Stamps for Freedom

Wondering what to do with your used stamps?
The Canadian Bible Society collects donations of used stamps.

Here’s how our Stamps for Freedom Program works:

  • Stamps collected from donations across Canada are combined to create charity boxes and are sold to stamp collectors and vendors.
  • The revenue generated from the stamps allows CBS to purchase Bibles for the Canadian prison ministry.

10 lbs of stamps
= approx 6 Bibles for distribution

Donate your used stamps today to help provide the Key to Freedom Bible to men and women in prison.

Instructions for collecting

  • Keep the stamp on the envelope
  • Cut out the stamp leaving a 1/4 inch border around the entire stamp
  • Ask your church congregation to collect their stamps
  • Make a box as a collection vestibule
  • Ask to put an announcement in the bulletin about the program and to let them know how to collect and where the drop off location is
  • Ask the groups within the church (i.e. Women’s Groups, Seniors Groups, Sunday School) to collect as a special ministry
  • We also accept personal collections that are already in books, binders, etc.
  • If mailing to CBS please ask for Stamps to be put on the package vs. the electronic metering – we will collect those stamps and add them to the boxes.

Stamps – from Buffalo to Toronto

SM* drove down from Buffalo, NY to donate 12 boxes and one bag full of used stamps for CBS’ Stamps for Freedom Program. SM collects the stamps from 60 plus church groups called the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. She has collected and donated stamps before, but ever since the pandemic started, she couldn’t. Now since the border has opened, she was able to bring the stamps to CBS.
