BREAST CANCER STAMP
We need those of you who are great at forwarding on
info with your e-mail network. Please read and pass
on. Peace and good health. It would be wonderful if
2001 were the year a cure for breast cancer was
This is one note I'll gladly pass on. The notion that
we could raise $16 million by buying a book of stamps
is powerful! As you may be aware, the US Postal
Service recently released its new "Fund the Cure"
stamp to help fund breast cancer research. The stamp
was designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland.
It is important that we take a stand against this
disease that kills and maims so many of our mothers,
sisters, friends. Instead of the normal $0.34 for a
stamp, this one costs $0.40. The additional $.07 will
go to breast cancer research. A "normal" book costs
$6.60. This one is only $8.00.
It takes a few minutes in line at the Post Office and
means so much.
If all stamps are sold, it will raise an additional
$16,000,000 for this vital research. Just as
important as the money is our support. What a
statement it would make if the stamp outsold the lottery
this week. What a statement it would make that we care.
I urge you to do two things TODAY:
1. Go out and purchase some of these stamps.
2. E-mail your friends to do the same.
Many of us know women and their families whose lives
are turned upside-down by breast cancer. It takes so
little to do so much in this drive.
You can probably afford the $1.40.
Please help & pass it on!
