User testimonials

“It is a wonderful surprise to find 5 or 6 postcards from all over the world in your mailbox. It never fails to make me smile and make my day a little better. I think that it's a fun way to get a snapshot of how different people live and what's important to them. It's also a wonderful reminder that there is a lot of beauty in the world :-)”
