Wow, Leslie, that is way cool!
I'll try to take a minute to vote since we have loved everything that we
have purchased from you. We fly out on Wednesday. House gets emptier by the
hour. Poor kitties. I'm sure they are freeking out about how their house is

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 years.)
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!
