Dear Colleagues, 

  

I hope that you are all doing well.  I am writing to tell you about what we
are planning for Meet the Blind Month.  We are rolling out a pilot program
called Who's Whozit.  This program is targeted at school-aged children and
the idea is to teach them about blindness and dispel any misconceptions
about blindness at an early age.  I have attached the MTBM campaign guide
for this year, which explains the program in more detail.  Please note that
this doesn't mean that you can not do any Meet the Blind Month activities
you normally do-this is a pilot program and you are not required to do it.
If you or someone in your affiliate wants to take on this project, that
would be fantastic. 

  

In addition, there is information about a give-by-text program we are going
to be starting that will benefit the Imagination Fund.  As you know, the
fund benefits the Jernigan Institute, as well as our state affiliates.  We'd
like your help in getting the word out about this new program.  If you talk
to local groups, please ask them to send a text.  If you can get an
announcement at high school sporting events, or college or professional
sporting events (maybe on the jumbo-tron), that would be fabulous.  Please
note that while we have the information for the texting, we do not yet have
the program completely set up, so we have not yet begun the program.  I did
want you to have the information so that when it is ready, we will be ready.

  

If you have any questions about any of this please let me know.  We will
have the literature order form for MTBM ready to go on nfb.org later this
week.  Thank you so much!

Sincerely, 
Karen C. Zakhnini 
Manager of Corporate Outreach, Jernigan Institute
