Subject: Only Six Days Left to Guarantee Delivery!
The holiday season is upon us-a time when we turn our focus, more than any other part of the year, to giving. This year, give a gift that really counts-a future full of opportunity for a blind child!
Today far too many blind children and adults in America are being refused Braille instruction by both schools and rehabilitation agencies, and many who are receiving a Braille education are given inadequate instruction. There is a way you can help.
When you purchase the Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar, not only will you receive the first U.S. coin to feature readable, tactile Braille, but $10 from the sale of each coin will also go to the National Federation of the Blind's efforts to end this Braille literacy crisis. That's a gift anyone would be proud to give.
But time is running out! You have just a few days left to purchase this exceptional coin and leave your mark on this crisis. Visit the U.S. Mint's Web site<http://www.marchforindependence.org/site/R?i=V_aFt_Xg72OJecIkl-G5ew..> or www.braille.org<http://www.marchforindependence.org/site/R?i=K4CHP3tbGR6SPGqPP7bIcQ..>, or call 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468) by December 11, 2009, to give the gift of Braille literacy today. The United States Mint guarantees delivery by December 25, 2009, on any in-stock item, anywhere in the United States on orders placed by December 7, 2009, for standard delivery, and December 11, 2009, for express delivery. Orders over $300 will receive free expedited shipping.
If you've already purchased the Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar, consider making a matching gift<http://www.marchforindependence.org/site/R?i=Jnf9q-kPtBBnL4Zg00-INQ..> to the "Braille Readers are Leaders" campaign. It is a great way to multiply the impact of your purchase. We at the National Federation of the Blind thank you for your devotion to America's blind and wish you the happiest of holiday seasons!
