What do you do with your old stamps?
What do you do with your old stamps? Do you collect old and used stamps? Or does everything go straight in the bin? I have got in the habit of keeping a snap and lock bag in a drawer, so whenever my mail comes I can snip off the stamp and collect them in the bag. When the bag is full I can then forward it on to those in need. There are agencies that are looking for used stamps. They are indeed a useful commodity to somebody.
The Uniting Church in SA is appealing for used stamps to be delivered or sent to UCA Church Office as stocks are running very low. Please ask any offices, doctor's surgeries or businesses in your area to save their stamps. Funds raised help South Pacific School Aid Inc. send used books to South Pacific Islands, Thailand, Philippines and many other countries in need.
