Here is one that could well be used today. "KEEP CALIFORNIA GREEN"
Keep your eye out for a "Keep America Great Again" cancel. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before it hits the mail system.
Note: I mistyped the above slogan. It should read "Make America Great Again". I was, of course poking fun at all the "red hats" of your leader. In my opinion America has always been and will always be great. My sister was living in Nebraska for years and my daughter lives in Texas. She thinks it's great there. A little hot compared to here but still great nevertheless. That's why we have air conditioners.

Greetings Mr. Butterfly, . You are correct in the assumption that the slogan pertains to Community Chest. . The National Association of Community Chests, which is today the United Way of America, was established in 1927, and in 1947 gave their first Red Feather Award to former General Electric president Gerard C. Swope. According to a 1953 Life magazine blurb, the symbol of a feather has stood for virtue and good deeds since the days of ancient Egypt. The National Association of Community Chests, which encouraged contributions to help those less fortunate than oneself, gave the red feather award to those who donated to their community chests. . The slogan "Wear Your Red Feather Proudly" means to be proud of the fact that you have helped others through your contribution. . Respectfully,

kacyds, Like you, I can remember seeing these as a kid but I couldn’t tell you how long it’s been since the last time I saw one.
