President Reagan Sends His Dollars to March of Dimes
DEAR ABBY: Although I’ve en joyed your column for many years and consider myself a fan, I haven’t often had the occasion to sit down and pen a “Dear Abby” letter of my own. But like most of your readers, I have some hope I’ll see my message in print anyway.
As a result of your plea in a recent column, I received an avalanche of birthday greetings. I deeply appreciate this outpouring of friendship and good will. The response by your readers to your request was truly heartwarming, and I hope they’ll understand why I cannot possibly thank them all individually for helping make this Feb. 6 especially memorable. Please pass on to your readers my gratitude for their many cards and kind words.
I am also grateful to you for taking the opportunity to encourage public support for the important work of the March of Dimes. As you know, January 1985 was March of Dimes Birth Defects Prevention Month. In honor of this observance, I urged all Americans to support the efforts of this organization in the battle against birth defects. The response to this call—especially as shown by the mail we received at the White House—has been truly outstanding.
Although we cannot acknowledge the many writers who sent contributions to the White House for the March of Dimes, I want you and them to know that we have turned over their donations to the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation for use in its research program.
Your readers can best help the March of Dimes in the future by sending donations directly to: March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation, PO. Box ‘2000, White Plains, N Y 10602. This will alleviate any delay in those contributions reaching the March of Dimes, and it will also solve the tremendous logistical problems that arise when monetary items of any kind are sent to my attention at the White House. Your readers’ cooperation in this request will make my stuff much happier, and it will also allow the March of Dimes to get to work immediately on the vitul activities your readers are supporting.
Thanks again for ult the birthday greetings, and God bless you and your many readers.
DEAR MR. PRESIDENT: Thank you for your gracious letter. The March of Dimes is profoundly grateful to you for making this year’s March of Dimes the most successful since its goal has been the prevention of birth defects—our nation’s No. I child health problem.
DEAK ABBY: I feel great! I sent a check to the president for the March of Dimes. I didn’t send a dollar, I sent five—one for me, and four more for others who can’t afford to.

DEAR ABBY: I’m 82 now, but I remember when Eddie Cantor asked people to send a dime to President Franklin Roosevelt for the March of Dimes in honor of his birthday. I sent my dime—in those days all it took was a 2-cent postage stamp.
