A couple weeks ago, I visited the headquarters of a new social enterprise that I’m very glad to let the world know about.
A Deaf-run business, Deaf Can! Coffee. I bought a delicious strawberry smoothie:
“Deaf Can!” is a reference to a popular phrase in Deaf culture: “Deaf can do anything except hear!” And the word “can” when, translated into English, of course, is a pun on the idea of a coffee can. Clever don’t you think?
I could go on, but why not let the video I made with the manager and another Deaf youth do the talking? (Don’t worry, it has captions!)
Thanks, Carlyle, for your efforts to empower the Deaf of this country!
