Fellow Federationists,

We are nearing the end of another action-packed 
Meet the Blind Month campaign. This year members 
from over twenty affiliates worked to change what 
it means to be blind by hosting literature 
tables, making presentations to students, and 
finding new and innovative ways to share our positive message about blindness!

As we draw to a close, I have a few reminders to 
share. If you have not yet done so, please be 
sure to send a description of your event(s) to me 
at <mailto:mbaugh at nfb.org>mbaugh at nfb.org. You may 
also share your events over the phone by calling 
the Jernigan Institute at (410) 659 9314, 
extension 2371. You can also access our event 
submission form on the 
<http://www.nfb.org/meet-blind-month>Meet the 
Blind Month homepage. If you are unsure if your 
event has been submitted, please visit the 
the Blind Month Event Calendar to find your events.

All events must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. 
tomorrow November 1 in order to qualify for one 
or both of this year’s challenges. For more 
information on the challenges, please visit the 
<http://www.nfb.org/meet-blind-month>Meet the Blind Month homepage.

Also, if you have pictures, videos, or news 
pieces about your event, please send those to 
<mailto:mbaugh at nfb.org>mbaugh at nfb.org as well. We 
will be posting pictures and videos from various 
events on the web page and we want to make sure 
as many chapters and affiliates are represented as possible.

Finally, remember that Meet the Blind Month isn't 
over yet! Today is Halloween­when those trick or 
treaters stop by, take a moment to share your 
positive philosophy on blindness. Braille 
alphabet cards made a great addition to any treat 
bag! And, if you’re a last minute candy 
purchaser, consider buying Skittles, M&Ms, or 
Smarties that children can use to create their names in Braille!

Thanks to everyone who has participated in this 
year’s Meet the Blind Month campaign! You really 
are changing what it means to be blind!

Kind Regards,


Mika Baugh
