Collect stamps

For many, many years ABM has been accepting used postage stamps as part of our fundraising. Today this practice continues with our loyal supporters from the different dioceses around Australia sending us stamps on a regular basis. This represents millions of stamps and many, many hours of effort from a large number of Friends of ABM who collect, cut, sort and sell.

We also sometimes receive whole collections from stamp collectors and some of these collections prove to be very valuable when sold – a generous gift to ABM!

The stamps are trimmed (leaving about 1cm of envelope on each side) and sold to stamp dealers to be used in ‘mission mixture packs’. ABM would like to say A BIG THANK YOU to all our collectors and helpers for this tremendous effort and to encourage you all to keep collecting used stamps as the money raised goes towards our work in mission. 


Please send your stamps to:
