Dear Federationists:

            As you are aware, Meet the Blind Month is around the corner. As
we begin to plan events, it is important to remember the purpose of this
month: to increase awareness of and support for the National Federation of
the Blind. This year we will be implementing a challenge. The challenge is
to come up with an innovative and unique event to promote the NFB in the
local community. This challenge is meant to be fun. The top events will be
voted on in the first weeks of November by anyone who wishes to participate.
Voting will take place on the Meet the Blind Month
homepage<http://www.nfb.org/nfb/Meet_the_Blind_Month.asp> and over the
phone. The ideal challenge event should not consist solely of passing out
literature or tabling, however this does not mean these events should be
excluded from the regular Meet the Blind Month activities. Please read the
attached campaign guidelines document for further information about the

            There are many resources available, which can be found on the
Meet the Blind Month
homepage<http://www.nfb.org/nfb/Meet_the_Blind_Month.asp>. These resources
include the campaign guidelines, event submission form, two sample
proclamations, a link to materials available through the Independence
Market, a press kit, and the Meet the Blind Month events calendar.

            It is important that all scheduled events are reported to me by
e-mail, mkobelinski at nfb.org<mailto:mkobelinski at nfb.org>, or phone, (410)
659-9314, extension 2423 ahead of time to ensure the event is listed on the
Meet the Blind Month events
96>. This will allow individuals to learn of local Meet the Blind Month
activities and provide them with enough time to plan to attend.

            If you have any questions about Meet the Blind Month please
contact me by e-mail, mkobelinski at nfb.org<mailto:mkobelinski at nfb.org>, or
phone, (410) 659-9314, extension 2423. I know Meet the Blind Month is going
