Domestic Violence Stamp Unveiled

TheU.S. Postal Service has unveiled a new stamp, helping to fight domestic violence. The "Stop Family Violence" stamp was unveiled in Tyler Friday. It's one of just three in US history that share their proceeds. Tyler postmaster Fred Arrambidez says those proceeds will go toward a good cause.
"The proceeds that come from the semi postal stamps, of course the extra 8 cents that come from the stamp will be earmarked to go to the Health and Human Services Department to be distributed to help fight family violence."
The "Breast Cancer Research" stamp was the first semi-postal stamp and has raised about $30 million for the cause. A stamp to help families and victims of the 9-11 tragedy was issued in 2002 and has raised about $8 million.
