Here is a gift that feels good to give and to receive. It’s Seedlings’ Holiday tribute cards. For each $10 donation, you will receive an elegant card to give to the special people on your list, and you will enable us to make another braille book for a blind child! The cards say:

A book will be inscribed in your name!

To date, we have received over $1500 from GoodSearch and GoodShop, thanks to our kind supporters who have used this website to help raise funds for Seedlings. It doesn’t cost you a thing and it only takes a couple of quick clicks! Here’s how it works:
Let’s say that you want to shop online at amazon.com or one of the thousands of vendors that have online shopping sites. First go to http://www.goodshop.com and sign up, indicating that you want to raise funds for Seedlings Braille Books for Children.
Then in the search box, type the name of the store you want to visit. GoodShop will list some coupons that you may use on that site. Over on the right, you will see the percentage that will be donated to Seedlings. Next to that, click “Shop Now” … and you’re off and running … or rather, shopping!
The percentages vary from .5% to 15%, and it may not seem like much, but every little bit helps … and it adds up, so please use GoodShop every time you shop online!
You can also sign up for GoodDining which will enable you to raise funds for Seedlings when you eat out or get carry-out!
As always, every $10 we receive makes another braille book possible … and every braille book carries with it the marvelous gift of reading! Thank you so much for all of your help and support!
