Holiday Singing Telegrams

‘Tis the season of traditions, festivities, and cheer, so why not spread some love with a holiday singing telegram!

In a world that has lately been so full of negatives, let’s share joy and gratitude with those we love by sending a song. The National Federation of the Blind Performing Arts Division will be delivering singing telegrams for The holidays two weekends in December, for only $5 per song! Send them to your spouse, your partner, your kids, your grandparents, your friends, your neighbors, your dog – share the love with anyone and everyone! Brighten up someone’s day by giving them something small to put a smile on their face.
Recently, we’ve added piano and violin as musical offerings. Songs will be sent on the weekends of December 10-12 or 17-19, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your preference.
