Make It Through Monday - New stamp to raise money for veterans with PTSD

***Yes I realize today is Wednesday but unfortunately not even iHeartMedia Milwaukee is perfect and although I wrote this on Monday our blogging site was down for a few days. I still wanted to share this as I think this is an awesome idea and who knows maybe you need a Wednesday afternoon pick-me-up today! ;)

Today for your Make It Through Monday moment powered by Winkie’s Hallmark & Gifts I wanted to share something The United States Postal Service is doing that I think is really awesome. They have issued a new semipostal stamp called the “Healing PTSD” stamp that will sell for 65 cents which includes a ten cent premium that will be donated to veteran causes and is now available nationwide. Fox 6 mentions in their article that “Art Director Greg Breeding designed them using art by Mark Laita which features a photo illustration showing a green plant sprouting up from brown, fallen leaves, with the words “Healing PTSD”. The design is meant to symbolize the healing that takes place after trauma causing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.”

I’m currently reading a book about a soldier who returned from serving overseas and is suffering from PTSD. It’s not the main focus of the book but one of the main characters suffers from PTSD so it reminds you that PTSD is a very real thing and can majorly impact someone’s life and those around them. I think The United States Postal Service getting behind this by raising awareness and funds is really special. Click here to read more from the article at

One of the best things about Winkie’s Hallmark & Gifts is that they have the perfect gift for anyone on your list. You can cross it all off in one place! Take their Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments for example. If one of your loved ones is a member of the armed forces they have awesome ornaments for them. Last year I got my hair stylist a hair dryer ornament from Winkie’s and she loved it! The Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments are a perfect option because they can be specialized for each person on your list. Another great thing about Winkie’s Hallmark & Gifts is the fact that they help make gifts special while not making it extra hard on you. They have everything you need for the holidays in one place. Let’s start with the cards. They have rows and rows of cards of all different types. They also have box cards if you plan to send out quite a few. They have lots of great gift options for lots of different types of people and finally they have the perfect gift wrap to really make it special. From all different sizes of bags to really pretty and special gift wrap, Winkie’s Hallmark & Gifts has it all in one place for your right at the Corner of Silver Spring & Lake Drive in Whitefish Bay!
