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.
