> This is one e-mail you should be glad to pass on. The notion that we could

> As you may be aware, the US Postal Service recently released its new "Fund

> It is important that we take a stand against this disease that affects so

> Instead of the normal 37 cents for a stamp, this one costs 40 cents. The
> additional 3 cents will go to breast cancer research.
> A "normal" book costs $7.40. This one is only $8.00. It takes a few
> in line at the Post Office and means so much. If all stamps are sold, it
> will raise an additional $35,000,000 for this vital research.
> Just as important as the money is our support. What a statement it would
> if the stamp outsold the lottery this week. What a statement it would make
> that we care.
> I would urge you to do two things TODAY:
> 1. Go out and purchase some of these stamps.
> 2. E-mail your friends to do the same.
> We all know women and their families whose lives are turned upside-down by
> breast cancer. It takes so little to do so much in this drive. I think we
