Bespoke Braille Bookmarks

My LEAP for Vision

I'm fundraising for LEAP Program

I'm fundraising for LEAP Program

I am taking the LEAP

Hi, my name is Kiara Risnes. I am a student in Yr 11.

I am participating in a program called LEAP which is helping me develop the skills and confidence I need for future employment. 

As part of this program we need to conduct a fundraiser and I have chosen to create and sell personalised braille bookmarks. Braille is important to me as it is my way of accessing information. It is a form of writing that people don't get to experience much and I want to change that. By ordering one of my personalised bookmarks, I get to share a bit of Braille with you. The bookmarks are  $10 each.

Through my fundraiser I hope to raise money to support Vision Australia and the LEAP program.

If you are interested in buying one of these bespoke braille bookmarks and supporting my fundraiser, please send me an email with the name you want me to braille on it -limited to one name per bookmark. Please also include the address I should send it to. (The design of the bookmark will be randomly selected unless otherwise specified) Payments can be made via the “donate” button. My email address is 

Please DONATE if you can!

Thanks so much for your support.
