Special Olympics Letter Writing Campaign

Special Olympics 1

Letter Writing Campaign

In honor of the release of the Special Olympics World Games Forever stamp, the U.S. Postal Service is inviting the American public to write letters of encouragement to Special Olympics USA athletes.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Start with a salutation, such as “Dear Athlete” or “Dear Special Olympics athlete.”
  • Express your thanks to them for representing the United States at the World Games.
  • Share a little about yourself: family, hobbies, school, or pets.
  • Talk about your favorite sport or event at the World Games.
  • Still can’t find the words to express your support? Draw a picture instead using the Special Olympics World Games logo!
  • Use your first name only and no addresses please.
  • Please do not include, nor ask for, personal contact information such as names, phone numbers, or e-mail addresses.

Mail your letters to:

Special Olympics USA
c/o National Events
475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, RM 10545
Washington, D.C. 20260

Sending letters and cards through the mail is a meaningful, more joyful way to connect with one another, and a handwritten letter or colorful drawing has a greater impact than an email or text. Show your love and support for athletes competing in the Special Olympics World Games.
