Iowa Pocket Pledge
How many of us have memorized the NFB Pledge? How many of us still
stumble through the pledge? Oh, don't raise your hands.
I am pleased to announce that the National Federation of the Blind of
Iowa will have available at our affiliate table at the NFB convention
in Detroit a small plastic card, developed by our own Sarah
Cranston, containing the NFB Pledge. Because we are celebrating the
200th anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille, and because we are
totally committed to the Braille literacy program of the National
Federation of the Blind, the pledge appears in Braille and can be
carried in your pocket, your purse, your note taker case, or wherever
you like. Oh, and did I say they are free?
The pledge cards are free and can be picked up at our table in the
Exhibit Hall. Oh, and while you're at our table, please avail
yourselves of the opportunity to pick up one or several pairs of our
famous Iowa stainless-steel folding scissors, which are $5 a
pair. You always need a pair of good scissors, and they make
excellent stocking-stuffers at Christmas time.
See you in Detroit. Oh, and don't forget to register for the March
For Independence. I've already raised $700.
Michael D. Barber, president
National Federation of the Blind of Iowa
