Centenary Commemorative items – Envelopes & Stamps

Commemorative Envelopes with our own Soroptimist Stamps

Celebrating Our Centenary – Own a Little Piece of Soroptimist History

The Commemorative envelope is a unique piece of history. Captured by a specially designed stamp and cancellation, it celebrates a moment in time. These envelopes and stamps are a perfect way to mark the centenary of our Soroptimist Organisation, at a price affordable for everyone. Keep as a momento or give as a present to promote our worldwide project work for women and girls. The envelopes and stamps have been developed with our images and logos and celebrate 100 years since the founding of the very first Soroptimist club in Oakland, California in 1921. These are limited editions of 500 per design, which will become collector’s items. Similar Commemorative envelopes have increased considerably in value over time.

Envelope 1 – ‘The World’

This confirms the presence of Soroptimists worldwide now and depicts ‘The Road to Equality’ campaign for gender equality. The reverse details a historical timeline of the continuing development of the organisation.

This commemorates the first Soroptimist members and their meeting place in California. The reverse records some of the worldwide projects completed in recent years.

There are inserts in both envelopes explaining the history of the Soroptimists and their involvement in worldwide events such as World War II and alliances with the United Nations and UNICEF.
