Stamp help for my first event
Board: Letterbox Chatter

Hi everyone! I am planning my very first event for the summer of 2021. The name of the event is: Letterboxing Goes To The Dogs (and cats). It will be an animal-centered event, with collections (cash and/or physical donations such as cat food, dog food, toys, blankets, etc) to benefit the local animal orphanage. It will be my first event, and I'm beginning work on it now so that when it arrives, it will be great! At the rate things are going right now, 2021 could BE the arrival of the next event (seriously though, I sure hope not!)

All the stamps for the event are animal-centered, with the exception of a series I am planting based on the local commerce of the event town.

Since many people are stuck at home right now and may have the time to carve, I'm going to put this out there all kinds of early, in case y'all would like to help me out! I gave first dibs to those signed up, and lemme tell ya, they came through gangbusters! (Thank you, Thank you)

These are some of the stamps I am still looking for. If you feel inclined to donate, I thank you wholeheartedly. Also, if you want the stamp back after, let me know.

whose first finds in 2000 were Trish’s boxes

first time through I read this incorrectly

I read it as " whose first 2000 finds were Trish's boxes."

Ha! I could never achieve 2000 finds in my lifetime! It has taken me 20+ years to reach 1500 and a goodly chunk of finds in the last years were all from the LL Bean Final Flight event.

Girl Scout Bronze Award Project

Hi everyone,

Please forgive me if I'm overstepping. I'm a troop leader of a Girl Scout troop here in FL. My girls are beginning to work on their Bronze Award, one of the three highest awards a Girl Scout can earn.

For their Bronze project, they have decided to promote the outdoor experience, troop camping, and letterboxing within our local council by making and planting a series of letterboxes at each Girl Scout camp in our council. (If you didn't know already, there's a letterboxing badge that Brownie Girl Scouts can earn, and our girls want to facilitate other troops earning that badge.)

To that end, I'm writing in the hopes that the letterboxing community here on AQ would be willing to help support our Bronze Award project by donating materials and supplies. We are in need of SpeedyCarve and lino cutters. Specifically, we are looking for 8 sets of lino cutters and 16 sheets of 4"x6" speedycarve.

If you are willing to donate to our project, our address is:
Girl Scout Troop 40038
1225 SW Malaga Ave
Port St Lucie, FL. 34953

Thank you all for your time and consideration, and we'll post updates as our project progresses!

It's not in quantity, but quality, and the journey with friends. At least for me, others mileage may vary.

Thank You so much for all the Cake Day wishes today. I am so thankful for all of my friends in this wonderful “community”.

I was able to find a new series of boxes planted today, and not that far from my home.

Letterboxing buddies are the best—always looking forward to seeing you or boxing with you all again.

Just within the last 1-2 days our neighboring Riverside County stated that all residents are to wear face coverings when outside - it’s not an option and I think also anyplace that is not your own residence, and they’ve added more restrictions on top of that.

Stay safe,
