Sunday stamps: of children and for children
This Sunday the theme of Sunday stamps is 'of children and for children'.
Every year in November, Dutch school children pass along the houses to sell 'kinderpostzegels', 'children's stamps', which means both stamp sheets and postcards. I did so when I was young, and many years later, that is, last year, our daughter was old enough do so, too.
Above you can see the envelope in which she gathered the orders, of our neighbours and family (and me, of course), and when ready to deliver, she went along the houses again to deliver the stamps and postcards.
The stamps have an increased rate, and the money earned goes to children's welfare projects.
So in all those many years, many children's stamp sheets have been issued.
Here I'll show only a few (some of them are not complete because I used them, of course).
