Hello everyone,

Some of you on here - especially those whose kids are around my older son, 
Ethan's age - know that I'm not only an advocate, I'm a braille jewelry 
designer. (One of the first, in fact, having been in business for more than 10 

I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by sending this out here, but wanted 
everyone in the blindness community to know my braille alphabet bracelet 
("braille fashion cheat-sheet") has been nominated for the Cooper-Hewitt Museum 
People's Design Award. The Cooper-Hewitt is in NYC and is part of the 
Smithsonian system.

I would appreciate the votes of any and all who value the design of that 
bracelet as a unique way of promoting the importance of braille literacy. It 
looks like I have a good shot here (there are only two other designs that have 
garnered more Facebook, Sharethis and e-mail traffic) though of course, no one 
knows how many votes any of the nominated designs has garnered!

If you'd like to look at all of the designs there, and hopefully, vote for the 
braille alphabet bracelet, their link is:

I'd really appreciate your support and your votes!

-- Sincere best,
