ACB is trying a new approach for auctioning items for the upcoming holidays. This gives you the option of finding great gifts for the holidays without leaving the comfort of your home. At the same time, you can be proud to support ACB. Check it out for yourself and tell all your friends, visually impaired or not. Items may be added throughout the holiday season, so check out the site often.

Also, if you have any wonderful items, including yummy holiday goodies, gift cards or certificates you are willing to donate, please contact Dena Wilson in the national office for details. See the step-by-step instructions provided below for accessing the cMarket auction site. Happy holidays, and have fun shopping with ACB! How to Register
