Does Santa Know Braille? Of Course!
Because sometimes, “it takes more than seeing to believe.” (BrailleWorks USA)
Each year, Paths to Literacy provides information from various organizations that support braille literacy through programs that provide braille letters from Santa Claus. Braille Works is one of those programs—but be sure to contact them before December 6, 2021 in order to receive a letter before Christmas!
Braille Works is one of the nation’s leading providers of reading materials for people who are blind, visually impaired, or reading impaired—and they are also Santa’s special helpers! During the Christmas season, they help him by embossing his letters back to kids. They even postmark them as shipped from the North Pole! The Santa Reads Braille program from Braille Works will update their website with sample letters on October 1, 2021, and they will begin taking submissions for braille letters from Santa on Monday, November 8th. The last day to request a letter is Monday, December 6th!
The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) also typically offers braille Santa letters each year, but they had not yet announced their dates for 2021 when this issue of TX SenseAbilities was ready for publication.
