The lovely Emlyn Chand, President of Novel Publicity posted a share on Facebook about Seedling Braille Books. I clicked the link and went to her post on Novel Publicity.
“Every child deserves the company of a good book, but for some, that company is hard to find. The truth of the matter is, braille books are expensive and difficult to attain, especially for families with limited means.”
Every child deserves the joy that comes from reading, and your vote could help earn Seedlings $25,000 to continue their vital mission! Seedlings Braille Books for Children is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high quality, low-cost braille books for blind children in Michigan and around the world. Seedings could win a $25,000 grant in the 2012 Art Van Charity Challenge! It’s new this year and only one vote per email address. Go to the Art Van site by 5/31 and vote!

When Seedlings was started in 1984 by Director, Debra Bonde, braille materials were scarce and expensive. Her goals were to increase the availability and lower the cost of braille books for children in order to promote their literacy skills and the love of reading.
