. February 29, 2020.

Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), the nation’s leading nonprofit organization representing people with hearing loss, has partnered with American Girl to honor the company’s 2020 Girl of the Year, Joss Kendrick, to increase education and awareness of hearing loss. Joss— a fierce athlete with a passion for surfing and competitive cheering, who has hearing loss and wears hearing aids— joins American Girl’s lineup of inspirational characters, showing girls the importance of trying new things, pushing past stereotypes and being a good team player. American Girl is also supporting the organization’s 2020 Walk4Hearing with a donation of Joss dolls, as well as collecting donations for HLAA at americangirl.com and at American Girl stores nationwide.
