stamp project

Ladies, it's not a fundraising project but an actual project that we can do from all over Florida as Cyber Members.  The Foxborough Regional Charter School is collecting cancelled postage stamps.  The goal is to collect over 11 million, each representing a victim of the Holocaust.  What a true learning experience to help these students visualize the enormity of the loss of human life.  The stamps are then made into mosaic artwork.  Hope you agree it's worthwhile for us to help....just send them directly to the address below and email me how many you have donated.  I will be happy to report the project for our club!  Jolie

PLEASE KEEP SAVING STAMPS! If possible, sending them to us TRIMMED would be wonderful, and even BETTER if you can provide a count of how many you are donating.  We welcome donations of cancelled stamps from individuals as well as businesses, anywhere in the world !

  1. Thank you, Ladies!
    As of Oct. 23,2014 almost 4.3 MILLION donated postage stamps had been counted by students and community volunteers. This is about 39% of the 11,000,000 goal. The more people participate - and spread the word, like your wonderful post - the sooner the goal will be realized!

    Please do visit the website to become more informed about this important educational initiative that is teaching tolerance, acceptance, and respect for diversity through the study of this dark period in world history.
