Mission: Seedlings Braille Books for Children was founded in 1984 by Debra Bonde because braille materials for children were scarce and expensive. Her goals were to increase the availability and lower the cost of braille books for children in order to promote their literacy skills and the love of reading. Seedlings' ongoing goal is to increase the rate of braille literacy by ensuring blind children access to many of the the same books that their sighted peers enjoy. By making popular children's books available and affordable in braille, Seedlings offers visually impaired children equal opportunity to develop their literacy skills, and the tools to become lifelong readers and literate adults.

I am a librarian at a school who was in search of non-contracted Braille books for a student. I was able to put in a request for a student to recieve two free braille (non-contracted) through Seedling's Book Angel Program. Non-contracted braille books are hard to find and I am thrilled that this student now has some books that he can read and call his own. These books mean so much to this student! I would highly recommend this organization. I am very appreciative of their services!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching a beautiful smile form on a students face because they are able to read for enjoyment on their level.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make any changes. Seedlings is a great organization that needs more support and resources to provide more book titles in Braille than what they currently offer.
