A year ago, when you prepared to celebrate the holidays and ring in a new year, did you ever imagine 2020 would look the way it has? Our community members have experienced a year of opening their homes to hundreds of new friends, learning new skills or finding the support they needed to improve on a skill they already knew, and joining together on a regular basis to be lifted up by others who also knew what struggles cancer, divorce, addiction, or caring for a loved one brings. Despite the challenges that 2020 has brought, there is no denying as part of this amazing community, we also have a lot to be thankful for.
Please join us on New Year's Eve for an amazing Community-Athon, starting at 3pm ET, as we celebrate all we've accomplished in 2020 and look ahead to a new year of endless possibilities. We will not only be on Zoom for 12 hours of showcasing events held and celebrating this community which continues to thrive because of those who care about and depend on it, but we will have drawings throughout, entertainment, fun, and most importantly, be together to greet 2021! And it will all be streamed live on ACB Radio Community. Just ask Alexa to, "Open ACB Community."
If you would like to support the work of the American Council of the Blind and our ACB Community, for every $25 donated, your name will be placed into the Community-Athon drawing for prizes drawn at the end of each hour.

Happy New Year!
