New Stamps Encourage Us All to Be Physically Active

Run! Jump! Leap! Spin! Climb! Today we reveal a set of 15 stamps that encourages young Americans—and the adults in their lives—to be physically active.

JustMove-Forever-pane15-v3Each of the 15 stamps features a different child engaged in one of 15 activities: skipping rope, juggling, bouncing a ball, performing a cartwheel, kicking a soccer ball, playing basketball, skateboarding, twisting in the air, playing baseball, stretching, running, performing a head stand, jumping into water, climbing a rope, and swinging.

Whew. We’re tired . . . and exhilarated!

The action words on the stamps invite children to participate in all the activities shown and remind us all that children and adults need regular physical activity. Artist Eli Noyes’s illustrations wonderfully capture the fun and playful spirit of this message.

The Just Move! stamps will be issued in a sheet of 15 self-adhesive Forever® stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate. A release date has not yet been set.
