Established in 2014, the ACB Angels Memorial Tribute Program is an exciting opportunity for ACB members and friends to honor their loved ones and guide dogs who have passed on and who played an important role in the American Council of the Blind, its affiliates, and/or its members.
Each ACB Angels memorial tribute includes a permanent, individualized page on the ACB website. The name of your ACB Angel will become the title of your new tribute web page to help people find it easily through major search engines, such as Google. The page will feature a photo and a personalized biography of your loved one. These compelling testimonials will insure that your ACB Angel’s memory will live on within our ACB family long into the future!
In addition, a Wall of Angels is displayed at ACB conferences and conventions. This display consists of a plaque with large print and braille representing each memorialized person or guide dog. Each ACB Angel’s biography is produced in braille and large print, and resides in notebooks on the table where the ACB Angel Wall is displayed.
Donations begin at $500. If you have any questions, or require further assistance, please contact Tom Tobin, ACB’s director of development, at (202) 559-2045, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Participate by choosing the Make an ACB Angel Memorial Tribute Gift link, or contact the Minnesota office at 1-800-866-3242 for assistance.
To date, ACB Angels have been established by individuals and affiliates and, in many cases, a combination of both! What a wonderful way to preserve and cherish the memories of those you love and share them with the world!
To ensure the plaques for the Angel Wall are completed in time for the 2019 national conference and convention in Rochester, N.Y., the cut-off date for new ACB Angels is April 30th.
