As you may be aware, the U.S. Postal Service recently released its new
"Fund the Cure" stamp to help fund breast cancer research. The stamp was
design by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland. It is important that we
take a stand and show our outrage against this disease that kills and maims
so many of our mothers, sisters, friends.
Instead of the normal $.32 for a stamp, this one costs $.40. The additional
$.08 will go to breast cancer research. 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 or outsold tickets to Saving Private Ryan this
weekend. What a statement it would make that we care. I urge each of you to
do two things TODAY. Not tomorrow ... but today.
1. Go out and purchase some of these stamps.
2. E-mail or call your friends to do the same.
