Fall Donation Drive - Cruise Drawing

The National Federation of the Blind of Maryland is holding a Fall donation drive to support our work. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to significantly increase our resources with regard to advocacy, education, and outreach related to teleschooling, access to information, access to transportation, telehealth, and other areas impacting the blind.


Between September 19 and 26, 2021, NFBMD will be hosting Blind Cruising 2021, which is a 7-night cruise on the Carnival Pride to the Eastern Caribbean. Individuals may book passage directly with our travel agent, with a portion of cabin costs going to NFBMD. Those interested may find information at http://www.nfbmd.org/blindcruising.


Aditionally, we will hold a cruise drawing at the NFBMD Convention Banquet on November 7, 2020. The winner will receive a balcony cabin for two on the Carnival Pride for the sailing scheduled to depart Baltimore from September 19 - 26, 2021, which is the sailing where Blind Cruising 2021 will take place.


The rules for the drawing are as follows:

1. For each $10 donated, the donor will receive one chance. For example, if the donor contributes $100, that equates to 10 chances.

2. The donor must expressly state that he/she wishes to have his/her name placed in the cruise drawing.

3. Donations must be made separately from any door prize contributions, convention registration donations, or COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund donations.

4. Donations must be received on or before November 1, 2020.
