The national Federation of the blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want. Blindness is not what holds you back.

> 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

> 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
