Today's Welcome Wednesday is a Facebook Page called "The Flipside" which features short and funny clips about life as a Deaf person and ASL.
Whenever I see a new video from him in my Newsfeed, I know I'm going to have a good laugh. I hope you check him out!
Today's Welcome is Wawa - you might know him as his alter-ego I posted a while back: Cuzzin Willard.
He has been performing since childhood and has and does nearly everything in the entertainment world, plus traveled the globe for the past dozen years.
He has a new DIP-HOP (Deaf hip-hop) album coming out soon!! Go and support this cool guy!
This Wednesday's Welcome is Everyday ASL Productions. A company co-founded by two Deaf people.
If you ever want to learn sign language, improve on it, or get some ASL inspired products, please check out their website!
Also if you do decide to purchase something, please put my name in the "Notes" box before your check out "Tracy Stine" (A lady's gotta work y'know).
Today's Welcome Wednesday is Nyle DiMarco and his Foundation. Y'all pretty much know who Nyle is, if you don't then you've been living under a rock Heh.
He established a foundation to improve the lives of Deaf children and their families:
"The Foundation aims to improve access to accurate, research-based information about early language acquisition–specifically, the bilingual education approach. Through the early intervention process, the child’s language and literacy development should be the focal point."
If you're a parent, grandparent, or relative of a Deaf child, I encourage you to visit the site and read up on everything to help that Deaf child flourish.

Mountain Crafted is a family owned and operated company. They're situated between the Appalachian and Smoky Mountains in North East Tennessee.
They create all natural candles, shampoos, and other fragrance products they make themselves in their home.
This is a unique company, not just because of the unique products, but because the owners are both blind, he from an accident and she from RP, but they don’t let it get in their way. The engraving on Barry’s business card holder--a gift from Debra—aptly says: “Limitations are self-imposed.”
Go check them out! They'll also gladly label everything in Braille upon request.
Today's Welcome Wednesday is Mozzeria Pizza in San Francisco.
Mozzeria offers an unique dining experience. They have a huge wood burning pizza oven in the center of the restaurant and you get to watch your pizza being made.
Mozzeria's menu also includes pastas and dishes with fresh ingredients from farmers markets, a wine bar, local beers on tap, vintage sodas and desserts.
Now why am I listing this? The owners and most of the employees are Deaf. Customers communicate in ASL, pointing to menu items, or writing on paper.
Go and check them out!
