Calling all who loathe Alzheimer’s and want to see it stopped!!!

I received the email below this morning and felt compelled to share it. Please take two seconds to answer friend and super-advocate Lynda Everman‘s plea. She and Kathy Siggins​ have been lobbying for this for years and the time has come! We NEED an Alzheimer’s semipostal (fundraising) stamp… It’s easy to help – just click here  and add your name. Let’s inundate the Postmaster General with an overwhelmingly powerful ask!! Thank you!! #HelpStampOutAlzheimers

=====================================

Friends –

As a caregiver for my late husband and an activist with UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, I know the toll Alzheimer’s takes on both patients and their loved ones, and the urgent need for a cure.

With enough funding for research, an end to this devastating disease is within reach. One untapped source of funding is the Postal Service’s semipostal stamp program, which allows consumers to pay a little bit extra to donate to important causes.

Earlier this month UsAgainstAlzheimer’s wrote to the Postmaster General urging her to establish a new semipostal program benefiting Alzheimer’s research, but now she needs to hear from YOU to ensure the Postal Service makes this a priority.

Add your voice: Join UsAgainstAlzheimer’s in calling for an Alzheimer’s semipostal stamp to fund the search for a cure!

Previous stamps have raised tens of millions for breast cancer research, and a new Alzheimer’s Awareness and Research stamp would be an incredible opportunity to raise awareness and support lifesaving Alzheimer’s research.

If each of us writes the Postmaster General, we can send a clear message that it’s time to create a semipostal stamp for Alzheimer’s to fund the search for a cure.

Thank you for adding your voice,

Lynda Everman
