On Tuesday, September 25, 2012, His Royal Highness Prince Willem-Alexander of Oranje was in Wassenaar to participate in the launch of Kinderpostzegels 2012 (Children’s Stamp).
According to the official site for Kinderpostzegels:
“Beginning on Wednesday, September 26, more than 200,000 school children (aged 10-12) will sell stamps, cards and children’s bandaids, door-to-door. The proceeds of the campaign will go towards creating safe homes for vulnerable children. The number of children who are not able to live with their parents is growing with each year. In the Netherlands, approx. 44,000 children and young people were placed in out- of- home- care. More than half of these children live in foster homes.”
The sale of the stamps are also available for purchase online. If you are interested and would like to learn more about Kinderpostzegels 2012 please visit their official website here.
