On 18th March 2017, United Nations, UNICEF and the cast from the “Smurfs: The Lost Village” teamed up to celebrate International Day of Happiness and also promote a new program “Small Smurfs Big Goals” campaign. Along with the event at the United Nations, other celebrations took place in 18 countries around the world including Australia, Belgium, Russia, Argentina and the UK, to name a few, to help raise awareness for the “Small Smurfs Big Goals” campaign and the Goals.
Part of the campaign also included the launch by the United Nations Postal Administration of a special edition of stamps featuring the Small Smurfs Big Goals campaign.
This is not the first time the Smurfs have appeared on postage stamps. In 1996 France released their Smurf Message Stamps with each stamp displaying a message and a Smurf.
In 2008 Belgium as part The Smurfs 50th Anniversary released 10 different postage stamps. Each stamp included a picture of a well known smurf and on one of the stamps it also included Gargamel.
So imagine my surprise this morning when I found out that Australia Post had produced a Smurfs stamp pack consisting of 10 postage stamps to coincide with the release of the Smurfs: Lost Village.
All of a sudden I had a brainwave, instead of buying family and friends Easter eggs this year I could send them a card instead telling them about the “Small Smurfs Big Goals” initiative. It’s a win, win for everyone and of course The Smurfs.
But then what happened about the idea of giving them Kinder Surprise Smurf Easter Eggs……….
Keep on Smurfin
