As an independently owned business, we have the freedom to support causes we believe in and to impact the world in a positive way. Giving back is important to us and we want to share that passion with you. Through the use of Semi-Postal or fundraising stamps on every card shipped, we’ve been able to help raise funds to fight Alzheimer's disease, support breast cancer research, and help treat those impacted with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Thank you for helping us do our part to improve the planet and support the people who live on it.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. Currently, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 13%.
The stamp art depicts a woman standing with her right arm raised, reaching behind her head in the position recommended for breast self-examination. The drawing of the woman's body is set against a background of pastel colors ranging from yellow to violet that cover the entire face of the stamp. Across the top of the stamp are the words "Breast Cancer." Circling the figure's right breast are the phrases in all caps, "FUND THE FIGHT" & "FIND A CURE."
