"The Midnight Soaker's" FREE UNITED STATES STAMPS Project" filled its 28,404th request for free stamps on
April 25, 2008.
The site was started in May of 2001 and had over 184,500 visitors. We stopped keeping a website statistics, when our
second hit counter, became a red box with an x inside, in late June of 2006.
A new counter will be added later this year.

There were 5,130 duplicate and triplicate requests not counted above that were filled. However, I can not promise
that these requests will always be granted.
Please understand that there are currently approximately 4,250 requests that are unfilled. So there is currently a
delay of 10 to 18 weeks until your free stamps will arrive. I am a one man operation and try to fill 30 to 50
requests per night.
Occasionally, I have friends and associates help me get caught up with this project. Sometimes friends will take home 25
or 50 envelopes to help me get caught up.
Originally, the packets were 150 to 300 stamps each. Currently each packet has about 80 to 100 stamps each. I include basic
stamp collecting information in each envelope. This way new collectors can learn about how to soak stamps off of envelope
Paper, as well as, other stamp collecting tips such as where to find stamps for your new collection.
I have made some wonderful stamp collecting friends over the past 7 years. Many collectors have sent pictures
(some very wild), letters, artwork, post cards, maps, coins, etc. that I will be making a scrap book soon.
Thank you for all of the pleasure that you have brought me.
