33 Organ donor awareness postage stamp campaign and other awareness materials

After nearly two decades of work by many individuals the Postal Service has
finally seen fit to issue a stamp to raise donor awareness.

From e-mail to TRNSPLNT from Debi Surlas 7 Aug 1998

The New Donor Awareness postage stamp went on sale nationally on August 6th.
But, unfortunately, this stamp is not being automatically sent to all post
offices. Unlike most special issue stamps (like the Breast Cancer Awareness
and even the Alfred Hitchcock stamps), this one has to be specifically
ordered by all but a few post offices. So, if yours does not have the new
stamp, ask them to order a supply, and encourage everyone you know to use
the stamp while it is available. It is available in the newer self-adhesive
form.
