COVID Card #27

June 1, 2020 | 0 comments

Well, we’ve made it to June 2020. According to the US House of Representatives, this is it. This is the month. Without government funding or an increase in income, the USPS could cease operations any time. Please note that this source is the government site for the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. It’s not a news site. The Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act proposes funding to save the post office. You can track the proposal here.

Did you know that ZERO tax dollars are used to fund the US Postal Service?

Today’s COVID Card gives a nod to dog sleds. Until 1963, dog sleds were used to deliver mail to parts of Alaska.

Cards 1-100

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
