Give a gift this holiday season in support of braille literacy. National Braille Press is offering braille themed gifts for men and women alike. Celebrate braille with a Vineyard Vines men’s necktie and Ohm Silver Braille Beads. Proceeds from the two gifts will help provide braille reading and educational materials to blind children.
“NBP is very excited to offer these amazing gifts this holiday season,” said Brian MacDonald, President of National Braille Press. “By buying the Vineyard Vines tie and braille charm you are supporting National Braille Press and our work in promoting braille literacy.”
The Vineyard Vines tie is blue with white dots that spell “NBP” in braille in a diagonal pattern interspersed with pink dots. The proceeds from the tie will support the Children’s Braille Book Club in honor of its 30th Anniversary. National Braille Press’ Children’s Braille Book Club was the first Braille Book Club in the country that featured a new print/braille book each month for children ranging from preschool through third grade. NBP selects popular children’s picture books that can be read by both braille and sighted readers.
National Braille Press’ Ohm Silver Braille Beads are created with stunning craftsmanship and feature braille characters on each of the three charms, letting you create any six-dot braille symbol. The beads are interchangeable with popular style bead bracelets such as Zable, Pandora, Troll and Sim Stars.
The guiding purposes of National Braille Press are to promote the literacy of blind children through braille and to provide access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs.
