“Bridging for Braille”

Register now at   http://www.nfbcal.org/nfbc/walk09.html

Be a part of the first “Whozit walks the bridge for Braille”.  This event 
will bring together the largest group  in the most unusual location with the 
most influential people in California who are concerned about the “Braille 
Literacy Crisis”.  We are celebrating the 200th birthday of Louis Braille, 
the inventor of the code which has made it possible for blind people to read 
and write.


Meet Whozit at “Vista Point” on the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Anyone who cares about education.  90% of blind children in America are not 
being given the opportunity to learn Braille.  Braille is a tactile reading 
code which makes it possible for those who are blind to have an education, 
or training, or live independently in their communities.

We need your help!
