The history of Braille Cards Dot Com began with a meeting between two friends; one sighted and one blind. My blind friend, Bob Varney, wanted to provide greeting cards that were available in Braille. I wanted to be able to send my friend an accessible card that he could read without the assistance of a reader. On March 4, 2000, this idea started with a domain, and quickly turned into braillecards.com. I've always admired Bob's independent way of living and his strong-willed determination to succeed. He is the inspiration behind the creation of BrailleCards.Com.
