Is this year going by especially fast? I feel like I blinked and next thing I know it's already April... whoa! The worst of winter is (hopefully) behind us in the Northern hemisphere and days keep stretching ahead, promising and enticing.
It's a good thing we shook off our winter slumber now, because April is Write_On month! If you've never heard about it, here's a little video to bring you up to speed:
Doesn't that sound nice? The Indiegogo campaign they put together earlier this year went really well, and they used the funds to make and send thousands of writing kits (with stationery, pens and a zine) to everyone who signed up for them. Slowly, Write_On has shifted from a personal challenge to a cultural movement that is picking momentum, challenging people to develop better letter-writing habits. We're all for more reasons to send mail and make people happy, so naturally, this sounds like a wonderful idea!
And because the people behind Write_On want everyone to write more, they offering to equip one lucky postcrosser with a mighty impressive set of stationery supplies, sure to delight the recipients of your correspondence! Have a look at the swag:
There's postcards from Egg Press, pens from Sakura of America, boxed card sets from Chronicle Books, an assortment of cards from the Write_On sponsors, and a pin as well! 😀
To participate, leave a comment below sharing a reason for writing someone a postcard or letter. It could be something like "Thanking someone for being a great role model" or "Sending someone a list of places you'd like to go with them someday"... anything goes, as long as it's a good excuse to write!
Good luck everyone, and remember to check back on this post around this time next week, to know whether your name was picked by Paulo's random number generator. Thank you to the Write_On organisers, for putting together such a neat spread for this giveaway!
And the winner of this bounty, as chosen by Paulo's random number generator is... paleon! Congratulations, and thanks everyone for your enthusiastic participation! :)
