The Order of the Easter Star in B.C. and Yukon provides funding to the B.C. Cancer Agency for the purchase of all types of equipment, scholarships for oncology personnel and free cancer dressings for cancer patients.

One of the Order’s special fundraisers is the cancelled stamp project where they collect cancelled stamps throughout B.C., trim, sort and sell the stamps to dealers.

They also collect new and used postcards. In 2015 – 2016, $6,277.65 was raised by this project and these funds are used to provide the material used in making free cancer dressings.

Since the inception of the project in 1954, $457,025.21 has been raised by the Order of the Eastern Star.
