Thanks to you, the National Federation of the Blind has had a tremendous impact on the lives of blind people of all ages-and maybe your family has benefitted from our advocacy and philosophy. Please help continue our work<https://www.nfb.org/donate> by participating in #GivingTuesday, which is coming up December 3.
All gifts make a difference and your support makes the Federation stronger. I want to share a few recent examples of the impact that NFB programs and our network of mentors have had on the lives of blind people:
One of our scholarship recipients wrote:
"One of the things that I think about as I study education is the value and importance of mentorship and learning from others. I have tremendous mentors in the National Federation of the Blind, tremendous people who push the expectations higher every day. I want to give that knowledge to those that I can help most."
A teen who attended NFB EQ for the first time said:
"I would like to thank you for the NFB EQ program. I learned so much about engineering, and how to make it accessible as well as so many other things about being a person with a visual impairment. After attending the NFB EQ program I became fascinated with how tactile tools allow the blind to access the competitive field of engineering and decided that what I learned should be shared with others."
An NFB BELL(r) Academy parent and donor said:
"I could go on and on about what an impact BELL has had in our family's lives, but I will leave it as, 'the impact is huge.' I wanted to let parents that are new to this journey know that this wonderful opportunity existed and help with funding to keep the program going with a low cost to the families. Every little bit helps, right?"
Help us continue to share the gifts of confidence, literacy, education, independence, and so much more. Contribute on #GivingTuesday by:
