StampSmarter Fantastic Website!

From landing page StampSmarter website, you can click on image to connect to site.

It is serendipitous discovering the fantastic StampSmarter Website, thanks to the email yesterday from the  Wilmington Philatelic Society. It was wonderful getting to connect with Don yesterday introducing myself.  What truly has me awestruck is the fantastic approach to life Don has taken.

 “In 2015 I was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer and kidney failure forcing me into semi-retirement at age 57. But I have been blessed with a great support system including my family, friends, and fellow hobbyists. This website is my way of ‘giving back’ to our hobby.      We have received a great amount of support and assistance from the American Kidney Foundation. In an effort to give back, I am raising money for them. If you would like to learn more or help please visit my kidney page.”

There are two articles in Linn’s Stamp News to mention. Earlier in April StampSmarter website offers a multitude of tools for collectors about the site.  “You can learn a lot from Don Denman’s StampSmarter website. … The site is free of advertisements. You can join the group at no charge if you wish to participate in the monthly stamp contest or contribute to online projects.” … 

Also, from January 2015, Bill Weiss shares “… It is this same sense of advocacy that inspires me to give back to this hobby in helpful ways: … which I then report to Stamp Smarter, a website designed to help both buyers and sellers through education.   I cofounded this website along with Don Denman, a dedicated advocate with the same goals as me.” …

Thank you again, Don, for your creating such a wonderful site with so many tools to help with stamp collecting!
