 From Michelle Chacon, NFB Bid for Equality Chairperson

Greetings Fellow Federationists:

The Bid for Equality team is sending out a shout of 
encouragement.  Get your packages in to the National Office 
(attention Raquel Minwell) by October 31, 2014.  We want to have time 
to get our wonderful packages organized and ready to present for our 
second annual online auction.  Contact your local hotels and 
entertainment venues and ask them to donate to our effort.  We raised 
over $10,000 last year.  Let's try and exceed that amount with our 
fabulous auction items.

Please remember to fill out the online form before sending in your packages.

In this email I have also included the following two documents:

1. The National auction letter- This is the template donation letter 
you can use to help you solicit donations from local businesses. It 
has our tax ID, contact info, info about the NFB etc..

2. Package details guide- This is a letter to the affiliates to help 
guide them in the direction of creating a desirable package. It 
includes info on what we are looking for (and what we cannot accept), 
examples of rock star packages from last year, stats on what kind of 
packages did well etc.. It also includes some logistical info as 
well. By this I am referring to things to keep in mind when acquiring 
packages and how to submit your materials.

Please note that we are looking to receive completed packages. We ask 
that you collect all aspects of your package and send them to us at 
one time rather than piece by piece.

Our team will be calling everyone in the next couple of days to see 
if you have any further questions regarding the process.

Thank you, Federation Family, for everything you do to help our 
organization be a success!
Kindest regards,

Michelle Chacon
