Young Letter Writers Eager to Share Thoughts

Young letter writers2

To support Special Olympics USA athletes in the upcoming Summer Games, the Postal Service created a special letter writing campaign designed to encourage the public to send words of inspiration to the talented athletes

Wesley, IA, Postal Support Employee and schoolteacher Amanda Studer eagerly adopted the campaign. She taught her 4H Afterschool Program students about folded, stamped and letter mail, and encouraged them to write their words of support to the Special Olympic athletes.

The class not only enjoyed the activity, they were also excited to have the chance to communicate with Olympians.

If you would like to send a letter of encouragement to Special Olympics USA athletes, direct your letters to:

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

    I’m in favor of anything that encourages children to use the mail. Children love mail — both sending and receiving it — and just need to be shown how it works, given writing/packaging materials and stamps and encouraged to send cards, letters and packages to family and friends.

    I agree with grannybunny; I gave a packet of stamped “Looney Tune” postal cards to my 6yr. old granddaughter for a birthday present. It was such fun sorting the mail and getting a greeting from my granddaughter at work! She loved getting a reply back, too!
