This is a blog of my personal stamps and covers collection. I am an avid collector of postage stamps, miniature sheets, FDCs and covers addressed to me from across the world, an accumulator and hoarder of stamps. It is my attempt here to show you all of my collection in the posts that I'll add and update regularly. I hope to add more to the collection in the process, interact with you other collectors out there and share thoughts and information about anything and everything related.

2010 Children's Health: New Zealand Butterfly shaped Miniature Sheet
NZ post issues stamps every year to support Te Puna Whaiora - the New Zealand Foundation for Child and Family Health and Development which specialises in helping at-risk children aged five to 12 to overcome barriers to healthy lifestyles.
In 2010, New Zealand Post issued three beautifully illustrated 'butterfly' stamps - each with a 10-cent surcharge that goes to support Te Puna Whaiora's seven Children's Health Camps. The collection also included a butterfly shaped miniature sheet that truly brings the butterfly theme to life.
