A SPECIAL NOTE AND UPDATE FROM LYNDA EVERMAN AND KATHY SIGGINS: OUR FRIENDS AND ADVOCATES FOR MAKING AVAILABLE THE ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE SEMIPOSTAL STAMP AVAILABLE ACROSS THE NATION
Hi M4A friends! We have just seen the latest figures regarding sales of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Semipostal Stamp. In it’s first 7 months on the market, three million stamps have been sold to raise $471,000 for NIH funded research. These figures are reflected on the USPS website: https://about.usps.com/corporate-social-responsibility/semipostals.htm
Purchasing, using, giving it as gifts, etc. provides an inexpensive but meaningful way to support families currently facing dementia and to honor the memory of those we’ve lost to this cruel disease. Thank you all for your efforts in promoting the Alzheimer’s semipostal. Let’s keep the momentum going to meet our goal of raising over $1 million for Alzheimer’s research by the end of the year!
