Buy an NFB Groupon July 11-18 to Support Braille Literacy through the 
Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) programs

The <http://www.nfb.org/>National Federation of the Blind, the 
nation's leading advocate for Braille literacy, and Groupon 
Grassroots, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, are teaming up to bring 
Braille into the lives of more blind children who need it.

The NFB Groupon will be available on 
<http://www.groupon.com/baltimore/all>the Groupon page beginning on 
July 11, and running through July 18.  Groupon subscribers can pledge 
support for NFB BELL programs in increments of $15, with each 
purchase helping to provide one bag of Braille supplies to a blind 
child participating in the BELL program.

The BELL program is a two-week intensive Braille program for all 
blind children. It incorporates learning centers as well as group 
lessons and blindness skills. Children participate in recess, explore 
physical activities, and prepare their own lunches. At the end of the 
program, each child receives a BELL bag that contains a gift 
certificate for a Braille book, a slate and stylus, and other items 
based on each individual program. Every $15 Groupon purchase will 
fund a BELL bag!

To participate in the Braille literacy effort, visit our unique 
Groupon page. It can be found at 

You must be a Groupon subscriber to purchase a Groupon.  If you are 
not currently a Groupon subscriber and would like to become one in 
order to purchase a National Federation of the Blind Groupon, you may
