  Here’s a great video about some of the things that the RNIB does that make a big difference to everyday life for people who are visually impaired and blind.  It’s a story about a lovely 8 year old girl called Tiri.

Feature in The NationalThanks to The National for featuring the stamps collection.  I was expecting the publicity to knock me out on wave of stamps when I opened my PO Box this week – unfortunately  they didn’t print the website details or where to send stamps!  Please help spread the word (via Facebook or sending your friends this link) and please keep sending your stamps so we can help the RNIB reach their target.  And if you’ve visited this site prompted by the article – thanks for your tenacity and perseverance!

Urgent appeal

January 27, 2010 at 5:07 am | Posted in RNIB | Leave a comment

I received an e-mail today from Terri Bush, a tireless and dedicated volunteer for the RNIB in charge of the stamps collection in the UK.   It contained an urgent appeal which I’d like to share with you:

Dear Friends,  I am writing to see if you can help us reach our £10,000 target from the stamp appeal by March 2010. We have only raised just over £6,000 so far and so our appeal really needs a big boost.

The RNIB website is www.rnib.org.uk which contains information of our work, fundraising, latest sight saving developments and lots more!

If everyone who read about our appeal passed on our details and they sent us stamps (even one!) we would hopefully not only raise much neded funds to provide over sixty services to blind and partially sighted people, but would also increase the awareness of our work.

Why not use the search engine ‘Everyclick’ so that you can raise money for us even while you are shopping! I have my own fundraisng page under RNIB Used stamp Appeal.  Thank you again for your support.  Best wishes,

Terri

So please keep sending your stamps to me – even as Terri says – it is only one or two.  Our efforts in the U.A.E. could help make her target.

It’s not too late to send seasonal stamps

I keep receiving belated Christmas cards in my PO Box and take great pleasure snipping the stamps off as I know they will benefit the RNIB.  Thank you to everyone who has sent stamps – they have arrived in the UAE from all over the world so are more valuable in raising money for people who are visually impaired.  Really appreciate your contributions – please send them or deliver them to me….and spread the word.  I’d like to make up a really nice parcel to send.

Image of child with a frank over his eyesRoyal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is the UK’s leading charity offering information, support and advice to over two million people with sight loss.

People in the UK and around the world are still losing their sight unnecessarily. RNIB campaign to eliminate avoidable sight loss and support research  into the causes and latest treatments of eye conditions.

We can raise much needed funds for the RNIB just by collecting stamps.

We can raise money from both British and overseas stamps. It doesn’t matter if they have already been used.  More money can be raised from overseas stamps. We also collect first day covers, presentation packs and albums.

Please read the section on “How to” to ensure that they are in the most useful condition and then deliver them:

By post to: Sally Prosser, Save stamps for charity, PO Box 75959, Dubai, U.A.E.

Or contact me via sending me a message using the form in the “About”  section for info on where you can deliver them to in Dubai.  TNT will then send them to the RNIB stamps collection centre –  they have generously donated this service free of charge.
