Diwali is an important Hindu festival, and USPS (US Postal Service) is considering issuing stamps for this occasion. USPS has stamps for other festivals too like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid, and Chinese New Year.
To do this, USPS needs 500,000 signatures to have a stamp release, and so far
we have 385000!!!!+ people who have signed the petition.
Please go to the site below and support the release of the Diwali stamp.
Also, please forward widely to others who would support this.
So lets get the Diwali stamp issued.
