Braille Holiday Cards

Since the late 1950s, Hadley Woman's Board has been offering a braille holiday card, making this sale one of the longest running fundraisers of its kind. Braille holiday cards make unique gifts and support Hadley's mission to create personalized learning opportunities that empower people to thrive at home, at work and in their communities.

In the Hadley tradition, the Holiday Card carries the interior greeting "Wishing you peace, happiness and the spirit of the season" in both print and braille. A mixed-media collage in hues of green, cream, red and cocoa depict a winter pine tree composed of vintage-patterned papers, as snowflakes fall from the sky. For a tactile effect, the tree is embossed, and, hidden in the snowflakes near top of the card, the word "Peace" appears in embossed braille. The card background features a subtle vintage newspaper pattern — heralding Hadley's rich history.

This year's artwork was created by mixed-media artist Jennifer James, an award-winning artist and designer who joined Hadley's communications department in 2014. Jennifer is honored to support Hadley's mission to empower people living with visual impairment. See more of her work at www.jenniferjamesmixedmedia.com

Braille holiday cards are packaged 25 per set, envelopes included, for $35.
