Stamps for Missions
Since 1997 Lutheran Women in Mission across the Northern Illinois District have been clipping, sorting and sending in cancelled postage stamps. You can, too. Just send your trimmed cancelled postage stamps to us or bring them to any LWML NID event. Then, we send them to auction in batches for sale by weight to collectors and club auctions. 90% of the money raised goes towards our mission grants.
Stamps should be cut off envelopes leaving a 1/4 inch edge around the stamps.
Flag and Bell stamps should not be saved.
Postcards are welcome. Please save the whole card. Do not just send the stamp. Cutting the stamp off postcards makes them lose their value.
Stamps in albums, foreign and commemorative stamps are especially welcome.
Bring stamps to district events.
Thank you for helping.
Non-LWML’ers please send stamps to: LWML NID, 2301 South Wolf Road, Hillside, IL 60162.
