National Philanthropy Day is celebrated annually on November 15. This day signifies the importance of working together for the common good. Philanthropic deeds come in all different shapes and sizes — charitable giving, volunteering, etc. — and on National Philanthropy Day, no act of kindness goes unnoticed. President Reagan first proclaimed November 15 as National Philanthropy Day in 1986, and communities all throughout the world have celebrated the importance of this occasion ever since.

Found this great article on our client The National Postal Museum, which tells the history of America through moon mail, rare stamps, and one taxidermy dog http://ow.ly/YlKT30p3LNR. The flyaway stamps structure is our favorite. https://www.d-and-p.com/postal

The National Postal Museum may not be as well known as other Smithsonian institutions, but its postal memorabilia collection makes it a D.C. must-see.
