Postage stamps create added value for culture and social projects
To celebrate the centenary of Pro Senectute, Swiss Post issued a special stamp with surcharge which honoured the organization’s commitment. The stamp depicts the dialogue between old and young. The exchange of memories, values and experience is illustrated with symbols.
This is just one of many examples of how the sale of special stamps with surcharge can help do good: by issuing these stamps, Swiss Post directly supports organizations with a cultural or social background, such as Pro Juventute or Pro Patria. Seemingly small amounts have a big impact for the institutions and projects that benefit, including language exchange programmes for young people, the children’s circus Robinson, and Limita, the office for the prevention of sexual exploitation of people with disabilities. In 2018, Swiss Music Archives, an association that works to preserve Swiss popular culture and make it accessible to the public, also received support.
