Purpose: Collect used postage stamps to raise funds for special programs.
Since commencing in 1991, this project has raised almost $90,000 to support a range of projects for people in need.
Beneficiaries of Stamp Sales
The simple act of saving and recycling something small will bring major changes to the lives of others. Please ask all friends, family and colleagues to be involved in our “Philatelic Garbology”.
Where to deliver the Stamps
All stamps can be taken to the quarterly presidents’ meetings for collection.
Other drop off points are through Rotarians Patrick Hartley & Brian Foley.
However, if your club does take up the challenge and you are able, a monthly return would be most helpful as this will spread the workload.
How to sort the Stamps
If stamps can be sorted into the categories below, this again would lessen the workload. However, Carrol is still happy to receive the stamps whichever way they come.
1. Low value – up to 70 cents. No more than a 2cm border on single paper.
2. High value stamps – 70 cents and over again, a 2cm border on double paper
3. International foreign stamps
