Beginning in the month of October, the Imagination Fund is initiating
a new component in our continuing fundraising efforts. By now, many
of you have registered for the 2010/2011 Race for Independence, which
will culminate at our 2011 convention in Orlando. You are already
lining up your asks and building strategies to achieve your
fundraising goal of $250.00 or more.
Beginning in the month of October individuals can make $10.00
donations to the Imagination Fund through the text-to-give program by
texting the word "blind" to 85944. Each time you text the word
"blind" to 85944, you will receive a message that tells you to reply
with the word "yes". When you do this, your cell phone carrier will
forward $10.00 to the Imagination Fund. The $10.00 charge will
appear on your next phone bill.
In the near future State Presidents will be receiving business cards
and brochures related to the text-to-give program. Ask your State
President to share these materials with you and help us to distribute
business cards and brochures to every community across the country.
Take cards and brochures along with you to community events,
meetings, restaurants, sporting venues, and everywhere else you go,
and distribute them liberally. Our goal is to generate a high volume
of text donations nationwide. Text-to-give donations do not count
toward individual fundraising goals, but they will help increase the
size of the Imagination Fund and substantially increase affiliate
distributions and grant awards at the end of the campaign.
For more information contact us at 410-659-9314 ext. 2371, or email
Anne- Marie Laney at <mailto:alaney at nfb.org>alaney at nfb.org .
You can also reach me directly in Myrtle Beach, SC at 843-492-7411.
The text-to-give initiative will be a great way to supplement our
Imagination Fund effort and help us to raise more money in this
campaign than ever before. So come on, let's race!
