It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. Learn more.

How does it work?

  2. Mail the postcard to that address
  3. Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
  4. Register the Postcard ID you have received
  5. Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

User testimonials

“It gives me an opportunity to 'see' places where I may never be in my life. Every time I receive a card, I'm reminded of how vast this world is, how many different people there are, and how many things I can do as an individual to give a smile to someone else in this world.”
