Dear Colleagues:

This is Parnell Diggs, Chairman of the National 
Federation of the Blind Imagination Fund.  On 
June 22 at 8:00 PM EDT, I will appear on a 
special broadcast of "Thruoureyes" with Joe 
Ruffalo to talk about the Imagination Fund and 
the men and women across the nation who are 
working so hard to raise funds for the programs 
of the National Federation of the Blind.

During the show, Joe and I will be announcing the 
individuals who will be invited to ride in the 
Blind Driver Challenge™ car in Orlando on the 
afternoon of Tuesday, July 5.  To be considered 
for selection, you must raise at least $1000 in 
the Imagination Fund campaign by June 15 and 
register for the National Convention.  Details 
about how to tune-in to "Thruoureyes" are coming soon.

The top ten Imaginators will be invited 
automatically.  The remaining participants will 
be selected in a drawing from among those who 
raise at least $1000 by June 15.  For many of 
you, the $1000 mark is within sight.  In fact, 
even if you have not started yet, there is still 
plenty of time.  I observe that Angela Frederick 
of Texas raised over $1000 within seventy-two 
hours in May, and she is not finished.

But a ride in the Blind Driver Challenge™ car is 
not the only incentive to raise $1000.  We will 
read aloud the names of those who raise $1000 at 
the National Convention; and of course, there is 
the medallion, which will be awarded to anyone 
who raises $1000 by the end of the campaign on 
July 31.  Ultimately, we will all benefit from 
supporting the programs of the National 
Federation of the Blind.  Our future is up to you and me.

Come on, Fellow Federationists, let's race!
