> The National Federation of theBlind Community Service Division presents:
>  May The Mission, The Movement,, The Milestone (NFB4MServe).
>  This is a Month long effort in  which:
> The  mission is to give of our talents and skills to people and places
> in our communities. We want our sighted  friends and neighbors to
> understand that the blind can and do give, and are not always the
> “takers” society might have us be.
> The movement is all of us as the organized blind furthering our
> message through community service that blindness is not the
> characteristic that defines us or our future. It is also us coming
> together to support each other as we find the ways we will give back
> along side our sighted peers.
> The milestone is the  results; the raising of expectations of the
> blind and the celebration of the difference that we will have made as
> a federation family by coming together to share our successes and work
> through our obstacles in order to ultimately strengthen the
> Federation and break down barriers to full participation in society.
> You can take part in this project individually or with your chapter ,
> by engaging in a community service project, such as
> volunteering for a nonprofit organization, local church or school, or
> helping those in need in your neighborhood. Participants will be able
> to share ideas and receive support during bi-weekly conference calls,
> use the hashtag #NFB4MServe to tweet about their   community service
> activities
> , and will also have the opportunity to write about
> their experiences on the National Community Service Division’s
> official blog, www.nfbcommunityservice.org/blog. The  purpose of the
> blog is to  communicate to society that the blind  are active
> participants,  contributors and collaborators in society.   The  Blog
> is a outlet through which we  showcase by way of community
> Service/volunteerism what we believe in the Federation, that we as
> blind people can live the life we want and that blindness isn’t what
> holds us bak from doing so.  .
> The first call will take place on Sunday, May 1, at 8:30 pm EST. The
> Call- in information for this, and all other calls is as follows:
> (712)432-0140 and the access code is 808277.  The
