Blog > (Almost) 2 million postcards!
When Postcrossing started, there was only a wish that a few users would join to try it. A few weeks after launch, that goal got overwhelmingly reached and hundreds of postcards started to be exchanged across different countries. It was a great success, but still, reaching millions was only a dream back then.
Now, over 3 years later, we are almost reaching 2 million exchanged postcards. What an amazing milestone! So many smiles have been created, several friendships have been seeded, more understanding and cultural awareness has been generated. Postcrossing is making the world a smaller placer, and we couldn’t be prouder. :)
Therefore, we want to tell the whole world about Postcrossing and this achievement. We want to reach even more people and make them smile too. And here’s where you can help!
It’s simple: we have created a press release about Postcrossing and the 2 million postcards mark to send to the media. All you need to do is download it and send it to your local newspapers, radio, TV, favourite news website, all counts! Help spread the word about Postcrossing and making this community larger.
With the help of many of you, we already translated the press release into several languages (thank you!), but feel free to translate to your own (or just use the English one) if you don’t find it here.

We thank you in advance for all the help on spreading the word about this milestone!
And while we are at it, we have a small prize to give away! All you need to do is to leave a comment to this post with your prediction of which country will receive the postcard 2 million and where it came from (example: “From Portugal to Australia”). Only one guess is allowed per person and the first person to answer correctly will receive a little something from us. We’ll reveal the right answer on the day we reach 2 million.
Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets!
