Please save the canceled stamps that come on the envelopes you receive, because they can be sold to stamp collectors. One of the projects of our American Baptist Women’s Ministries group is collecting these stamps. They are given to a local chapter of Sons of Norway. The chapter then sells these stamps and the money goes to an organization in Norway called TUBFRIM, which was formed in 1928, and is owned by the Norwegian Health Association (Nasjonalforeningen for folkehelsen). The money from the sales is used to help children and youth who have disabilities or handicaps.

You can be a part of this ministry by bringing your canceled stamps to the church. Please put them in the envelope marked “STAMPS on the Information Table in the Lobby of the Sanctuary. Also please be sure that there is about a 1/2-inch margin on all four sides of the stamps you donate.
