"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.
