In the 1950’s, tens of thousands of people sent small bags of grain to President Eisenhower to encourage him to send food to then-enemy China during a famine. The existence of the campaign helped dissuade Eisenhower from attacking China during two international confrontations. Now a nationwide effort has been launched to send a similar message to President Bush about Iraq: If we are going to send something to Iraq it should be food, not bombs.
Send a half cup of uncooked rice in a plastic bag and padded envelope with the message “Rice for Peace - No War On Iraq”
President George Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington DC 20500
A package with a half cup of rice and a very light envelope (see below) is just over 4 ounces. The postage for this is $1.29 (for up to 5 ounces). Additional ounces are 23 cents.
A package with only one-third cup of rice in this light envelope can be less than 3 ounces. Postage: 83 cents.
This light small bubble-pack padded envelope is 4"x7" inside. A paper-pulp padded envelope would require more postage.
Of course, it’s best to RE-USE an old padded envelope or small box. Please be sure it’s durable, labelled clearly and has sufficient postage.
