2 million received postcards! YAY! Can you believe it?

Postcrossing headquarters is cheerfully celebrating this incredible milestone of 2 million received postcards! :) Thank you so much for making this possible through your lovely postcards!

Of course you're all itching to know who were the lucky members that exchanged this special postcard, so here's the screenshot of the action:

Postcard 2 million travelled from Muffins in Germany, to coveralls1 in Norway!

Congratulations to these 2 members! And despite the many tries nobody guessed the countries. We'll be organizing another contest soon to give that prize away.

MrsTaavi, Germany
Congratulations! Unbelievable! I think two weeks ago there were still 82,000 left.... time and the postcards are running :-)

My suggestion: Why don't you give the price two both of them who were "involved" in postcard # 2,000,000 - to coveralls1 and muffin?

Dear Creators of Postcrossing & Postcrossing Friends around the World!
WOW - I am all over the place - I'm so happy!! I'll never forget this day! I'm down with the flu this week, but this calls for a celebration - so I have opened a bottle of the kind of stuff Vikings like to drink :-) I have been sending and receiving postcards for almost 40 years - so I'm going down memory lane, saluting the little girl in Northern Ireland who sent me the first cards I ever received from abroad and got me hooked on this hobby way back in time and space. Congrats to Muffins who I have known via postcrossing for years already - this is a day you'll never forget :-) I don't have a scanner, but I would like to tell all of you that Muffins sent me 4 BEAUTIFUL cards and a special stamp. Last but not least for today: Congrats to all Postcrossers for making this world a better place with your wonderful cards and words!
Big hugs from Joey in Stavanger, Norway.

dythefly, Canada
That was so great! Congratulations! Even though postcrossing is my hobby, my multi-generational household gets involved everytime something comes in and something goes out. I think my mail lady even is excited to deliver postcards to me! I knew I was out of the run because the mail came yesterday before we were even at about 2000. I gave everyone exciting updates on how close we were, even on Facebook too because most of my friends know about my great hobby! Sadly, it was getting late and the cards weren't ticking away fast enough. I went to bed at 175, knowing it would happen before long. How exciting!!!!!
Happy postcrossing guys!

Joey realy deserves it! He once registered my postcard that had actually got lost, which was really nice of him. And come to think of it, if he hadn't, he wouldn't have got the lucky 2 million card. So here's one example how little acts of random kindness pay off!

Congratulations to everyone! It's time to celebrate!!!
And BIIIG thanks to Paulo!

Oh man! This is exciting! I couldn't get enough sleep, i wanted to see it but I fell asleep but I am very very happy that two of my well known fellow postcrossers were the special sender and receiver! I can't wait for 3 million now!

My friends, let's work even harder to make it to 3 million! We didn't take much time to reach 2 million from 1 million!

Congrats!! Three things that helps us with postcards
1. Generates revenue to Government by stamp purchase
2. Gives us knowledge about people and places
3. Its a written proof or document which can stay with us
for decades unlike Emedia.
congrats all the members for making it possible
