With the project 75 days of service, the Community Service Department of the National Federation of the Blind is creating the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that blindness has nothing to do with being helpless. This initiative invites NFB’s members to volunteer, individually or with one of the NFB local chapters, to help make a positive change in their community. Whether it’s engaging in a community service project with other groups such as local churches and schools, or helping those in need in their neighborhood,

Participants will be able to share ideas and receive support during bi-weekly conference calls every other Sunday. The first call will take place Sunday, April 12, at 7 pm EST/4pmPT
For a complete call schedule:
Using the hashtag #NFB75Serve, volunteers can tweet about their community service activities, and will also have the opportunity to write about their experiences on the National Community Service Division’s official blog. The purpose of the blog is to communicate that the blind are active participants, contributors and collaborators in society.”
This is very good news!
A great way to share experiences while reorienting misconception.
