The meaning of stamps

Stamps are far more than just a means of pay­ing for postage: They re­flect their times and rep­re­sent Ger­many abroad – they are al­so tiny works of art and can even be used to make a do­na­tion to char­i­ty.

Plus stamps

Ger­man stamps can be used to do a good deed since 1949. Ev­ery year, the Ger­man Fi­nance Min­istry is­sues spe­cial “plus stamps” which cost a lit­tle ex­tra in ad­di­tion to the postage fee. The ex­tra charge goes to char­i­ty. These “plus stamps” now gen­er­ate around €10 mil­lion for a good cause ev­ery year.
