I recently learned that you can request a birth greeting from the White House, signed by the President and First Lady, within a year of your baby’s birth. Luckily, I found out in time to request one for Alexa.
Well, we finally received our card and – political affiliations aside – the card makes a pretty awesome baby keepsake. But I am a bit bummed I didn’t know about it for Max.
There are several options to request a birth greeting:
1. Call the White House at: (202)456-1414
2. Send a letter or birth announcement to:
President Barack Obama (or current President)
Greetings Office Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C. 20500
3. Fill out the web form: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/presidential-greetings-request
You will need to provide your full name, phone number, and mailing address and the baby’s full name and date of birth.
The birth greeting can only be requested after the baby is born.
