U.S. Postal Service Invites America to Help Digitally Unveil 1963 March on Washington Forever Stamp

WASHINGTON, DC-- The U.S. Postal Service will issue a limited-edition 1963 March on Washington stamp later this month in honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. In commemoration of this historic event, the Postal Service invites everyone to help digitally unveil the new stamp artwork by becoming a part of a virtual stamp mosaic.

Through Aug. 23, 2013, individuals on Facebook and Twitter can pledge to "take a stand for equality" and add a profile photo to the March on Washington Stamp Mosaic, which is featured on the Postal Service Stamps Facebook page, Facebook.com/USPSStamps. Each individual's photo will unveil a small piece of the 1963 March on Washington stamp artwork, becoming a pixel in the virtual stamp mosaic.

"Each year, the U.S. Postal Service introduces limited-edition stamps that portray American experiences and honor milestones that are important to our country," said Nagisa Manabe, chief marketing officer of the U.S. Postal Service. "With the issuance of the 1963 March on Washington stamp, we want to give people a chance to participate in the unveiling of the historic artwork, given that the participation of hundreds of thousands of people was one reason that the March on Washington was so significant 50 years ago."

Virtual Stamp Mosaic: How It Works
To participate, those interested can visit the March on Washington Stamp Mosaic tab on the USPS Stamps Facebook page, Facebook.com/USPSStamps, and opt-in by clicking "Add Me." Every time a person participates, his or her Facebook or Twitter profile photo is added into the virtual March on Washington Stamp Mosaic, unveiling a small piece of the stamp artwork. As more people participate, the artwork will gradually be uncovered until the full stamp is revealed on Friday, Aug. 23.

Once individuals have participated, they then may return to the March on Washington Stamp Mosaic to find their photos within the artwork. Simply click the "Find Me" button and the application will show where your picture is located within the mosaic.
