Imagine how important Braille is to so many people. Did you know that more than 7 million people in the US, and more than 1 million in Canada, have significant vision loss impacting their ability to perform normal activities. That’s a lot of people! Many of these people rely on Braille materials to enhance their lives, including reading a newspaper or magazine article, enjoying classic books, writing letters and taking notes, and reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. Blind folks listen to audio books as well. But Braille materials and audio books offer only a small segment of what’s available to the rest of us.

This also happens to be Louis Braille’s birth month. He was revolutionary, impacting so many people’s lives positively.

Here’s a place those of you reading this blog post can go to learn more about Braille, and especially to volunteer, make a donation, or find out what’s available to the blind.

Blind people don’t need to be left out, and thanks to Louis Braille, they won’t be.

  1. You always find the most interesting holidays to promote, Trish! I had no idea it was National Braille month. I truly appreciate the gift of sight as the most important of all the senses–at least to me it is. Kudos to Mr. Braille for his phenomenal system!
