Three Free Braille Books for Children

Great news! Every blind or visually impaired child (ages 0-21) in the U.S. and Canada may now get 3 FREE books from Seedlings Braille Books for Children!
Seedlings has expanded its Book Angel Program for 2016!
The program was originally called “Anna’s Book Angel Project” in memory of our Director’s 19-year-old daughter who was killed by a drunk driver in 2001.
Each year, every blind child registered received 1 free book in Anna’s name, but thanks to Seedlings’ generous donors, that number is now 3!
Just click here to register your child or student.
