> You helped us win $2,250 in Vibe Credit Union's Facebook contest!
>    Seedlings took first place in Vibe Credit Union's Facebook charity contest, winning the top prize of $2,250!
>    Thank you to all who voted for us!
>    We will use the money to start a new program that will place braille books into the hands of those who need them the most: children ages 0-5 with vision loss.
>    Children who are blind are at a disadvantage when learning to read. By the time sighted children enter kindergarten, they have seen millions of letters and words. Print is everywhere they look!
>    But blind children find braille almost exclusively in braille books, which continue to be rare and typically expensive. The average blind child may have only 5 braille books for every 100 print books a sighted child has. Some have none at all!
>    Every $10 allows us to place another braille book into the hands of a child! Thanks to Vibe and thanks to you, we will be able to give 225 books to kids who need them the most!
> Meet piano prodigy Avett Maness & his mom at Seedlings on Oct. 14!
>    Avett Ray Maness, 7, the blind piano prodigy from Ohio whose rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody and other songs on YouTube has made him a viral sensation, and his mom, Sara Moore, will be the special guests at Seedlings' birthday celebration 5-7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14!
>    Avett, who appeared on American Idol, will perform, and his mom will autograph copies of her book, Cotton Candy Clouds!
>    Moore wrote the book to describe clouds to Avett, who cannot see them. Avett is the little rabbit in the story wearing round glasses.
>    Mark your calendars! The open house will be held at Seedlings' office, 14151 Farmington Road, Livonia, MI.
> Needed: prize donations for online auction
>    Seedlings is seeking prize donations for its fourth annual online auction Nov. 1-14, 2019.
