Hey Change Nation! We are back with our series featuring the ‘Best of SCN’! This series is focused on taking you back to some of our early days in podcasting and sharing the inspiring and challenging stories of our early entrepreneurs! This week we are featuring Bridget Hilton, an entrepreneur who is literally helping our world to hear every day! The passion she brings to the table fuels her business for social good, LSTN Headphones!
Bridget Hilton, got her inspiration for LSTN Headphones after watching a viral YouTube video of a woman hearing her own voice for the first time. She knew then that she wanted to help give the gift of hearing to the hearing impaired and created LSTN to achieve that mission. Headphones were a natural fit for her social enterprise because Bridget had worked in the Music Industry since she was 15 and believed in the power of music to change lives. LSTN Headphones offer top quality acoustics and an incredibly unique design featuring a sustainable wood casing. For each pair sold, LSTN donates gives the gift of hearing to one of the 360 million people worldwide who are hearing impaired. Bridget shares many tips and tricks of how she has grown her social enterprise to impact over 15,000 patients in under 2 years. Listen in to find out more about Bridget and how LSTN is changing the world through music. Pick up your own headphones and listen to the next Voices of Social Change podcast with a pair from LSTN that looks good, sounds good, and does good.
