We Need Your Help to Protest
We are appealing to our U.S. pledge club members to write a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives protesting the increase in U.S. postage rates.
Our Lady's Apostolate relies on nonprofit mail to help spread the Message of Fatima. When the rates increased in January, our rates for nonprofit standard mail increased more than five times as much as the rates for commercial mailers, whose rate actually decreased by eight percent. At this time, these rate increases could cost the Apostolate as much as $75,000 per year!!
Please write to your Representative, telling him rates for comparable classes of mail should increase by approximately the same amount over the same time period. Please ask your Representative to help introduce legislation that would reduce the increase for nonprofit mail to the same percentages as for the equivalent commercial mail. The 1971 Postal Reorganization Act calls for fair and equitable rates. That's all we are asking for.
