THE STORY:

National Braille Press, Inc. wrote -

Team National Braille Press runs thousands of miles in preparation for April 15, where they will run 26.2 miles; from Hopkinton to Boston!  Why? To give the gift of literacy to blind children and adults.  Imagine if the only way you could learn was through listening; never being able to see how a word is spelled, where punctuation goes, sharing the experience of reading a story, or being able to write your thoughts down.

National Braille Press believes that reading is not a privilege, but  a right.  I am raising money so that NBP can produce children’s books like Curious GeorgeDiary of A Wimpy Kid in Braille with tactile graphics; bank statements, restaurant menus, college textbooks, and high school science and math books. 

Your support will give the gift of literacy to thousands of blind children and adults.  Thank you for believing that every blind child and adult should learn to read and write!
