Today I went in for orientation for a postal clerk position I have been wanting, I learned a bunch of stuff about our postal system and one bit of information I thought was really cool that I wanted to share. In July of 1998 the United Postal System starting selling breast cancer stamps for 55 cents per stamp, 10 cents of that stamp went to breast cancer research. As of today there is over 75 million dollars of voluntary contributions that have been raised simply by just purchasing these stamps. Man when I heard that I thought that was pretty amazing, what an easy way to give back. The stamps were only going to be sold till 2010 but because of the amazing results they extended them to 2013. So go out there and get some stamps and support a good cause and get some pretty cool looking stamps to boot.
