Dear Fellow Federationists,

We are moving into the next phase of promoting and selling the Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar. Now that the introductory phase is over, we must keep the Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar in the spotlight so that sales continue. A professional team has created three radio spots that announce the availability and importance of the silver dollars and direct the listener to usmint.org and braille.org to purchase the coins and to learn more about our Braille literacy campaign. The three radio spots are 30 seconds, 60 seconds, and 120 seconds in length. The 120 second radio spot is targeted to radio reading services  for the blind; the others are more appropriate for commercial radio .

 Please help this critically important public relations effort by pitching the 30 and 60 second radio spots to your local radio stations. This will be a quick and easy way to reach thousands of people who would not normally hear about the Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar. 

You can find the radio spots online at http://www.nfb.org/nfb/Braille_Coin_Press_Kit.asp (the WAV versions are best for radio stations) or request them directly from Jessica Freeh at jfreeh at nfb.org. Jessica can also help you find contact information for your local radio stations. 

We urge you to start pitching your local radio stations soon. While the sales of the silver dollars are still strong, this initiative will ensure that we reach our goal of selling out all of the coins.

Thank you for all of your continued hard work.

Chris Danielsen
