Hi everyone, it’s Walter here! Wow the Christmas cards are already rolling in and we want to say thanks to everyone we have received one from. Did you know that the stamps that come with all those cards can help the Retired Greyhound Trust across the pond? Yes they can! So we are asking you to Save Those Stamps! and send them to us.
You may remember that last year another blogger collected stamps for a charity in United Kingdom. She is no longer blogging but I didn’t want all our stamps to go to waste so I decided to organize the effort this year. I was curious and did a Google search to see if any charities in the United States collected stamps but I couldn’t find any so I will be sending all the stamps I get across the pond.
I will be collecting stamps to send to the Retired Greyhound Trust (RGT) in the UK. Every kilogram (about 2.2 lbs.) of used stamps collected can be sold in aid of the RGT. Their target is £1,5000 ($2345 USD) which is the cost of kenneling a dog for a year.
If you are on Angel Jazzi’s mailing list then you should already have our home address if not then just leave me a comment asking for the mailing address and I will email it to you. Save up all your stamps and after Christmas just put them in an envelope and send them to us (make sure you have enough postage in case it weighs more than one ounce).
If it is easier for you to send your stamps directly to RGT their address is:
Retired Greyhound Trust
1-4 Park Terrace
Lets shower those retired greyhounds with a ton of stamps…well okay a ton would be a bit too expensive to send but wouldn’t it be great if we had 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) to send them? Please feel free to grab the Save Those Stamps! icon above and promote it on your blog by linking back to this post.
Now before I leave you I have to show you how the Christmas Card Count is going so far this year.
Mom has our ribbons up next to the fireplace and the white board is already showing that we are kicking butt on the peeps.
So don’t forget to Save Those Stamps! and send them to us after the holidays are over. We can’t wait to see how big a pile we get.
