Pleas help a blind entrepreneur expand her Braille jewelry business

I’m working on behalf of Laura Legendary, a small business owner who has launched a crowd funding campaign. She has designed a line of jewelry and accessories embossed in Braille, and I thought you might like to check it out. Her campaign page link is: As a personal note, I have contributed to this campaign, and I would like to encourage you to
support an entrepreneur who is blind, as I have done.. If making a direct contribution is not an option, then please like and share this message with your friends and colleagues. To read her personal testimony, please visit . Your help is most appreciated. Let’s make it happen before the campaign closes on April 10th.
