William F. Austin founded Starkey Hearing Foundation in 1984 with the premise: "Alone we can't do much, but together we can change the world." At this year's Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting, he reported on the So the World May Hear Commitment to Action: to give one million people hearing aids this decade to restore the gift of hearing, and to make a difference in people's lives in new ways:

Our reward is in the faces and smiles of each person as we help them hear again. We truly live through what we give. Starkey Hearing Foundation's national programs and global missions add up to something larger: a movement that enables the world to hear, one by one and community by community. A movement that teaches. And one that believes hearing is the answer to many of the world's most intractable problems: isolation, poverty, and illiteracy.
