One million names in braille
One million names in braille is a dream of that blind woman Julie Woods to transcribe into braille the names of one million people she comes into contact with.
In 2012, after having the reverse side of her business card printed with the braille alphabet, Julie began writing in braille the names of people she came in contact with.
Julie and her husband Ron Esplin then set themselves a goal to visit the Seven Wonders of the World.It was while travelling overseas that Julie began writing the names of their guides in braille, when one day a young porter in an Indian Hotel burst into tears and said “Words cannot describe how I am feeling right now.”
So that got Julie to thinking…… why don’t I transcribe the first name of one million people into braille….. to connect the world with dots.
Julie set about chasing her dream when, on the day she had been blind for 20 years, she wrote 1
million names in braille on a small piece of paper, in the code itself and popped it in a jar in her office.
So she’s off…..
And thank you for helping her.
If you know anyone who would like to be part of Julie’s dream and have their names transcribed into braille then email names to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a coach, Julie believes that when you set crazy goals crazy things can happen
“If people don’t laugh at you when you share your dreams, then you’re not dreaming big enough!”
