#CarryUsThrough

Collection Issue Date: 4th May 2020

An eight stamp collection celebrating our front line workers

Isle of Man Post Office is proud to issue this eight stamp collection in response to the global pandemic health crisis brought about by Covid -19, Coronavirus.

The stamps reflect the unique response of an Island population to the challenges brought by coronavirus; highlighting the message that Love, Faith, Care, Compassion, Work, Community, Words and Science will #CarryUsThrough these unprecedented times.

The issue is presented on the underlying themes of strength, fortitude and love during a global crisis, celebrating the people making such a contribution to our lives; NHS workers, key staff including postal workers, carers, volunteers, our community and the scientists and educators who will develop vaccines and educate our children.

The stamps proudly display the three legs of Man, its meaning: “Whithersoever way you throw us, we will stand”. This motto summarises the Manx spirit and the determination of our people to fight on through this crisis.

A donation from the sale of the stamps will be made to the Manx Solidarity Fund. If you would like to make a donation to the Fund you can do so via their website.

Issue Information

Worldwide we are seeing countless acts of kindness and the coming together of communities in a bid to spread unity, care and positivity.

The issue is presented on the underlying themes of strength, fortitude and love during a global crisis, celebrating the people making such a contribution to our lives; NHS workers, key staff, carers, volunteers, our community and the scientists and educators who will develop vaccines and educate our children.

Similarly we wish to celebrate the kind-heartedness and compassion found within our Island, as during these difficult times it is important to acknowledge these acts of kindness and care. This issue is very much community based and driven; however these morals can be applied to all nations across the world and our close neighbours within the UK, all of whom are also suffering during the ongoing crisis.

The stamps proudly display the three legs of Man, its meaning: “Whithersoever way you throw us, we will stand”.  This motto summarises the Manx spirit and the determination of our people to fight on through this crisis.

Stamp 1 - Love Will #CarryUsThrough

Love for our fellow beings is what will help us conquer fear, grief and help us rebuild our lives.

Stamp 2 - Faith Will #CarryUsThrough

Faith is what keeps us all strong in a crisis and at this special time we are seeing a new level of tolerance.

Stamp 3 - Care Will #CarryUsThrough

Our carers, nurses, doctors, health workersand the entire NHS and all its supporting bodies are the champions of our time. We celebrate every one of them. Some, too many, will have given their lives by the time these stamps are seen.

 Stamp 4 - Compassion Will #CarryUsThrough

Compassion for those who have lost people, compassion for those suffering and those who are afraid. Compassion is what distinguishes human

Stamp 5 - Work Will #CarryUsThrough

The Government has asked us to work to save our country. Workers from a great variety of expertise have joined in the effort to make healthcare equipment. Without their efforts we would be lost.

Stamp 6 - Community Will #CarryUsThrough

Communities are coming together like never before. Many are delivering food to the frail supported by networks of volunteers. Communities have become local again.

Stamp 7 - Words Will #CarryUsThrough

We are writing to each other again. For those in isolation, words raise the spirits, bring back memories and stir emotions. A letter to an elderly relative means more than a quick call or a text; it is tangible, real and treasured.

Stamp 8 - Science Will #CarryUsThrough

Scientists are working 24/7 to find a vaccine. Never have our Government advisers in science had more visibility. We have represented all the main fields of science (biology, chemistry, physics and maths) and by kind permission of Dr Lucy Hawking, included two of Professor Hawking’s equations.
