What is Postcrossing?
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?
- Request an address and a Postcard ID
- Mail the postcard to that address
- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“It's not about receiving and collecting cards-It's about sharing a part of yourself with the world. Influencing people and leaving your mark in a place you may not ever get to visit. It's about connecting. It's putting a smile on someone face you may never get to meet. It makes my day better.”
