Even though Breast Cancer Awareness Month ends today, there's still ways to contribute to the fight against the disease all year round.
Like buying stamps. As my good friend Saba likes to says, everyone needs stamps for their snail mail, so why not buy ones that contribute to a good cause?
The U.S. Postal Service Breast Cancer stamp donates - by law - 70% of the net amount to the National Institutes of Health, and 30% to the Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense. Since the stamp was first issued on July 29, 1998, it has raised more than $37 million for breast cancer research.
Designed by Maryland artist Ethel Kessler, the stamp features an illustration of the mythical Goddess of the Hunt by Whitney Sherman, and the phrases Fund the Fight & Find a Cure.
