IF YOU CAN HELP A LITTLE WE CAN CHANGE A LOT
Hello my name is Steve, Founder and charity fundraiser of StampOutMND, Based in Alsager on the Cheshire / Staffordshire boarder,
At the end August 2013 my relationship with my partner came to an end so i moved in with my parents until i got my life back on track, My Mother was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in July 2007.
By January 2014 i rented a flat in the area, but as i was furnishing the flat my father who was my mothers full time carer became extremely ill as he was diagnosed with Mesothelioma an asbestos related cancer back in early August 2013, He worked for a petroleum company back in the 1960's,
So after a family meeting i became my mothers full time carer, From there my father was teaching me how to look after her, But very quickly became a carer for both my mother & father,
My father passed eight months later on his birthday 5th April 2014 aged a young eighty three.
We had carers in place that washed and dressed my mother and father where as i did everything else.
But it soon became reality very hard work, so we got the carers to do more and my sister came on board too,
From there i kept the flat on and had and still do have Mondays six hours, Wednesdays twelve hours and Fridays twenty four hours respite, this also is hard sometimes but you really have to get your life organised and since mother went into respite care home for two weeks we returned with a blank piece of paper and all is now well and organised.
In 2015 i wanted to help find a cure for this awful terminal disease that has a general life span of three to five years.
So StampOutMND was born in June 2015 by starting social media groups working on it ever day getting the word out there on what i was doing. soon raising June 2015/16 £687.30* June 2016/17 £845.36* upto date funds raised updated regular and can be viewed by scrolling to the top of this page.
So What Is This Site All About ?
Recycling used postage stamps is a great way to raise funds for the charity. The price for stamps collected has increased recently to almost quadruple the value of ten years ago. Charities across Britain are benefiting from this, and you can help.
With your help collecting used postage stamps, envelopes, postcards etc, when i have a bulk amount they are sent away for processing, in return i am sent a cheque which then goes to MNDA.
The company that the stamps are sent to sorts them into categories and sets then sells them onto stamp collectors worldwide.
Stamp recycling is a very easy way to help charities. Simply collect the postage stamps and once you have collected and envelope or jiffy bag maybe shoe box or so full, send to Click Here
We are paid £7.50 for every kilo (16kg = £120) of donated stamps sent to us. They are then sold online worldwide to stamp collectors.
This is a solo venture therfor would be of the greatest help if the stamps could be carefully clipped, leaving plenty of room
[5 – 10mm] around the stamp.
This will increase the value of the stamps to the charity, making them more money!
MND is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, leaving a person trapped inside a failing body. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and eventually breathe.
By recycling you can raise vital funds for the MND Association:
£25 pays for annual storage of 35 DNA samples for future research.
£50 buys three specially adapted cutlery sets. For someone with MND, it’s more than just a cutlery set; it’s the dignity of being able to feed yourself.
£100 provides vital information to ten people newly diagnosed with MND.
£250 funds an MND expert researcher for two days to help ensure our essential research can continue.
