Your news letter and your coverage of Olympic Festival 2008 in India by Mr. Vijay Seth, is very fine as I am an Olympic philatelist I too want to be part of your club,The Olymphilex is a "world-class Olympic and sports exhibition" organized by the IOC and the Federation of International Olympic Philatelists (FIPO). The first such exhibition was held in 1985 at Lausanne (Switzerland), the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). "The first Olymphilex to be held during the Olympic Games was in Seoul in 1988. Since then it has been an integral part of the Games." This time in Olympic we started with gold in shooting and bronze medal won by Indian wrestler Sushil Kumar and bronze medal won by Indian Boxer Vijender Kumar and end with Three Medals to the total at Beijing. Congratulations! Abhinav Bindra, Sushil Kumar & Vijender Kumar made every Indian proud.In philately we achieved 100% result, This year's the eighth edition of such exhibition was held in Beijing China from August 8 to 18 during the Games 23 countries had taken part in the exhibition and 10 exhibits from India were sent for particpation in Olympex 2008 and all the ten won the awards and made sports fans/philatelist to be proud.

Club Offers Free Starter-Kits to Help Parents and Kids With Stamp Collecting
SOUTHEAST, US. – Aug 7, 2008 --- Recently the Rossi Family noticed there weren’t many resources out there to help parents introduce stamp collecting to their children. Academic studies have shown stamp collecting is very effective in communicating important historical, topical, cultural and geographical information to school-age children whom as a result receive higher test scores. Armed with these statistics and a passion for stamps, the Rossi Family created a club, “Kids Need Stamps” and formed starter-kits of 20 US and International stamps to assist parents with first steps into the fascinating worldwide hobby. The Guiness Book of World Records lists Stamp Collecting as the World’s Largest Hobby with over 20 million devotees consistently collecting for more than 120 years.
Their blogsite “Kids Need Stamps” http://kidsneedstamps.blogspot.com/ informs parents step by step on collecting, supplies, topics and the closer relationships forged between parents and children learning together. It also donates and encourages parents to donate used stamps from envelopes to the “Stamps For the Wounded” program set up through the Lion’s Club to help wounded military veterans through tough times of physical and psychological recovery at VA hospitals around the country. Kids Need Stamps encourages parents to visit the site and request a free starter-kit to begin the journey of stamp collecting. It’s a grand hobby that brings education and parenting into one blessed quality time session. Parenting is never more fun!
