HELP PUT GERTRUDE BERG ON A STAMP!
Did you know that anyone can suggest a stamp idea?
Ideas for new stamps are reviewed by the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee and they are required to review all stamp suggestions mailed in. The Ciesla Foundation thinks it's time Gertrude Berg had a stamp with her picture and we would like your help.
With 2009 as the release date of Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg and 80 years since The Goldbergs premiered on radio, we cannot think of a better time to issue a stamp in her honor.
Now it's even easier to give a deserving member of history her own stamp.
Ideas for stamps may be addressed to the following:
