Opbrengst Kinderpostzegelactie 2013 is 11,6 miljoen euro

This year's children's welfare stamps campaign has raised 11.6 million Euros, thanks to the efforts of 200,000 children in the Netherlands. The Foundation for Children’s Welfare Stamps will use the money to help as many vulnerable children as possible to have a better future.

Yme Pasma of PostNL presented the first prints of the children’s welfare stamps to Dutch musician Henny Vrienten during the seminar 'Let Children Learn'. Vrienten had placed the first order for stamps this year. Starting on Wednesday, 6 November, the children will start to deliver the orders to their customers.

Yme Pasma, PostNL Director Consumer Market: "This is an amazing result by all of the children who went door-to-door this year. We are proud of these unique stamps with photography by Anton Corbijn and the excellent cooperation with the Foundation for Children’s Welfare Stamps Netherlands."
