I have misplaced the address to the lady who collects used postage stamps for a cause.  I think the cause might have been MS...    If you have it and could pm it to me I would greatly appreciate it. 

Thanks

Lynn

Two of us  tried all last year to track her down and couldn't.  I do know one RAOK participant who collects them for a senior citizen project though. Let me know if you want her name and address.

I think I may have found her.  I sent a PM to be sure and when I find out I'll pass along the info.  I think she
collected them for MS, but I could be mistaken.

I have the info for anyone who wants it.  Here's what I heard from Linda B. (herbalhorse)

 

Chris, It was me who was collecting used stamps for MS. I still can use the stamps but the designated charity (for stamps)changes from year to year. My organization supports many charities and continues to support MS with other fundraisers. If you would like to send stamps the money would go to a good cause

 The commemorative stamps are worth 10 times as much as the ordinary and forever stamps such as flags. We trim around the stamps 1/4 inch and they are sold by the pound. (You don't need to trim them)

You can feel free to PM me for her address or PM her directly.
