Support our Campaign to Assemble Print-Braille
STEM Children’s Book:

For more than 25 years, People Making a Difference (PMD) volunteers have been carefully assembling special print-Braille books that enable blind and sighted children and adults to read together. We are looking forward to our next project.

Project Details: Sunday, October 30th, 2022 from 9:30AM-12:00PM, and 1:00PM-3:30PM
in Boston, MA.

About the book: We are sponsoring Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean’s Most Fearless Scientist written by Jess Keating and illustrated by Marta Álvarez Miguéns, plus collating and checking its printed paper and plastic, Braille-embossed pages on 10/30/2022. Shark Lady is a children’s STEM picture book about Eugenie Clark, an American woman who “dared to dive, defy, discover, and inspire” in her quest to show that sharks are beautiful, not mindless monsters, and that women can be scientists.

How You Can Help: Donations and hands-on assistance from our volunteers will enable readers to purchase these print-Braille books for the same cost as the printed version. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500.

Every little bit helps.



Note: Designate your donation as “Shark Lady”
