This is Parnell Diggs, chairman of the National
Federation of the Blind Imagination
Fund. Hundreds of us are preparing to converge
upon the Daytona International Speedway to
witness the historic Blind Driver Challenge on January 29, 2011.
Now is the time to gear-up for the 2011 Race for
Independence. Over the next few days, the
programs of the National Federation of the Blind
will generate hundreds of millions of audience
impressions, and our work will be highlighted in
communities across America and around the world.
Register for the 2011 Race for Independence by
There, you can sign up to be an Imaginator, set
your fundraising goal, and make your asks in what
may be the biggest and best Imagination Fund campaign yet.
You can also register by calling the National
Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute at
(410) 659-9314, extension 2419. Whether you
conduct your campaign online, through the mail,
or in person, we have the tools you need to
guarantee success with just a little effort.
In fact, some Imaginators have already reached
and surpassed their fundraising goals, and it's
only January. How did they do it? The secret
to success lies in two key actions: registering and making the ask.
If you plan to be in Daytona Beach, Washington
D.C., both, or neither, you need to be registered
for the Race for Independence. This is your
opportunity to help us capitalize on the enormous
publicity, goodwill, and enthusiasm about the
programs of the National Federation of the Blind over the next few days.
Fellow Federationists, please join me in building
the Imagination Fund and supporting Braille
literacy, quality education, access to
technology, employment opportunities for blind
adults, programs for seniors and more. Come
on: sign up today, and let's race!
