Calling All Federation Members!

We are contacting you on behalf of the Communications Committee which 
is collaborating with several other groups:  Social Media, Public 
Relations, Braille Monitor and others, to encourage the NFB members 
to WRITE!  To tell their stories.

We hope you saw the announcement that was sent during the months of 
May and June announcing the Dynamism of NFB.  If you haven't seen it, 
it is below for you to review and share.

As part of the Communications subcommittee volunteering to contact 
the president/chair of each State/Affiliate, Division, Committee and 
Chapter, our goal is to answer any questions that you might have and 
to give our personal contract information.

Is there a convenient time for one of us to call you?  Do you have 
preferred phone number?  If the number is listed on the website; we 
apologize; could you verify the number for us?

Dynamism is defined as something that has

"energy and a strong desire to make something happen";

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 couldn't 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 Writer's 
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

NFB's 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.
