“A Stamp for Marvin”

Thousands of Marvin Gaye Fans Respond To Worldwide “A Stamp For Marvin” 
Campaign of Support For Commemorative U.S. Postage Stamp

(Los Angeles) – Thousands of fans have responded to the world wide “grass roots” campaign of support launched two months ago by the Motown Alumni Association (MAA), Los Angeles chapter, to get a commemorative U.S. postage stamp for legendary Motown singer Marvin Gaye.  Letters, petitions and post cards have been received from all across the nation as well as around the world, including Britain, Norway and Sweden. 
The campaign is called “A Stamp for Marvin,” and the committee that is starting the campaign hopes to see their dream come true in time for Marvin’s 65th birthday on April 2, 2004.  They have received over 400,000 signatures and letters in their goal to reach the required 1 million by September 15, 2003. 
“The fans are loudly saying they would like to see a postage stamp for Marvin,” .  The campaign will end September 15th, in time for a meeting of the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee, U.S. Postal Service, scheduled for October. During the last month of the campaign, fans have numerous options to express their support to the USPS Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee so that Gaye can get the stamp on what would have been his 65th birthday on April 2, 
Do your part and send your letter in today. The late soul singer was killed by his father almost 20 years ago.

As a former client and friend, I encourage all fans to write a letter of support to the citizens stamp advisory committee in Washington, DC.  Letters should go to:

Dr. Virginia Noelke 
Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee 
475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Rm. #5670 
Washington, DC 20260-2437

If you would prefer, you may email us your letter to Dr. Noelke and we will print it out and mail it to her. You can simply email us at:Abdul-Jalil []To quote Marvin, “Let’s Get It On!” and circulate this note to everyone that you can.

The Oakland Stroke

We are planning an annual Oakland Schools “Celebration” and are in the process 
of conducting a fact finding survey to determine it’s broad based thrust, need, appeal, and viability. With this event we want to accentuate the positives of an Oakland education, the diversity, and the many successes of it’s students, teachers, administrators, and programs. At this event we will award, reward and honor Oakland students and celebrities for their many achievements and serve as a fundraiser for scholarships and special programs in Oakland. This while providing a platform to advocate youth issues, and provide access to much needed agency outreach programs to youth to give them solutions to their concerns of unemployment and job training ( a job fair), educational opportunities and counseling (college recruitment), voter registration, teen pregnancy and suicide prevention, drug abuse, health screening for HIV, Sickle cell, Asthma, Diabetes, marrow and blood donors among others. 
  The event will bring together the brightest young minds in the District to be honored at this music concert and multi-cultural extravaganza including a film festival, art exhibit, dance, theater, poetry slam, comedy, and sports competitionsin a celebration of the greatness that is Oakland’s. The music, entertainment and celebrity choices for the show is limitless in world class talent and recognized names from Tom Hanks to Hammer;… Tony,Toni, Tone to Tony Bennett,…Santana to Tower of Power,…Mark Curry to Confunction. The Event will showcase Oakland nationally and could be the impetus for an ongoing Image Campaign for the City of Oakland and the Unified School District. 
  The landscape for television, radio, transit, outdoor, and print media; corporate and commercial sponsorships; advertising, marketing, promotional opportunities and exposure are even more incredible!!! 
  We have had preliminary discussions with potential corporate sponsors for 
airline, hotel, sound and lights, local 107 laborers Union, television, radio, outdoor and transit advertising media, movie theater, and many entertainers where the response has been fantastic!!!
