Dear all,

                 When the National Association of guide dog Users 
(NAGDU, a strong and proud division of the National Federation of the 
blind, launched the NAGDU Guide & Service Dog Information & Advocacy 
mobile app on September 17, 2014, our goal was to have the app 
downloaded at least 1000 times by the end of 2014. It was an 
ambitious goal; however, the NFB is known for its ambition to ensure 
every blind person has the opportunity to live the life we want! We 
are pleased and excited to announce that we have not only met our 
goal, but exceeded it!

                 As of midnight on December 31, 2014, the NAGDU app 
has been downloaded by 1,039 users. And we are not finished! The app 
is continuing to be downloaded, demonstrating the value of the 
information we are providing to guide and service dog users, as well 
as to the general public. We are working to enhance the app with new 
features suggested by our users, including location tracking, sharing 
options, more streamlined access to the information, guidance for 
other industries, and an Android version.

                 If you or someone you know has not yet downloaded 
the app, please help us continue our progress by going to the App 
Store, searching for "NAGDU", and downloading this incredible free 
app. Doing so will help the National Association of Guide dog Users 
improve the app and enhance the other work we do on behalf of guide 
dog users. Once you download the app, please browse through the 
information and send us your feedback. You can do this directly from 
the app by using the "send an email" feature. We look forward to 
hearing from you and working with you to raze the expectation of the 
blind in the United States so we can live the lives we want!

Fraternally yours,

Marion Gwizdala, President
