The Christmas Stamp
The Child-Rearing Fund is the oldest and derives its income from the production and sale of the decorative Christmas Stamp, which was first issued by the society in 1913. It has been sold in benefit of the fund every year since then, with the exception of 1917 when the ship bringing the stamps from Denmark, where they were printed, was sunk. These stamps, many of them designed by well-known artists, are now prized collectors' items and have been widely exhibited. The Christmas Stamps are for sale all year round in the Bazaar.
The Cristmas Card Fund
is more recent and derives its income from the production and sale of Christmas and greeting cards. As well as being sold once a year by each member in her individual circle of friends and colleagues, the cards are for sale all year round in the Bazaar.
