U.S. Postal Service Campaign to Help Fund Cancer Research with a Breast Cancer Stamp

The breast cancer awareness postal stamp was the nation's first fund-raising stamp, according to the U.S. Postal Service. Issued in 1999, the Postal Service made an announcement in 2002 that the cost of the stamp was being raised from 40-cents to 45-cents, and that the stamp would be on sale until at least December of 2003. The U.S.P.S. called it a "semipostal stamp," which meant that it was priced above the normal cost of First-Class postage with the net proceeds going to a good cause. Thirty percent of of the net proceeds went to the Medical Research program of the Department of Defense (for breast cancer research), and seventy percent went to the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
