Stars team up with U.S. Postal Service to unveil \"Stop Domestic Violence\" Stamp

November 26, 2003

The Dallas Stars will help the U.S. Postal Service announce a campaign to stop family violence by unveiling a new U.S. postage stamp during the second intermission of the Stars vs. Los Angeles Kings game on Sunday, November 30, at American Airlines Center (6 PM face-off). A heart-wrenching image of a distraught woman drawn by a child artist is the focal point of the new stamp to raise funds for domestic violence programs and increase awareness about this important social issue.

The Stop Family Violence postal stamp is available for purchase at all U.S. post offices, by toll-free telephone order at 1-800-STAMP-24, and by online order at www.usps.com/shop. The Postal Service has printed 125 million Stop Family Violence stamps.

"The Stop Family Violence stamp allows every American to contribute to a nationwide effort to end domestic violence," said Donna Peak, controller and vice president of finance for the Postal Service. "By using this stamp on their cards and letters, our customers will help bring before the public eye a problem that is too often ignored."

Participating in the intermission ceremony will be Dallas Postmaster Eric Martinez, Dallas CASA Executive Director Beverly Levy, and Stars Executive Vice President of Business Operations Geoff Moore.

The price of the self-adhesive, non-denominated stamp is 45 cents. As a semipostal, it is valid for postage at the First-Class one-ounce letter rate in effect at the time of purchase, with the difference between the sales price and actual postage consisting of a tax-deductible contribution.

Funds raised in connection with sales of the stamp - less the Postal Service's reasonable costs - will be transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services in accordance with the Stamp Out Domestic Violence Act of 2001.

The stamp's striking design and the circumstances that led to its use are rather unusual. Art Director Carl T. Herrman selected Monique Blais, a six-year-old girl from Santa Barbara, Calif., to model for the stamp design. The intention was to photograph Blais erasing a domestic violence image - implying eradication of the issue. At one point during a break in the photo session, and without prompting, Blais began drawing her own picture of what she thought best represented domestic violence. Photographed by Philip Channing, Blais' drawing became the basis for the final Stop Family Violence design.
