Postage Stamp

This idea just came to me as I was reading another post. Has anyone thought of or pursued the idea of having a postage stamp created for preeclampsia awareness? They have breat cancer ones and baby infant loss ones - (I beleive). I know there were a lot of women involved with creating the baby infant loss one, not sure if it has been released. I am not sure of how to go about it but I think that it would make a nationwide/worldwide impact.

What do you think?

Great, great idea...I'm sure all we have to so is reserch the idea...I wonder what the "sales" are like for the other organizations.I tried to do a search for this, boy is it hard to narrow done, I am thinking it has to be approved through the USPS, but can't find the criteria.

Yes. I found some info last night and forwarded it on to Laura and then it is going to Eleni. I hope something great can comeout of this. The USPS has a group of people that approve stamps for each year based on what they receive for ideas. There is always one section for health awareness that they create a stamp for. This year is children's health. I would love to see Preeclampsia!!!

Prayers that this works out [:)]

Not sure about that. You can email Elani and ask her to research it or email her any information you find.

Hugs,
