Here in the Communications department at FFB’s HQ, we do all we can to help our science and fundraising teams do their jobs. And in Foundation offices nationwide, our staff does all it can to help those on the front lines – those either affected by a retinal disease or supporting someone who is – do all they can to raise awareness and funds.
So we came up with an idea – the Front Lines Fan campaign. First and foremost, we want to celebrate everyone who’s truly on the Foundation’s front lines. They’re the folks doing any number of things: running local chapter meetings, racing and walking for a cure, developing treatments in laboratories, donating funds and promoting FFB across social media, to name just a few.
But we also want to give people on the front lines an opportunity to be recognized—and win a prize along the way. Our Front Lines Fan (FLF) contest is explained, in detail, on the FLF web page, or you can check out the video below:
Either way, we encourage you to nominate either yourself or someone you consider a deserving FLF, then gather the votes necessary to win one of three prizes below:
- Grand Prize: A free trip for two to our annual national conference, VISIONS 2013, in Baltimore, Maryland
- Second Place: A $100 VISA gift card
- Third Place: A $50 Amazon gift card
The grand prize, in particular, will give you the chance to attend FFB’s national conference, where, aside from mixing it up with others on the front lines, you’ll learn the latest about research and have a chance to attend networking, coping and assistive-technology sessions.
So, get out there and nominate. Then vote. And, always, celebrate those on the front lines furthering the Foundation’s cause.
