Diwali Stamp Campaign

Diwali Stamp Campaign

March 16, 2015

The commitment of the Indiaspora community to a Diwali postal stamp culminated in USPS issuing its first Diwali stamp on October 6, 2016, and setting a record for first-day sales.

Partnering with Indian-American leaders and organizations, the Diwali Stamp Initiative included advocacy on Capitol Hill, the White House, and in large thanks to you, more than 20,000 letters and postcards written to the postal service!

Read about Indiaspora‘s journey here, our Diwali celebration on Capitol Hill in 2015 and the official launch at the Indian consulate in November 2016.

Most importantly, don’t forget to order your stamps for the holiday season by visiting here!
