How to Receive an 80th Birthday
Greeting from Our President
One of the most cherished gifts to give someone who is turning 80 is a personalized Birthday Greeting from our President. Imagine receiving this special letter signed from our President wishing you a Happy 80th Birthday. These cards are only sent to people who are 80 or older. Planning ahead for this gift is the key. It is recommended to send in your request at least six weeks in advance but due the popularity of this request it is better to send yours several months early. Anyone can send the request on behalf of the honoree. When my mother turned 80 she received a letter from President George Bush signed by George Bush and Laura Bush.
To qualify for a birthday greeting you must meet the following requirements:
- You must be a U.S. Citizen
- You must be turning 80 or older for the Presidential Birthday Greeting
Write a letter and Include the following information:
The Name and Home address of the honoree.
