LWR Stamporee

The goal of the Lutheran World Relief Stamporee is to support LWR's Project Comfort, which provides funding for the shipping of goods to those in need around the world. All LWML societies are encouraged to collect and save cancelled postage stamps and send them to the district stamp chairman. To download an information sheet about the LWR Stamporee program click here.

Here are a few pointers about saving stamps:
• Buy and use commemorative stamps, since they are worth more than common stamps.
• Save all cancelled stamps.
• Place stamps on envelope in the upper right hand corner, allowing 1/4 inch from each edge.
• Stamps need not be trimmed or removed from envelopes.
• IF trimming from envelopes, leave at least 1/4 inch around stamp. Sorting into categories or weighing is not necessary. Do not soak off!

The Lutheran World Relief (LWR) Bulletin contains all the information you will need to prepare your quilts and kits for the ingathering. Follow packing instructions carefully. Shipping labels can be printed using Avery shipping labels 8168 or by printing on paper and taping securely to each box. The LWR Ingathering Report needs to be completed and brought to the collection site and keep a copy for your records.
