The deadline for this project is January 31,
so there is time to be very
creative.Â There is a need for videos, pictures
to go with the stories. YOU can do it!!!
DYNAMISM OF NFB
Dynamism is defined as something that has
âenergy and a strong desire to make something happenâ;
now, who does that sound like? YOU!
As a member of the National Federation of the
Blind, you want to make a difference! Have you
encountered a situation where you, as a blind
person, were misunderstood or criticized for your
ideas because someone thought you couldnât do
something? What actions did you take to change
that situation? Are you creative in how you
maintain your independence? Do you have a funny
story of how you accomplished something? Are you a parent of a Blind child?
Share your unique story through writing, videos and pictures!
The Communications Committee, in collaboration
with the Writerâs Division, the Public
Relations Committee, and the Social Media
Committee is seeking stories along with videos
and pictures, which reflect the NFB
philosophy. These stories may be selected and
highlighted in the Braille Monitor, on
Facebook/Twitter or in a Kernel book. Stories
are being compiled into a book to celebrate NFBâs 75th Anniversary!
Have you used the white cane for other tasks
instead of mobility? For example, do you play
pool with it? Talk about the unique ways you
clean the house, cook, wash the car, garden, and
play games or sports. Do you like to
bowl? Share a video of getting that strike! Do
you like to work with your hands; such as,
construction, mechanics or knitting? Do you like
to fish, hunt or play golf? Share how you
accomplish your activities at home, in the community or on the job.
The Inquiring minds of the world want to know what the blind can do!
For samples of the stories that we are looking
for, read the April issue of the Braille Monitor.
Unlimited submissions of stories, pictures and videos can be submitted to

is in the picture. Videos can be downloaded free
