“I am not a stamp collector but I have been collecting stamps with the idea that some organization can use them for fundraising. Over Christmas, I got a few more from overseas and, of course, Canadian stamps. Now, I don’t know what organization in Sooke can use the stamps or who to contact. Also, what is the best way to remove stamps from envelopes to get maximum value for the stamps?”
