National Federation of the Blind Service Saturday

Be NFB's Valentine! Help us in our quest to change what it means to be blind!
 
The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) conducts innovative programs that empower blind people of all ages and provides them with the necessary skills to compete with their sighted peers in the classroom, on the job, and in the community. These vital programs rely heavily on the work of volunteers like you! Your "heart work" this Valentine's weekend will undoubtedly bring the hopes and dreams of blind Americans to fruition.
