NEVER THROW AWAY USED STAMPS
Postmaster Ditlef Frantzen in Nesbyen established TUBFRIM in 1928. The aim was to collect and sell used stamps and use the proceeds to aid the eradication of tuberculosis among Norwegian children.
Launched more than 70 years ago, Tubfrim has helped thousands of children with disabillities. Today the profits are used to help children with handicaps and youth in Norway, and to finance the efforts to eradicate tuberculosis.
Several hundred children with handicaps benefits from the fund raised by TUBFRIM - every year!
Tubfrim, founded by Norwegian postmaster Ditlef Frantzen, raised 1,500
NOK in its first year. Currently, over 4,000 pounds of stamps are sold
for more than 500,000 NOK (more than $57,000 U.S.). Sons of Norway
members have been strengthening the Tubfrim program for more than 40
years, and currently account for more than 20% of the profits. As a
result, Sons of Norway has come to the aid of countless children with handicaps. Vegas Viking Lodge 6-152 has consistently donated over 200
pounds of stamps annually. With the help from many donors from all over the country, (even as far away as Canada) Vegas Viking was able to send 381 lb in 2010, our best year ever. A grand total of 2,917 lb of used stamps since 1996. 200+ Pounds of Stamps Collected for Needy Children as of October 2013
WON'T YOU HELP? TO RAISE MORE MONEY, MORE STAMPS ARE NEEDED
