No, we're not kidding. The National Education and Legal Defense Services for the Blind needs a logo.

Q: What is the National Education and Legal Defense Services for the Blind?

A: It is a group of blind and visually impaired men and women who got together back in 1992 with the idea of helping other blind people with discrimination issues at work, school, church and in their daily living activities.

Q: How does this organization help people?

A: NELDS currently has three attorneys on its board; however, when needed, others are consulted depending on the situation. Let's say an individual feels discriminated against at work and needs help. He or she can contact a NELDS member and ask for help. The case would be reviewed and, if NELDS can assist, the wheels are set in motion.

Q: Will I be charged for this service?

A: No. Our members sell benefit tickets each year to raise funds and also accept membership applications from individuals, chapters and state and special interest affiliates.

Now for the logo; develop your design and send it either by USPS to Donna Seliger, 3912 SE 5th St., Des Moines, IA 50315 or via e-mail to [email protected]. The entries must be sent no later than Feb. 15, 2008. The winner will be notified and an announcement will appear in a future issue of "The Braille Forum." For questions, please call (515) 284-0505.
