An Post kindly sponsored the Accessible Santa cards every year. If you have any children in your area that would like to receive an accessible Santa card, please send their letters to: Santa Claus, C/O NCBI Library and Media Centre, Unit 29 Finglas Business Centre, Jamestown Road, Finglas, Dublin 11 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday the 18th December.
Each child will receive a beautiful card with large print and a lovely decoration to be cut out, coloured in and placed on the Christmas tree. A Braille insert will be sent to children who are Braille readers, with a CD for those who prefer to listen to Santa’s response, along with an embossed image of a Christmas tree decoration.
Pictured here is Alannah and Kian posting their Santa letters. Eight year old Alannah Moriarty from Dublin loves Braille. She loves posting her letter to Santa and thinks “it is the best thing about the year.” Kian Fahey is five and is from Co. Galway. He loves reading and is learning Braille. He wrote to Santa asking for a Blaze fire engine for Christmas. He says that popping his Santa letter into the An Post letterbox “was so exciting, I was so happy.”
