Blog > Earthquake relief fund update - Thank you!

As some of you might have noticed, Postcrossing closed the Paypal “donation box” for the Sichuan Earthquake relief fund a few days ago.
We took some time to mail all the postcard packs to the generous donors and today, exactly a month after the earthquake, we headed to the bank and made the deposit: 12289.2 RMB (or 1149.2 Euros or 1776.4 U.S. dollars) .

Thank you very much to everybody that contributed! Your kindness and generosity will surely have a meaningful impact on the lives of the millions of people affected by this disaster! envelopes
Like they say around here, 谢 谢 你!

PS – If you would still like to make a donation, please do so directly to the Red Cross, through the numbers on this page.
