The Missive Maven pointed her readers to the Send the Love website, a site dedicated to saving the USPS. The site lists actions you can take to save the USPS, like writing the Postal Regulatory Commission to ask them not to close small post offices across the country or end Saturday delivery.
The site also suggests that you make a mark on all of your outgoing mail to show letter carriers and other USPS employees that you appreciate the service they provide. Make a heart with a “P.O.” inside. It’s simple and it’s a way of showing support as postal workers go through a tough time wondering what the future will bring.
Also, write your congress people and ask them NOT to support the Issa-Ross bill, which seems to be a step toward dismantling the post office by cutting Saturday delivery and closing thousands of rural post offices. There are other ways that have been proposed to save the USPS without destroying the quality of the service they offer.
