Size: [2 1/2 inches tall X 1 1/2 inches wide] laser cut patch

Collect stamps off envelopes and give back to kids around the world. 

Save your stamps to earn this patch. Save 8 stamps and you earn this patch. The funds assist children around the world in providing them with books printed in their language. (Activity books and reading material requested by the teacher. From Kindergarten to 12th grade.) This patch is a remembrance of your assistance.

1. Earning the Patch: If you are working on the postage stamp project as an individual then you will need to collect 8 stamps to earn the postage stamp patch. Average groups of 10 would need to collect 80 stamps, or 8 each.

Ask parents or companies to collect the stamps for you at local businesses. Then you can sort and trim them at home.

Some basic steps to follow:

2. Saving the stamps: Please leave a border around the stamp of the background paper it was placed on. Enough to make sure all fringe and borders are not clipped. They can use damaged stamps too!

3.Metered stamps: No metered mail stamps are accepted, only actual stamps.

4. Stamps: All designs are accepted especially Limited Edition, bulk rate, non-profit Christmas, Love, and Foreign stamps.

5. Organizing Stamps: Simply place the stamps in an envelope or Ziploc bag for delivery. If you would like to sort your stamps as a group ahead of time, please place the commemorative stamps in one bag, regular flag issue in a different bag, and foreign stamps in a third bag. (A commemorative stamp is a postage stamp that special released that year. It is usually issued to honor or commemorate a place, holiday, event, person, or object.) (A regular issue stamp example is a flag stamp.)

6. FOREIGN STAMPS: IIf you are collecting foreign stamps, please do not trim the stamps. The stamps are worth more with the cancellation still attached to the stamp.
