Here’s how you can help children with your used Christmas stamps this year

Melissa Carton

Now that Christmas day has come and gone the post-Christmas clean up begins.

Before you throw out all the envelopes left over from your Christmas cards though, give them a second glance and if they have stamps keep them.

Why? Well, this year you can help one of Ireland’s most beloved children’s charities with nothing more than your used stamps.

The Irish Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Children need your used postage stamps to raise vital funds for their charity.

The national charity is funded through fundraising and through funding provided by government agencies and provides services such as it’s national listening service Childline which takes over 380,000 contacts every year by phone, text and web chat.

By sending them as many of your used stamps that you can find you will be helping them to keep this service along with their many others active and available for children in distress.

All you have to do is cut any stamps you have from your envelope, leaving 2cm of paper all around the stamp. Then you can send your used stamps to:

I.S.P.C.C., 29, Lr Baggot Street, Dublin 2.
