About Seedlings Braille Books for Children
Seedlings Braille Books for Children was founded in 1984 by Debra Bonde of Livonia, who wanted to make braille books more affordable for blind children. Even back then, braille books often cost more than $100 each! With money raised at fund-raisers, and through grants and donations, Seedlings is able to distribute high-quality children’s literature to children in Michigan, the United States and in 75 countries at an average price of only $10 per book. And, Seedlings gives away half of its books for free. For more information, visit www.seedlings.org.
