The Alzheimer’s Stamp

Alzheimer's StampFor $8.40 you get 20 stamps for a first class letter.

It says “Care. Support. Research.” at the top of the page of stamps, but no additional money is collected by the post office to fund Alzheimer’s care, support, or research.

I had so wanted to title this post “Stamp Out Alzheimer’s.” That stamp hasn’t been issued yet. This is only an “awareness” stamp. If public response is good, the postal service may consider a stamp that would actually help us fight this battle.

So, the best thing you can do now is to buy this stamp, so there will be a future Alzheimer’s-themed stamp that will fund research to treat, prevent, and cure this vile disease.  Buy. Peel. Stick. Hope.

  1. I used these stamps instead of Christmas stamps when I sent out my cards. They aren’t bad looking and awareness is the first step to involvement so I figured it might at least make some people think.

  2. Thanks, Ami for this awareness post. I don’t know where I have been, but this is the first time I have seen or heard of this stamp. I shall go to the PO today and buy a book to use. As you know, every little bit helps.

  4. Hey Ami,
    I don’t know what my Url is?? Is that important? Anyway, let me know how to sign up for some stamps. What a fantastic idea. I see your answer above is “Ask your local post office!” So, that’s what I will do. Take care.

    your luvin cuzin,
