Dear Educational Professional,

National Braille Press and Seedlings Braille Books for Children have produced attractive Braille Book Bags for distribution to families of young blind children, at no cost to you or to the families.

In order to receive these free Braille Book Bags, we need you to:

  1. Identify the numbers of blind children who are potential braille readers (birth through age seven - sorry, no exceptions!) and their families in your area. There are three age-appropriate book bags (0-3, 4-5, 6-7). We need to know how many you need in each age group (English vs. Spanish);
  2. Check with potential recipients to ensure that they have not already received a book bag, as we distribute directly to parents and through multiple organizations and can provide only one bag per child, per lifetime;
  3. Personally deliver the book bags or be willing to give us a mailing address for identified families;
  4. Encourage parents to fill out and return the coupon on the inside of the book bag to receive a second free print/braille book or playing cards;
  5. Encourage parents to write to us about their experiences using the bag and its materials.

The success of this program depends on you. As a program subsidized with foundation support, we need to assess whether these bags achieve our identified goals. As professionals in the field who work with these families every day and are aware of their needs and concerns, your experiences, comments, and suggestions are invaluable to us as we refine this project.

Please print, sign and fax (617-437-0456) one copy of this letter as your agreement to participate. If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact Customer Service by phone at 800-548-7323 ext 520 (in Canada: 617-266-6160 ext 520), or via email at orders@nbp.org.
