On Saturday, December 7, 1907 Christmas seals were 
sold for the first time by Emily Bissell of the American
Red Cross in Wilmington, Delaware. She barrowed the
money from friends to print the first 50,000 Seals and
got permission from the Wilmington postmaster to sell
them in lobby of the post office.
