This is a UK based (but open to adding a foreign page if she gets interest) FREE directory run by a friend. A lot of UK charities collect used postage stamps to sell onto collectors to fundraise. These are charities which collect used stamps - if you represent a charity or non-profit organisation, contact my friend to be added. If you have stamps to donate, find a cause to your liking from the directory, and if you are a collector, why not contact the charities to see if they have stamps they could sell you?
I hope it is OK to post here. It is a free site, no profit or money is made by my friend for running it. I am just helping her spread the word.

What do you, personally consider honourable behaviour?

Honour or Honor (see spelling differences), (from the Latin word honos, honoris) is the evaluation of a person's trustworthiness and social status based on that individual's espousals and actions. Honour is deemed exactly what determines a person's character: whether or not the person reflects honesty, respect, integrity, or fairness. Accordingly, individuals are assigned worth and stature based on the harmony of their actions, code of honour, and that of the society at large. Honour can be analysed as a relativistic concept, i.e., conflicts between individuals and even cultures arising as a consequence of material circumstance and ambition, rather than fundamental differences in principle. Alternatively, it can be viewed as nativist — that honour is as real to the human condition as love, and likewise derives from the formative personal bonds that establish one's personal dignity and character.

Tiberias- What did your father tell you of your obligations?
Balian - That I was to be a good knight.
Tiberias- I pray the world and Jerusalem can accommodate such rarity as a perfect knight.

As I have observed  if you mention honour in a conversation, people will usually do one of two things these days.
* change the subject as fast as possible
* walk away really fast 

What does honour mean in my books? 
Well its a code of living. Its not about looking pretty to the outside world, it means a lot more than that. I think in this superficial society, thats why the idea makes people scurry off. 

Honour is, among other things,
* telling the truth
* being trustworthy
* being true to yourself
* keeping your word - if you find something is impossible for you to do as agreed, then you make it clear, up-front. 
* trying to do things that are helpful and useful to your community
* respecting, and in turn expecting respect. 
* having an open mind

And sticking by those principles come what may.
