Stamps for Bethel

"Stamps for Bethel!" Thousands of people think of this when they open their post. They collect envelopes and stamps, then send them to the v. Bodelschwingh Foundation Bethel. Stamp donations are not limited to individuals. Parishes, kindergartens, schools and companies also support Bethel's charitable work in this way. Over 400 parcels, packages and letters containing stamps arrive at Bethel every working day – sometimes even including valuable collections.

Bethel is delighted to receive postage stamps from all over the world. This is because it gives people with disabilities meaningful employment in the workshops. The stamps are cut out, sorted by country, then packaged for sale. Stamp enthusiasts usually buy stamps by the kilo. One stamp package will contain a colourful mix from all over the world, another will contain stamps from Germany, and others feature collections of specific motifs. With a bit of luck, you might even find a treasure among the stamps.
