A look back at 2022

“Celebrate endings—for they precede new beginnings.”

—Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Happy 2023! As we look forward to the spring weather and the beauty that it brings, let us take a look back at some of our 2022 highlights:

· Producing a record 37,695 books that were sent to children with vision loss – a 7% increase over 2021!

· Giving away 23,879 of those books – a record amount, which is 63% of the total.

· Offering more than 750 titles in Unified English Braille (UEB), and all of our titles are now $20 OR LESS! Seedlings continues to be a leader in UEB among braille publishers.

· We had our largest Online Auction ever – outdoing our largest auction total from last year – thanks to our generous sponsors, donors and supporters! Together, we raised more than $51,500 to provide over 5,100 braille books to children with vision loss!

Inspired by you and the precious children we serve, we couldn’t have done any of these amazing things without your support and generosity! We look forward to providing our braille book readers with so much more in 2023.

Seedlings Spotlight

Luca, is a 6-year-old Seedlings reader! Read this quote from him about his journey to read braille.

"Hello, my name is Luca! I am 6 years old and have been learning to read. I love finding braille on the pages of my books and when my mommy reads to me while I follow along!”

Happy reading, Luca!
