A Presidential greeting

One of my Mommy friends told me that the White House will send you a greeting for the birth of your baby.  This is definitely one for the baby book! 

Ours came at the end of May:

Sorry it's a little blurry. We haven't had the chance to get our fancy camera yet :)

The return address says "The White House"!



Get your own!  Here's how:
1. You must be a US Citizen.

2. Baby must have been born within the past 12 months.

3. Provide the following information: Name of baby, address of baby, date (month, day, year) of birth, and requestor's name and daytime phone number. I just sent one of Carina's birth announcements along with the other needed information.

4. Mail the requests to:
The White House
Attn: Greetings Office
Washington, D.C. 20502-0039

It took about 6 weeks to get ours.  Has anyone else sent away for one?  If so, did you get yours yet?

Is it actually their sigs? or stamps?

Sweet Jo said...

I completely forgot that they do this! Sending fore Cal's tomorrow! :)

Mama G said...

@Kristin - It's too nice to be a stamp, but I highly doubt they are authentic signatures. Probably an Autopen or something.

I recently read that the babys birth does not have to be within 12 months, but does have to have been within Obama's administration. I am going to send off a request for my 1 1/2 year old...we'll see if that's true!

Mama G said...

@Kim - what great news! It's definitely worth a shot, right?

Kim said...

Just an update, I received the greeting I requested for my one and a half year old today :)

Mama G @ Growing Up Geeky said...

@Kim - wow, already? That was fast! So glad you got it.
