Subject: [Blindtlk] Looking for community service stories for April
Please pass the following announcement on to anyone you think would be
In honor of National Volunteer Month* and Global Youth Service Day (April
20-22)**, the Community Service Group is looking for stories to feature on
its blog at nfbcommunityservice.wordpress.com. This month the themes are
fairly open, so hopefully there is something for everyone. You are welcome
to write on one or both.
1. Tell us about what led you to serve and why you continue to serve.
Why did you first get involved in community service? What was the first
project you did? What keeps you involved?
2. Tell us about service projects you were involved in as a youth.
What did you do? What did you learn from the experience?
You can start sending in your stories immediately. Stories should be no more
than 500 words. Stories should be submitted by April 25 to ensure inclusion
in the blog during the month of April, but this is a month-long event. In
keeping with the theme, we want to feature stories throughout the month, so
feel free to send them in any time between now and the 25th. Send stories as
an attachment or in the body of a message to nfbcsblog at gmail.com. Be sure to
include your name, state, and a title with each submission. I look forward
to reading about your experiences.
