Postcrossing blog

News, updates and all kind of goodies

A special call for postcards

Thank you!

After only a week, we've already received an overwhelming amount of postcards, so we've decided to take down the address. We're preparing an update for later this week, so keep an eye on the blog! Seriously, you guys are THE best! :)

...pretty please?

Dear postcrossers,

This is Ana, your community manager speaking. I'm usually the writer behind the posts that you read on this blog... but today I'm writing this one as myself, to personally ask for your assistance.

You see, in about a month, I will be in Portugal, standing in front of an audience of several hundred people from various backgrounds, to tell them about Postcrossing and the simple pleasures of receiving mail. The problem is... I'm willing to bet that 99% of them have probably never received a postcard, or don't remember the last time that they did. How can you empathize with something you've never experienced? While brainstorming a plan for making this work, I reached the inevitable conclusion: I have to show them!

So, inspired by Oprah, my idea is to surprise many of the conference attendees with an unexpected postcard written just for them, which they would receive during the talk!

I could write all the postcards myself... but I think it would be much more interesting if the postcards came from different people all around the world, with their own stories and details.
So I wanted to ask... would you mind writing a postcard, and giving me a hand? I would be really grateful, and you'd be helping all these people re-discover the magic of postcards! :)

Interested? Got a neat card that you don't mind sharing? Then mail it to:

We've received sooooo many cards in just a week, that I've decided to remove the address, as I think they'll be more than enough. Thank you so much! :)

What should you write on it? Whatever you like, really, but here are some ideas to get you started:

  • How do you feel when you find a postcard on your mailbox at the end of the day?
  • What does Postcrossing mean to you?
  • What have you learnt or discovered through postcards? What would you teach this person?
  • What was the most inspirational talk you've ever attended or listened to?
  • What is special about your city or country?
Thank you!

Or you could just describe what you did today and what the weather is like where you are... anything goes, really! :)

That's it! Those who know me, know that I'm a bit shy and not particularly comfortable with the spotlight... I'd like to think that, by carrying your postcards with me, I'll have a little bit of your support on that stage.

Thank you so much in advance! :)

PS:

I thought I'd add a couple notes to clear up some of the questions that have come up in the comments:
- Please don't put my name on the postcard - the cards are not for me, they'll all be delivered to the attendees. The address is a PO box, it works fine without a name.
- If you want to write a salutation on the message, keep it simple and flexible with an "Hello" or "Dear attendee"
- The event takes place on March 8th... so please send your cards soon! :)

Just a little side remark:
Postcrossing is one of the reasons I just started learning Portuguese. Also to read some literatur in the original. Hope I'll succeed. Love the language.

I'll get some postcards on their way to you! Promised!

meiadeleite, Germany
YAY! You guys are brilliant! I wish I could high-five each one of you :)

So, a few notes to clear things up:

- No need for envelopes!
- The theme of the conference is "emotions". The attendees are really from all sorts of backgrounds, but definitely not children - more like university students, professionals, experts in different fields and people who are curious and open to new ideas.
- You should write the address as it is without a name (it's a PO box).
- I plan to deliver the cards during the conference, so they're not for me - they're for the attendees. If you'd like to write a greeting, just write "Hello!" or "Dear attendee", to keep it flexible, and write the card as you would to any other Postcrossing member :)

Hope that helps!

Thank you everyone! Your outpour of support is really overwhelming and incredibly nice. Postcrossers sure are the best! :)

I will definitely be updating you with photos of the postcards (provided by my brother, who I'm bribing with chocolate in order for him to empty his PO box regularly), and I'm quite certain there will be video evidence of the talk to share later... I'll keep you posted! :D

paradonym, Germany
OMG I received a postcard from Ana month ago ;D Crazy that I don't remember which card on my room-wall, but the user behind that cards.
Just printed an own photo as a big card (maximum postcard sizes from our post office) to send it, and I don't know whether it'll stay only that card. Probably I'll send much more cards. Expect more than one. Normally if I'm writing postcards I can't stop it.

IDonCarlos, United States of America
I really enjoy your blogs, Ana. I was amused that you thought of writing the postcards yourself - allowing us to join in is the whole purpose of Postcrossing. You can be sure I will be writing at least one card. Or maybe a half dozen!

Friz, Italy
tomorrow I'll send a card from Italy. The main reason why guys must know postcrossing is about geography. I have 3 kids...they don't know where the countries are in this world, they don't study the capitals of the countries at school. East, West, North, South....is all identical. The beauty of getting a card from a far country is to understand where it comes from and to check on the world map where that city is situated...Great occasion really. ciao from Italy. Alfredo.

Done. Sent. Postcard from Chicago headed your way. I addressed it to "Ana" but I hope that whoever reads it knows that it was written for them. I just wanted to make sure that it reached your mailbox alright.
Good luck at the conference/seminar/speaking engagement! There need to be more proselytizers for real mail in this world :)
Posted by friedsparrow on 4 Feb, 2014


meiadeleite, Germany
@GnuD I don't want to say the name of the event for fear it will spoil the surprise when the attendee's google it... but I can say it's a regional version of a big worldwide conference.

The theme of this year's conference is "emotions" and the things that move us. I'll be focusing on the small pleasures of receiving mail, and the difference that small moment can make. I'm hoping many people will realize the power of postcards, and who knows... perhaps join Postcrossing too (and make the world a better place!) :D

Consider it done. In this world of intangible communication it is so nice to be able to feel the words on the postcard. The indentations made by the words as they are written. The thrill of making contact with someone far away. It's a small adventure every time I receive a postcard. Thanks for making our worlds collide in such a beautiful way.

@hevans: address sent!

@cleopatra-matta: that's a really nice idea for the extra cards! I would love to do it, but I think most of the cards' messages might be focused on the themes I hinted to above, which would make them a bit strange for those institutions...

With a bit of planning though, I recon we could do a postcard drive in the near future for a few of those! :D

Olá Ana,
Gostava de saber onde vai ser a tua apresentação.
Obrigada.

Good news, everyone... WE DID IT! :D

In the end there were over 1400 cards... which means most attendants got 2 postcards instead of just one! I'll write a proper post about it when the organization publishes the video of the talk, but I just wanted to let you know that I think it went well, and the people loved the surprise of discovering your postcards! :)

I was quite nervous, but Paulo tells me I didn't mess up the whole thing, so YAY for that! Thank you so, so much for making all of this possible. I wish I could hug ALL of you really tight!
