Hello again :) I'm back for a special post today since Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring a special young girl, Cassandra, who is deaf. She is our friend Barbara's 11-year-old daughter, a little girl who attends public school and has asked for real-time captioning (RTC). RTC is where a captionist will type up what is spoken in class and display it on a tablet so she can read information that she has missed. Without it, she struggles every day and has to guess at the meaning of half-words and sentences. Anyone can imagine how vital it is for her to get RTC... it's so obvious... and yet, it is a fight to get it, which is quite unbelievable :(
So today's event at Little Miss Muffet Stamps is to raise awareness and help spread the word. You can read more of Cassandra's story HERE and sign the petition HERE if you would like to help. For each signature, the school administrators receive an email about the RTC request.
To support this petition, Little Miss Muffet Stamps has released a dozen new images to play with. Plus there is a freebie in the store for everyone to join in! We'd love to see what you create... but more importantly, we hope you can sign the petition and help us spread the word!
Here is my make for this special cause, using the lovely Polka Dot Pals Amelia which seemed the perfect choice to me :)
Images and stamps: Little Miss Muffet Amelia, Penny Black and CC Designs stamps
