I just received this email, and want to share it with Our Circle. Due to the date, I felt this should be shared immediately, so all of you could take advantage of the release of this beautiful stamp.
Together We Can Help Stamp Out Missing Child Cases
National Missing Children’s Day — May 25 — is taking on added meaning this year thanks to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s long-standing partners, Valassis and the U.S. Postal Service.
They’re helping us get the word out about our commitment to reunite missing children with their families by issuing a new “Forget-Me-Not” stamp featuring the phrase “Help Find Missing Children.”
Designed by Ethel Kessler, this striking stamp features a photograph by Harald Biebel showing a small bouquet of forget-me-nots with a lone flower off to the side to represent the child who has been separated from their loved ones and needs our help.
This special stamp will be issued on May 18 as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s Forever series which provides First-Class postage in perpetuity. And it reminds us that we will never forget and never stop searching for any missing child.
Sadly, there are new cases of missing children every day. These children and their families are counting on us. And we know the support and hope we provide simply wouldn’t be possible without friends like you who contribute so generously to our cause.
I urge you to join me in applauding the U.S. Postal Service for their ongoing efforts to help us assist law enforcement in searching for missing children. I also hope you will accept my deepest gratitude for your personal commitment to reuniting missing children with their families.
