United States based website Wonderbaby.org and Perkins recently teamed up the UK’s very own RNIB to send one SMART Brailler out to six children across the United Kingdom to try out! Each family will host the brailler in their home for two weeks so they can play with it and find out if it’s right for them and their child. When the two weeks are up they’ll send it off to the next family.
During this tour children Ronan, Lily-Grace, Leo, Fynnley, Anna, Lennie were each visited by the Smart Brailler and the families of the children documented their child’s experiences with the machine: Click here to find out more about the impact the Braille machine had on each of the six families!
Once the Brailler had completed its journey people were invited to cast votes on who would win the Smart Brailler Machine as a permanent fixture in their household! Following the vote Lily-Grace, daughter of Kristy Hooper won the machine!
Mummy Kristy is now on a one woman campaign to get all the children in the running for the Brailler their very own and has set up PROJECT BRAILLER on crowdfunder.
They hope to raise £5000 to be able to find a machine for each of the children involved in the competition and Kristy needs your help! So far she has raised £4,175 of the £5000 required and she needs more backers to help such a worth cause! This amount needs to be raised by 10.35am on the 4th March or else the project will not go ahead!
So dig deep people and lets get these children the essential machine that they need!
