Tubfrim

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am a pensioner, so I have a lot of spare time. I use this time in helping handicapped people, mostly through the local branch of the Norwegian Revmatiker Forbund (Rheumatoid Arthritis), here in Nesbyen, where I am Deputy Chairman. I am deeply interested in handicapped people obtaining their proper civil rights.

 

"TUBFRIM" - An organisation in Nesbyen, who collects used postage stamps, sorts and packets them. The finished product is then sold; the money acquired is distributed for the benefit of handicapped children. Owing to the spread of modern technology, fax, e-mail etc, fewer stamps are being used, consequently fewer are being sent to Tubfrim. The ultimate sufferers are the children. . Even with fewer stamps being sent in Tubfrim enjoyed record sales in 1998.

All the work is done on a voluntary basis. In 1998 Tubfrim was able to distirbute to handicapped children's oganisations in Norway the sum of 475,000Nk (approx $60,000), not bad for an organisation that has four unpaid helpers and a manager.

Save every stamp that you can, together with used telephone cards that are fast becoming collectors items.

Send to - Tubfrim, 3540 Nesbyen, Norway.

Or you can send to your local 'Sons of Norway'…they have an arrangement where they can forward packages to ' TUBFRIM *
