I want to welcome all of you that have clicked over from Lime & Violet and from Ravelry. I thank you for your contributions to RFB&D.

Here’s a comment from a RFB&D member that was left on the blog today:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post “Contest Time”:

RFB&D is a great organization. I am totally blind and was a computer science and applied math major in college. To say that I wouldn’t have been able to make it through school without RFB&D would be an understatement. I also used them throughout high school to obtain textbooks, rather than getting them in braille. I owe much of my success to them; today I am a supervisor of a group of computer engineers at the Pentagon in Washington. Back then I might not have realized how important the audio books were, but today I am certainly very greatful to them and their excellent and caring staff who make such a difference to people every day.

As of today, we have raised $315 for RFB&D.

Here is how your generous gift will help RFB&D members:

$57 Enables RFB&D to master, duplicate and ship one accessible textbook to a member

$145 Pays to distribute the average number of accessible textbooks that a student needs for one course

$580 Pays for the average number of accessible textbooks that a college student needs for one semester

$2096 Covers the cost of recording a new digital textbook for our CV Starr Learning Through Listening® Library

We are 1/2 way to paying for textbooks for a college student for one semester. There is still plenty of time to donate and be entered into the contest.

Thank you again and good luck in the contest.

Happy Knitting!
