A new day for Raphael

For a number of reasons, it hasn't been easy for Raphael's parents to get hearing aids for their 8 year-old son. But, we're happy to report, Variety was able to secure him a pair in just a couple weeks. 

We couldn't do that without our generous supporters. So, as you go about what's just another day for you, realize you've made today the first day of better hearing for Raphael.

Oh, and while it'll take him some time to get used to his new hearing aids, he's thrilled they came in Spiderman colors.
