Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger) and Jay Silverheels (Tonto) for Christmas
Seals. They were introduced in this country by social worker and activist  
Emily Bissell in 1907. She had read about the use of Christmas Seals in
Denmark to help fight tuberculosis.

    Emily Bissell’s introduction to the US of the Christmas Seal must of had a “sweeping” (sorry, I couldn’t resist)
    effect on us as we still use them today! See link below.
