Get Your Braille and Large Print Letters from Santa: 2019

November 30, 2019 9:11:30 AM EST

December is just about here and Santa’s workshop is gearing up for their annual deluge of letters to Santa from children all over the world. Children anxiously await Christmas, with their excitement building as the day approaches. Carols, lights, and decorations surround us, and perhaps a snowfall or two will create a perfect scenery, maybe even a white Christmas. Receiving a letter from Santa adds to the joy and anticipation of the children. Fortunately, once again Santa is on top of his accessibility game, excluding no child, and prepared to send out letters to children in Braille and large print.

Organizations from around the world have teamed up again this year with Santa’s elves in sending out Braille letters from Santa. You can request using the list of organizations below. They’ve got a direct line to Santa and the North Pole — but act fast!
