Default Stamp out Breast Cancer

I saw this posted on the Demo website, I'm sure many of you did too. But I thought it was worth bringing over.


"> ALL RIGHT EVERYONE, let's do this! We need those of you who are great at
forwarding information to your e-mail network. Please read and pass this on.
It would be wonderful if 2004 were the year a cure for breast cancer were
found! This is one e-mail you should be glad to pass on. The notion that we
could raise $35 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 affects so many of our mothers, sisters and friends.
> >Instead of the routine 37 cents for a stamp, this one costs 40 cents. The additional 3 cents will go to breast cancer research. A "normal" book costs $7.40. This book 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 $35,000,000 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 would 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. We all 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. I think we can all afford the additional
60 cents the new book costs."

I thought I would buy these stamps to use to promote our Breast Cancer stamp set.
