A Birthday Request You Can Help!

Beth Catlin, of Mechanicsburg, MD, loves to send birthday cards. She mails nearly four thousand a year...

from the list in her mind.

Beth has trouble meeting everyday challenges -- she does it best by keeping to a schedule, including her work at the S. Wilson Pollock Center for Industrial Training. For more than four decades, this woman has mailed homemade birthday cards to friends, family and people whose addresses she's gathered. She keeps their names, birth dates and addresses by memory only.

Beth's birthday is Sept. 22. Won't you return the favor, and send her a birthday card this week? Mail it to:

Beth Catlin
c/o S. Wilson Pollock Center for Industrial Training
262 Silver Spring Road
Mechanicsburg, PA 17050

I have a special tie with Beth, even though we've never met. We are birthday sisters: same day, month and year.

Read more about Beth in this profile -- or check a recent issue of Reader's Digest. (I think she was profiled July 2009.) P.S. She likes stamps, too.
