Don’t delay; order a singing telegram today!

‘Tis the season of traditions, festivities, and cheer, so why not spread some love with a holiday singing telegram!
In a world that has lately been so full of negatives, let’s share joy and gratitude with those we love by sending a song.
The National Federation of the Blind Performing Arts Division will again be delivering singing telegrams for the holidays two weekends in December, for only $5 per song! Send them to your spouse, your partner, your kids, your grandparents, your friends, your neighbors, your dog – share the love with anyone and everyone! There are wintertime songs, Hanukkah and Christmas favorites, and even some R&B selections — something for everyone! Brighten up someone’s day by giving them something small to put a smile on their face.
Recently, we’ve added piano and violin as musical offerings. Songs will be sent on the weekends of December 10-12 or 17-19, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your preference.

All information can be found at: www.nfb-pad.org/telegrams

How it works:
First, select your song from our list of holiday favorites below these instructions. Your request must be submitted by 5 PM Eastern on December 5, so spread the word and order soon!
Next, fill out the form at www.nfb-pad.org/telegrams with your song selection, the name of the person who will receive the telegram, their phone number and/or email, which weekend requested for delivery, and whether you would like an audio file sent via text or email or a phone call with potential voicemail.
Then, be sure to pay your $5. Please make your payment through Venmo to NFB Performing Arts, @NFB-PAD or make your Paypal payment at www.paypal.me/nfbpad . If paying with PayPal, please contribute an extra $.50 (50 cents) to allow for the processing fee.
Finally, once we have received your completed form and confirmed payment, one of our talented vocalists or instrumentalists will deliver your singing telegram to your special loved one in December.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at nfbpad at gmail.com.
Let’s bring some love and joy into our world!
Please note: We recommend selecting an audio file method for Telegram delivery, so the recipient has a permanent keepsake. If selecting a phone call, if the recipient does not answer, we will do our best to deliver a voicemail, but we cannot guarantee success if the voicemail box is full or nonexistent.

Thank you for supporting the NFB Performing Arts Division!
