“Incensed by the release of a postage stamp honoring Harvey Milk, the American Family Association is urging its members not only to avoid purchasing the stamp…but to refuse to accept or open any letter or package postmarked with one.”

From a post by the AFA:

1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.
    2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write “Return to Sender" on the envelope and tell your postman you won't accept it.

In response, a friend has suggested this: "I want to mail all of these people an envelope that looks like it has a check in it with a Harvey Milk stamp, and when they open it, it says 'A donation has been made to the Matthew Shepard Foundation on your behalf. MADE YOU LOOK!!!'”

So, if you’d like to join in...

Buy your Harvey Milk stamps here.

Donate to the Milk Foundation and/or the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

Print a copy of your receipt(s) and add a note along the lines of 'A donation has been made to the Matthew Shepard Foundation on your behalf. MADE YOU LOOK!!!'

Put it in an envelope with the notation "DONATION" on the outside and use your Harvey Milk stamp to mail it to:

American Family Association
P O Drawer 2440
Tupelo, MS 38803

Enjoy!  :D
