The Forever Stamp

As of May 14, the U.S. Post Office will be again raising the price of stamps. This time the price will go from 39 cents to 41 cents.

Also, which I though was kind of neat, they are introducing a "forever" stamp. It can be purchased for 41 cents, and even if the prices raise again, it will still valid:
"In 2007, the U.S. Postal Service will issue the Forever stamp, which will always be valid as First-Class postage on standard envelopes weighing one ounce or less, regardless of any subsequent increases in the First-Class rate.

The stamp art depicts the Liberty Bell, which is perhaps the most prominent and recognizable symbol associated with American independence. Over the years, the historic significance of the bell's message has transcended our national borders, and today the Liberty Bell is an international icon of freedom. Replicas of the Liberty Bell exist in all fifty states and the District of Columbia."

Walk for a Cure

As the JDRF Walk Chair Person, I would like to extend an invitation to be a part of finding a cure, in our life time, for Juvenile Diabetes.

What is Juvenile Diabetes? Type 1 Diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a disorder of the body's immune system—that is, its system for protecting itself from viruses, bacteria or any "foreign" substances. What is JDRF? JDRF is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 (juvenile) diabetes research worldwide.

In June, Alan and Ellen Levin of Happy Harry's will sponsor our Annual Gala for a Cure. This is a wonderful opportunity to not only donate to a wonderful cause, but also to promote your business and sense of community commitment.

JDRF is accepting donations of cash as well as auction items. If you would like to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, please contact either Stephanie Bucksner at JDRF at 302-888-1117 or Christine Pavlik at 410-398-0110. To learn more about JDRF in Delaware, please visit our website.
