Foundation for Blind Children is the first place new parents turn to after learning their baby is blind.  They teach children to reach their highest potential – giving hope and inspiration to parents by challenging, supporting and celebrating the progress their kids make.  These students climb mountains, go to college, go to work and succeed.  Nothing is impossible at Foundation for Blind Children.  

You can get the card at thecarecard.org Happy holiday shopping !
