USPS Launches New Stamp Fundraiser for PTSD Healing
On December 2, 2019 the United States Postal Service (USPS) launched a new stamp, one that is 'semipostal.' The stamp is a fundraiser with the goal of helping to raise money to help veterans with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
The first-class stamp costs you 65 cents, instead of 55 cents. The ten cent difference per stamp is the fundraising portion. According to a press release "Net proceeds from this stamp will be distributed to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, which oversees the National Center for PTSD."
Do you think that this is a great way to raise money? Will you look into or purchase these stamps? They are considered a 'Forever' stamp so you will always be able to mail a first-class letter with one of these stamps (provided it is not over a certain weight or over sized).
