Hi Richard,
If I can get onboard you can too.
I am sure with all of the things out there you should be able to find something you use and then buy it.
I have to get something for Pet Smart because Kiana the Cat has a Special Cat Food.
I usually buy two bags of Cat Food when I get it.
I know you enjoy eating so you should be able to find something you can use.
I think there are even Cards you can get for some stores.
I think there are some Cards you 
can use for some Coffee Chains such as Starbucks.
This is such an easy way to donate to the NFB of Ohio.
I really appreciate the work that is renuired of those who manage the program including the help they give to those of us who do not place orders online.
Colleen Roth

> We are continuing to make progress in our effort to have a successful BELL Program in Ohio. We now have at least five students who have applied. Please help us spread the word to recruit children ages four to twelve. We will also be conducting a seminar for all parents of blind children at the end of the program regardless of whether or not their children have participated in the BELL Program. We still need funding for BELL. If your chapter or division has not made a contribution in support of BELL please consider doing so immediately.
