Pennies for Pages
Thank you for your interest in NABS and our Pennies for Pages fundraiser. To sign up to read, or to sponsor a reader, please click here. Otherwise, read on to learn more about this exciting fundraising effort.
Pennies for Pages is being run in conjunction with the NFB's Braille Readers are Leaders contest. We believe that this fundraiser has a lot of potential. However, in order to realize this potential, we need help from all of you!
The idea is this. Students, or anybody else who is interested in helping to raise money for Braille literacy and our national and state student divisions, can sign up to participate in the Braille Readers are Leaders program and then solicit donations from friends, family, or anybody really, for Braille pages read throughout the duration of the contest. Of course, donations of fixed sums are also gratefully accepted.
If you are already participating in either the K-12 or Adult Braille Readers are Leaders contests, you can simply register with NABS as a reader and find people to sponsor you for each page you read. To register as a reader with NABS, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
If you are not yet signed up for the contest, no worries! The reading contest runs from November 1, 2011 through January 4, 2012, and registration for Braille Readers are Leaders is open now, and will remain open throughout the duration of the contest. To register for either the K-12 or Adult Braille Readers are Leaders Contests, please go to www.nfb.org/bral. And, remember, once you have registered for the contest, sign up with NABS to participate in our Pennies for Pages fundraising effort!
If, rather than registering as a reader, you would like to support NABS' efforts by sponsoring a reader, or making a fixed donation, please either register below, as a sponsor, or contact Sean Whalen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608 332-4147.
Donations can be accepted in cash or as checks made out to the National Association of Blind Students and can be given to our Treasurer, Shelby Ball, either in person at Washington Seminar or sent, via postal mail, to:
3725 George Busbee PKW
Kennesaw GA 30144
Any money we raise through Pennies for Pages will be shared, in equal portions, between NABS and the state student divisions (or affiliates) in which the readers reside.
NABS looks forward to working together to raise money for, and promote awareness of, Braille literacy!
