I read on another website that people can mke suggestions for the USPS semipostal fundraising stamps. I have not yet found the information on the USPS website on how to do it, but it may be something the orginization wants to pursue in the future.

I actually don't know how to contact in the USPS and I wasn't sure if the info on the website I was looking at was specific for that cause or even to the USPS. I looked at their website but didn't see anything that stated what the procedures were for nominating a cause but I thought maybe soemone here may know the who/what/where to contact

I had thought of this a while back. I will dig up the link for what I found. You have to go through a process of presenting the idea to the USPS and then they vote each year. There is always one stamp picked for a health related issue. Elani is the one to contact about this directly.
