safe on the highways, people are driving off of them. I'm only dieting, meaning eating less, I thought I would challenge you mr. sir elton john, the prince of England ( I watched your story of your grandfather dieing beside you a King. ) wow ! I thought I read history and know for certain that he was a King, your side of family. so please let Elton john know. if I thoughtof sending him a message of suggestion of dieting, if you can diet to look like the old self of the past, being youthful, thinner, everybody mostly is, maybe its all that sugar we eat that makes us so fat, chubby, or too much exercise building muscles, but I dont' know, I'm a mother on earth and I know for certain that T. God has me for my children not them. so let peace on earth find motyher mary. its not their world. they're all unfaithful.! take care, I wonder what you'll say, My Brenda Lee songs as my dad called me Brenda Lee, I sure do, and I enjoy the past writings of my sundown cowgirl home. I don't know what to do, except wait for my kids. time is running out, I have to lose the weight,I'm walking home with a cane. I fell off my bicycle in the snow, remember not to trust everything in life. God knows it. the dazzling xmas tree is very huge in town, vancouver grow up so big its awesomely big. wow! 15 years old there that time. so take care, have a nice xmas. take care. love elson
