Santa Reads Braille

Letters from Santa Claus in Braille


Because sometimes, “it takes more than seeing to believe.”

Santa’s Braille Workshop will open November 15th for
Santa Reads Braille 2019.
See you then!

We’re Santa’s special helpers.

Does Santa read braille? Of course, he does! And we help him out at this busy time of year by embossing his letters back to kids.

Parents, teachers, and friends: Just let us know who the letter is for and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll even postmark it shipped from the North Pole! Read more about the letter we’ve embossed from Santa, as we’ve made his words more accessible to those with visual impairments by converting it to braille and by including a large print copy.

Why letters from Santa?

We want to be on his Good List, of course! It’s also an opportunity for us to do something special for kids at Christmas. If you have kids of your own, you already know Christmas is magical and everyone deserves to feel it. We’d love to shatter the notion that only ‘seeing is believing’ and help bring to life the idea that every child deserves a letter from Santa Claus. Everyone can feel the spirit of Christmas and sometimes, it takes more than seeing to believe.

Here at Braille Works we also understand the fun side of Christmas. Santa and his elves; flying reindeer; stockings hung by the chimney and a host of other traditions. These are wondrous things that bring smiles and laughter to children around the world. In fulfilling our mission toward Making the World a More Readable Place™, we are honored to bring “Santa Reads Braille” to children who are blind or visually impaired.

A letter from Santa brings a little more of that Christmas wonder to your child. At the same time, a letter in braille is a great way to encourage them to develop their braille reading skills.

We would love to hear from you and send your child a braille letter from Santa. We are asking that only families who have a child who is blind or visually impaired take part. Teachers of students who read braille are also encouraged to submit requests.

“The best things in life cannot be seen or even touched,
they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

This is part of who we are.

Another reason we want to do this is that we see this as a way for us to express God’s love to you and to your child in a tangible way.

Luke 2:10-11 “And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’”

Thank you for taking part in Santa Reads Braille and have a blessed Christmas Season.
