The Need to Sacrifice

War Savings Stamps

The Defense Savings Campaign, was in charge of War Bond and War Saving Stamps sales. It was the largest campaign during World War II. The campaign sued several groups to reach out to a number of different groups in the United States; factories and businesses with Payroll Savings, children and schools with Savings Stamps, and War Bond. In 1942, the campaign was handed over to a District Coordinator who promoted the sale of War Bonds, and emphasized payroll plans. This individual often traveled to different districts to work one-on-one with local War Bond officers.
