Dear Colleagues:

This is Parnell Diggs, Chairman of the National 
Federation of the Blind Imagination Fund.  By the 
time you receive this, we will be just 
twenty-four hours, give or take, from the 
all-important assessment of who has raise $1000 
by June 15.  Anyone who has raised $1000 will be 
included in the pool from which we will select 
invitees to participate in the Blind Driver 
Challenge™ demonstrations at the National 
Federation of the Blind Convention in Orlando.

To those who have already raised $1000, I say 
thank you.  Others are very close and will get 
there with just one more "ask".  Some 
Federationists have raised hundreds of dollars 
within hours during this campaign, and you can 
too.  We will announce the names of the $1000 
Imaginators on June 22 during a special broadcast 
of "ThruOurEyes" with Joe Ruffalo beginning at 8:00 PM EDT.

Then, we will select the thirty individuals who 
will be invited to ride in the famed Blind Driver 
Challenge™ car.  The top ten Imaginators 
nationally in terms of money raised will be 
invited automatically, which will leave space for 
twenty additional Imaginators, who will be 
selected from a drawing.  There is only one way 
to be in the selection pool; get your $1000 
raised by June 15.  If you are conducting a 
mail-in campaign, postmarks by June 15 are fine.

In closing, and to avoid any confusion, let me 
point out that the Imagination Fund campaign will 
continue through July 31.  No matter how much you 
have raised by the end of the day on June 15, it 
is certainly acceptable to keep right on 
fundraising if you are inclined to do so.  We are 
ending qualifying for the Blind Driver Challenge™ 
demonstrations on June 15 so that we can select 
participants and finalize plans for the afternoon of July 5.

Other incentives for this year's Imaginators will 
be announced very soon.  In the meantime, please 
keep imagining and help us to fund the movement that we love.  Thank you.
