From the mailbag:
The National Federation of the Blind has believed for almost seventy-five
years that blind people can live the lives they want. We believe that with
the love of our members, the hope that comes from the exposure to our
philosophy by way of our chapters, and the determination to educate and
advocate for our future, we can make our dreams reality.
The National Federation of the Blind Community Service Division believes
that by becoming active contributors in our local communities, we show that
the blind have capacity and worth and can live the lives they want. Is your
chapter involved in some sort of service project? What are you doing? How is
it benefitting the community? How are your sighted friends and neighbors
coming to know the abilities the members of your chapter possess? Weâd love
to post your stories to our blog at nfbcommunityservice.wordpress.com.
The specifics: Send your story as an attachment or in the body of a message
to me at Christineemail@example.com. Stories should be no more than 500
words. Be sure to include your name, state, and a title for your story. I
look forward to reading about what awesome service projects your chapters
have been a part of!
