The following is a petition on the White house website asking USPS to develop a series of stamps depicting breastfeeding. Please follow this link to or the sign petition link below.
we petition the obama administration to:
develop and issue a stamp or series of stamps that depict, promote, and normalize breastfeeding.
The USPS & Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee have a history of raising social awareness through the US stamp program. This worthy tradition of promoting positive social changes can be harnessed in support of breastfeeding as it is a very worthy issue to support and promote!
Many countries have issued stamps depicting breastfeeding including Spain, Luxemborg, Guatamala, Uganda, & Greece. Now is the time for the United States to join these countries in increasing awareness of the health benefits & positive social impact of breastfeeding for both mothers & babies as well as inspiring more American families to choose breastfeeding.
Please consider obtaining guidance from the Int. Lactation Consultants Assn., La Leche League Int., and/or Breastfeeding USA regarding stamp design.
