Happy Birthday Greetings from the White House or Governeour?

Interested in requesting a birthday or anniversary greeting from the White House, Kansas Governor, or the Kansas Department on Aging for an older relative or friend? Read the requirements (it's easier than you think!).
Please note that all greeting requests must be submitted in writing preferably sent by fax to 202-456-2461 or by mail to:

The White House
Attn: Greetings Office
Washington, D.C. 20502-0039

White House Web Mail (Off Site - Not on the White House Grounds)
Please review these guidelines carefully before mailing your request to the White House.
U.S. Citizens Only. The White House will send greetings to United States citizens only, for special occasions as outlined below.
Advance Notice Required. Your request must be received six (6) weeks in advance of the event date. We make every effort to honor every request, but we cannot guarantee a greeting if this guideline is not met. (Greetings are generally not sent after the event date, except for wedding congratulations and newborn acknowledgments.)
Anniversary Greetings. Anniversary greetings are extended only to those couples who are celebrating their 50th (and subsequent) wedding anniversary.
Birthday Greetings. White House Birthday Greetings will be sent only to individuals 80 years of age and above.
Other Greetings. A limited number of special occasions other than birthdays and anniversaries exist for which the Greetings Office will send appropriate recognition to United States citizens. These occasions include important events such as:
Wedding (send your request after the event)
Baby's Birth (must be born during the Bush Administration; send request only after baby's birth)
Eagle Scout Award
Girl Scout Gold Award
Bar/Bat Mitzvah or equivalent occasion
Required Information. Please include the following in your request:
name and home address of honoree(s)
form of address (Mr., Ms., Mrs., Dr., Miss, etc.)
exact date of occasion (month, day, year)
age (birthdays) or number of years of marriage
your (the requestor's) name and daytime phone number
any specific mailing instructions if other than to honoree's address
Wedding (Include couple's married names and current or new address)
Baby's Birth (Include baby's date of birth and full names and address of baby and parents)
When to Expect Your Greeting. In most cases, greetings will be mailed from the White House approximately ten (10) days prior to the event.
