Have you visited the USPS Stamps Facebook page recently? Something very exciting is taking place there. This week and next we’re using social media to help bring to life an important chapter in American history.
Through August 23, everyone on Facebook and Twitter is invited to add their profile picture to the virtual March on Washington Stamp Mosaic. As individual photos become pixels in the mosaic, they will slowly unveil the 1963 March on Washington commemorative Forever® 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,” said Chief Marketing Officer Nagisa Manabe.
The final pixel of the stamp will be simultaneously revealed digitally on Facebook and on-site during the stamp’s First Day of Issue ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Friday, August 23. Until then, anyone can participate. Just visit the virtual stamp mosaic page and click the “Add Me” tab to add your profile photo to the mosaic. It’s that easy!
