A "Hands On" Braille Awareness Program
and Community Service Project for students in the Detroit metro area!

"Kids helping kids" makes this program exciting and unique. Students organize a community service fundraising project and Seedlings will present a fun, hands-on program about braille.

By supporting a service project, your students will be making a difference for blind children and developing a pattern of generosity that will follow them throughout their lives!

Contact Seedlings at or call 734-427-8552 for more information.

"Bowl Where You Are"

If you like to bowl, please consider bowling to support braille book production! Seedlings' annual bowl-a-thon to support braille literacy has been our major fund-raiser for over 20 years! In 1998, a "Bowl Where You Are" option was added so that supporters across the country could participate! "Bowl Where You Are" has become so popular that we are making it a year round event! Individuals or groups are invited to bowl anywhere and anytime in the name of braille literacy to support Seedlings Braille Books for Children.

Simply call us toll-free at 800-777-8552 and we'll send you instructions and a pledge sheet. When your pledges are collected and sent in, you'll be eligible for prizes! Every $10 raised subsidizes another braille book! Call today for details.
