we've got signatures, help us get to 6,000 by July 8, 2008
The groundbreaking Breast Cancer Research Stamp, which has raised more than $55.5 million for breast cancer research since its introduction in 1998, is up for reauthorization this year. Right now, three bills in Congress could reauthorize the stamp - or make it permanent! -
but Congress has yet to act on them, which means we could lose this convenient, popular and effective way of raising funds for breast cancer research.
By law, the stamp sells for 55 cents, and the net proceeds go to critical breast cancer research work. More than 773 million Breast Cancer Research Stamps have been sold in the past eight years, making it the top-selling commemorative stamp in U.S. history!
Clearly - the American public supports the Breast Cancer Research Stamp. Now we need Congress to reauthorize the stamp or make it permanent. Otherwise, it will no longer be offered for sale by the U.S. Postal Service and researchers working on finding the cure to breast cancer will lose a key funding source.
Please urge your Members of Congress to support the Breast Cancer Research Stamp!
