Yes, the President will send a personally signed greeting card, free of charge, to married US couples celebrating their 50th, 60th, 70th or later wedding anniversary.
How to request your Presidential Anniversary Greeting Card:
To request your Anniversary Greeting Card signed by the President, you need to be US Citizens and you can place your request in one of the following three ways:
1. Submit your request through the office of your U.S. Representative or either one of your U.S. Senators. Click on the “Constituents Services” or similar section on the website and find your representative or senator. If nothing is listed, email your Senator through his/her website email form. Write clearly that you want “Presidential Greetings” as otherwise you may receive a greeting from your Senator instead.
2. Write to the White House with your request to The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20500.
3. Request your greetings from the White House via the White House Correspondence Office’s fax number — 202-456-2461.
Make sure to include the following information with your request:
- Who will be receiving the greeting.
- Address of where to send the greeting.
- How the greeting should be addressed (Mr. and Mrs., Bob and Mary, etc).
- Date of the wedding or anniversary including year.
- Number of years of marriage the couple is celebrating.
- Your name and phone number.
