Sammy Stamp

According to TheAge.com, hundreds of people collect stamps for the Sammy Stamp project in Australia. Reporter Sharon Gray goes behind the scenes and finds out that "the usefulness of stamps doesn’t end at the mailbox."

Begun in 1977 and it has raised over $4 million dollars in profits which have been distributed to a wide range of good causes. These include a water project in New Guinea, emergency relief for the homeless and unemployed in Mildura, and a new aircraft engine in the outback.

Send your used stamps to Sammy Stamp, 130 Little Collins Street, Melbourne 3000.
