Canton residents can share the while helping Massachusetts students who are blind by sending Perkins School for the Blind holiday cards to family and friends.
The Watertown-based school is offering eight different cards, each with colorful artwork celebrating the winter season, created by youngsters who attend Perkins. All the student artists are blind, and some have other disabilities such as deafness.
Money raised by the sale of holiday cards will fund Perkins programs and services that help infants, children and adults who are blind, deafblind or visually impaired.
The cards feature vibrant scenes that capture the joy of the New England holiday season, including a singing snowman, a wintery forest and snowflakes.
The cards are sold in packs of 10 for $10. Each 7" x 5" card is printed in color on heavy, coated stock. Blank white envelopes are included. For an additional fee, cards can be customized with personal messages, including a company logo. Volume discounts are available.
