This is pretty amazing.
Did you know that you can get a free congratulatory note from the President when your baby is born? Regardless of your political leanings, you have to admit that it’s pretty cool. I am so stoked that President and Mrs Obama will be signing Charlotte’s note!
Here’s what you have to do. Once your baby is born, mail your request to:
White House Greetings Office
Washington, DC 20500
Alternatively, you can fax your request to 202-456-2461. Include the following information in your request:
- Name and address of the baby
- Exact date of birth
- Your (requestor) name and daytime phone number
- Both parents names
- Any additional mailing instructions (if other than baby’s residence)
It usually takes about six weeks for it to arrive however there has been a deluge of requests due to the historical value of the Obama presidency and therefore it is now taking several months – they do promise that all requests for notes will be honored.
Apparently, you can request it on behalf of new parents too so if your friends/family don’t know about this, you could request a note and give it to them as a surprise!
Information on all the White House greetings available can be viewed here.
