Children Stamps 2013 from the Netherlands – Let Children Learn

November 4th, 2013

The 2013 Children's Welfare Stamps were issued by PostNL. This year's Children's Welfare Stamps were photographed and designed by Anton Corbijn. Earlier this year, on behalf of PostNL and the Foundation for Children's Welfare Stamps Netherlands, Corbijn visited an educational project in Ethiopia to take photographs for the new series of Children's Welfare Stamps.

The stamps highlight the contrast between children who attend school and children who have to work. Three children play a leading role on the stamp sheetlet, whereby each of the three is photographed both at school and at work.

Primary school children in years 7 and 8 will hit the streets to sell the Children's Welfare Stamps. The proceeds from the Children's Welfare Stamps will be used to help vulnerable children in the Netherlands and abroad. PostNL has issued Children's Welfare Stamps to raise money for child welfare projects since 1924. The surcharge is €0.30 per stamp.
