Email Message Concerning 2012 Fund Raiser
Subject: Win a K-NFB Reader Mobile!
Merriam-Websters Word of the Day
for Tuesday, June 26, 2012 is desideratum
(pronounced dih-sid-uh-RAH-tum) meaning
something desired as essential. Through the
generosity of The Michael Hingson Group and K-NFB
Reading Technologies, the National Association of
Guide Dog Users (NAGDU), a strong & proud
division of the National Federation of the Blind,
is excited to offer the desideratum of a K-NFB
Reader as its 2012 technology raffle! The K-NFB
Reader Mobile runs on a fully functional cell
phone that allows the user to read receipts,
hand-outs, restaurant menus, and many other
printed materials wherever the person happens to
be. It is truly a pocket-sized solution to
reading on the go! The K-NFB Reader Mobile is
designed for use by either the totally blind or
those with low vision. The phone will come fully
loaded with Talks Screen Reading software which
makes the phone features entirely accessible. The
retail value of this technology package is $1770!
Tickets for the NAGDU technology
raffle may be purchased at table 22 in the
exhibit hall or prior to the NAGDU meetings for
$2 each or 3 for $5. Details about the NAGDU meetings are included below.
Back by popular demand are our dog
treats. With the cooperation of central Pet
Distributors and Green Pet Supplies of Dallas,
this year we will feature Natural Balance Healthy
Bones all natural dog treats. We will have
chicken, turkey, and lamb treats in 8 oz.
resealable bags for $6each or two for $10. We
always sell out of these treats by the end of
convention, so get yours while supplies last!
