Every year, we at NBP all look forward to putting together the new Valentine’s Day card. Starting in October, we pass witty puns around the Publications department until we find one that hits our collective funny bone, and then we spring into action to turn our concept into a finished card that is available in time for the holiday.
This year’s card features a character many of us have come to love: an exuberant crayon who exclaims, “For crayon out loud, happy Valentine’s Day!” Why do we love this excitable crayon character so much? Well, who can forget meeting all of the hilarious and opinionated crayons in the popular books The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home?
One of the reasons we enjoy making the yearly Valentine’s Day card is that we each fondly remember giving and receiving these cards at school, and providing these cards is a perfect expression of our primary mission of parity. We believe that blind children should be able to experience and share in Valentine’s fun just as we did and just as their classmates do.
Hear what children’s book author Shea Gibson has to say about our Valentine’s Day cards:
“I’ve purchased Valentine’s Day cards from NBP for several years. I think it’s important to support organizations that exist for, and make efforts to, assist individuals whom may be visually impaired, like my 12-year old daughter Marie.
These cards are family-appropriate, creative, and are not only in print but pre-brailled for visually impaired individuals — allowing them to join in and enjoy the same nuances as a non-impaired person. Having the braille pre-marked on the cards is also a great help for teachers and other organizers whom are facilitating a card exchange for their school-aged children, both sighted and visually impaired.
NBP is a wonderful company and a great investment in my daughter’s future for the vast resources they can provide including something simple like a Valentine’s Day card.”
