Hi, everyone — (I’m using the White House letterhead)
The other day the President had lunch with a woman named Rebekah at Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis.
Rebekah, at her wit’s end spent her last 5o cents on postage and wrote the president a letter. She had no one else to ask for money to pay her mortgage, and mounting medical bills.
Now, just sending a check would be called charity. And the Clintons are better at charity than the Obamas…Also, they have more money. So, instead, the President decided to be cool and deliver a reply letter in person.
Rebekah and the President spent the day together — they stopped for burgers before holding a town hall with other members of the community and small business owners, to hear directly from folks about what’s on their mind.
So, do not be a naysayer. Don’t think as Rebekah first thought,
“I’m pretty sure this is a silly thing to do, to write the President.”
It’s not a silly thing at all. You may get a free meal out of it, and maybe an invitation to be on Oprah. Or Dr. Phil. But, if you want something more, write to somebody else. Or pray.
Anyway, writing is cathartic, so do write to some rich person, and who knows?! Remember Rebekah’s luck!
To send the letter by mail, use: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, D.C.
