从“黑便士”、“大龙票”趣谈集邮文化(5月26日)
世界上第一枚邮票——英国“黑便士”于1840年5月6日正式开始使用。邮票采用维多利亚女王头像为图案,并采用当时最先进的雕刻版印刷工艺和难以伪造的皇冠水印纸。中国是开创邮驿最早的国家,距今有三千余年的历史;1878年发行了第一枚邮票,后来,中国人和外国人都称之为“大龙邮票”。中国清代邮票一出现就没有袭用外国主要用人头像作图样的习惯,而是采用了象征至高无上的“龙”为图案。1982年,中华全国集邮联合会成立以来,已逐步形成覆盖全国的集邮组织网络,如今会员已达421万人;1983年加入了国际集邮联合会和亚洲集邮联合会。我国群众性的集邮活动极为活跃:普及集邮知识,提高集邮水平,倡导高尚的集邮道德;组织集邮学术研究,宣传集邮文化内涵和社会作用;参加国际性集邮组织举办的会议,积极开展国际集邮文化交流活动,加强了与世界各国和地区邮友的往来。

幫幫忙基金會 急需倉儲空間, 另外, 計劃到中南美洲五個國家發放捐獻的物資, 歡迎有興趣人士參加‏

Dear All,
We have shipped eight containers to six countries so far this year. A big “thank you” to the all donors and volunteers who helped to make this possible! All the shipped containers have safely arrived in each country. We are planning to have a distribution trip to each those countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, which will start on April 19th. If any of you would like to join us, please email tinabow2003@yahoo.com.

Also, we are fortunate to have three more donors who are donating four containers of new clothes, new shoes and rice. Haiti needs food, so we will be sending the rice we have there. We still need storage space for the other three containers of donations. Each container of goods take up 320 sq. ft. of space (16 pallets), and will be stored until February of 2015. If you know anyone who would be willing to donate storage space to SimplyHelp, please contact Tina at 213-626-7676. The rent amount for the donated space is tax deductible. Also, all donations of merchandise are tax deductible. Thank you so much for your assistance in this matter!
