Braille House empowers people who are blind or have low vision to be literate and to be able to read whatever they want. These tiny dots support them to live independently, attain their desired level of education, increase their chances for employment and enable them to interact with communities just like everyone else.
This campaign is running nationally, and Braille House hopes to get the message to people who can help them to produce more Braille. The end of the financial year is a time of year where many businesses and individuals are looking to donate because of a potential tax deduction. This works when an amount of $2 or more is donated to an eligible non-profit organisation, such as Braille House.
One volunteer said: “My friends and I love to read; I couldn’t imagine what it would be like for people who are blind or have low vision not to have braille. They would miss out on so much of the joy that reading can offer.”
