Read With Feeling Events

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!

Sponsored by Lesnau Printing

"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.
