A Stamp for Every Holocaust Child Lost

Reporter Christine Igo Freeman writes on Massachusetts' Foxboro Reporter website that the Foxborough Regional Charter School has collected 1.5 million stamps to honor the 1,500,000 children killed in the Holocaust.

According to Freeman the schools goal is to collect 11 million stamps.  Six million Jews and five million other victims of Nazi aggression in Europe before and during World War II in including 1.5 million children.

The Holocaust Stamps Project began in 2009 and is one of the Community Service Learning (CSL) classes that students in grades 5-12 take in addition to their regular classes.

If you would like to participate in helping the school reach its goal, send your stamps to Holocaust Stamp Project, Foxborough Regional Charter School, 131 Central Street, Foxboro, MA 02035. If possible, sending them trimmed is greatly appreciated and even better if you can provide a count of how many you are donating.
