How to write a Letter to the President and the First Lady

Updated on October 2, 2011

Here's from experience, just a little under a year ago I had an idea about the social issues concerning childhood obesity in the united states. So I'd written a letter to the President and the First Lady Obama. Whithin a month and a half, I'd received a letter back from the First Lady herself, Michelle Obama with her concern about the issue as well and what she was doing to help out the situation. So I'm going to give you a step by step on how to write to the White House and who knows, there's a 50/50 chance that you might get a letter back. Depends on what you write about.

First, think about what you want to write. It has to be about something that's of great concern and that all will benefit from it. Second, once you have the idea, put it in a business format. Make sure that your name and address is on the upper left corner of the paper. Third, begin your letter with; 'Dear Mr. President and First Lady'. You want to make sure that you're addressing the letter to both. Might have a better chance at a response if you include them both.

Once you're done with typing the letter, double check (or even triple check) your spelling and grammar to make sure that everything makes sense and then print the letter out should you have a printer of course. Finally, get an envelope, a stamp and mail it to the following address:

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW

Washington, DC 20500

Make sure that it's a legit concern or something that you think that they might be interested in listening to. Don't wait for a return, just let time pass by. Before you know it, it'll come when you'd least expected. It happened to me. Once again, it's important to check the spelling and grammar. Hope this helped you all out. Thanks for reading and good luck.

How well do you think President Obama is doing his job?
