Charity

I send stamps to a charity called Tubfrim here in Norway. They accept both used (soaked and on paper) and unused stamps as long as the stamps aren't damaged. Tubfrim also wants used telephone cards (credit card size) and used postcards.

For those living in USA: stamps, phonecards and postcards can be sent to the Sons of Norway lounges and 2 Norwegian Sea Man's Churches.

The address is:
Tubfrim
Postboks 1
3541 Nesbyen

Tubfrim

I'll have to see if I can find an updated US address for them: we had one in Nevada, but I think they stopped collecting.

I don't know which Sons of Norway lodges you can send stamps to. But maybe Tubfrim knows? I can check.


As for addresses to other Norwegian Seamen's Churches around the world, click in the city names here to find the address;

If there isn't any Norwegian Seamen's Church in your country, you might check if there's a Norwegian Embassy or Consulate in your country. Most Norwegian Embassies and Consulates send stamps to Tubfrim according to their website.

It doesn't look like we have the Sons of Norway here, but we do have a Norwegian consul on my island. And we can mail to the churches in California - it's a lot cheaper than sending to Europe! Thanks for your help.

The link you provided here gives an error for that specific page. I can visit the website of the Sisters of the Holy Cross, but can't find a mention of receiving stamps. Are they still willing to receive stamps, even from abroad, or is it no use to send stamps out to them?

Try this: https://www.cscsisters.org/---/#stamp

They are in the US and specifically mention that they are interested in foreign stamps. I haven't tried contacting them yet to make sure they are still collecting, but there is an e-mail address at the bottom of the page.

Thank you, I'll look for the e-mail address and see if I can be of help.

So I'm *always* interested in stamps (soaked/unsoaked/used/new/US/other), and if someone is looking for anything in particular I can try to fulfill requests.

Also, anyone with the address of a charity collecting postage stamps in the US, please let me know. We send to the Bethel program in Germany ( http://www.briefmarken-bethel.de/english/ ) but the postage is very expensive...

Mom has one friend in NSW who occasionally sends Australian stamps, but we don't get as many from NZ.

Mom collects everything, but also has a collection of music-related stamps. I have a tiny little collection of origami-related stamps.

gaboyd: you didn't say what kinds of stamps *you're* looking for...

Mainly UK but a few different countries too. None are soaked. Could perhaps get another together in the New Year too. I will keep a look out to what is being posted and hopefully can send out mid Jan.

I have a lot of damaged stamps & definitives I've been accumulating over the years for "someday I'll make..." projects that rarely get off the ground. I'm more than willing to share, if anyone could use them. PM me!

I could send out two envelopes with about 20 stamps each.

Today, January 25, if you're wondering how long they took. They are lovely and Mom is very pleased. The punk(?) sheep postcard is hilarious.

...I don't collect stamps so I don't know. Occasionally, I receive a package with stamps on it. I would like to start keeping them to pass on to others who would enjoy them. How do you prefer them collected off the package? Just use scissors and cut out a big square around them?

I can only speak for myself. I send stamps to charity. THey ask that one just cut around the stamps with scissors, and leave 1 cm/0,5 inch margin arround the stamps to avoid damage to the stamps. So I just just of the stamps with approximately that margin and send them to the charity.

Not a silly question. 0.25-0.5 inches around the stamp is ideal...if in doubt, go bigger...but at the edge of the envelope that's not always do-able. As long as the stamp isn't damaged it's fine. Sometimes we get stamps that have been accidentally cut because they have a lot of white background. :(

I just received 2 packages from Finland and all of the stamps are free of any markings on them, even though they're on the package. So maybe they are still usable?
There are also 3 stamps related to music on here (nightwish, children of bodom, hanoi rocks). Would anyone like these?

Some bookcrossers know that I organize workships with my students in order to imtroduce them in stamp collecting. I give them an envelope with stamps at the begining of each workship, so I always need stamps, used, on the envelope, on paper, new, duplicates. They work with these stamps.
If somebody wants to colaborate with my students just PM me and I give my address.
Thank you

not soaked to send out. Stamps are Dutch, local but also from mail I received from people all over the world.
Will send worldwide, preferably all in one go.

I accept stamps in order to introduce children in stamp collecting. I give them an envelope with stamps to begin their collection. For this reason I always accept any kind of stamps, used, new, glued on paper, any country, all of them are welcome.

Enjoy weekend

If you let me know how many grandchildren you collect for, I can see if I can provide one of each I send for all of them.

My dad passed away a little over 3 years ago. He had a huge amount of stamps, sorted and put away at the right place in books (his collection), but also books with doubles, triples, tenfolds to sort AND of course a huge amount of unsoaked ones still to be processed.

My mother doesn't want to throw these unsorted and unsoaked stamps away and asked me, if I would share them with charities, collectors and/or people who use them for children to start a collection.

If you are interested, please send me a PM with the cause you're asking them for and the address that I can send the stamps to.

Thank you Boekentrol, the stamps arrived this week and I just wanted to thank you. They will be going to the grandchildren soon.
