News, updates, and all kinds of goodies and stories from the postal world!

Blog > 20! Million! Postcards! :D

… aaaaand it’s done!

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce that postcard number 20 million (US-2449004) was sent by yenting in the USA on October 7th and registered today at 05:49 (UTC) by funfunbot in Taiwan. Hurray! :D

Both the sender and the receiver will receive a surprise gift from MOO: a pack of 20 postcards for each of them!

Myrcella was the big winner of our guessing game contest, since she correctly guessed the correct minute in which that postcard was registered – bravo! You’ve won a pack of 40 postcards (20 classic, 20 luxe) from MOO + Keri Smith's new postcard book, Everything is connected.

The other four lucky postcrossers who came the closest to the right time were Alina92, Flusz, Eleleo and iphigenia – well done! You’ll all receive a pack of 20 postcards from MOO!

Once again, thank you for continuing to send lovely postcards to strangers across the globe, and for supporting Postcrossing throughout the years. A big thank you as well to our team of volunteers, who keep the project running everyday, and of course to MOO and Keri Smith, who kindly sponsored the contest!

And now… on with the postcard sending! There are plenty of mailboxes worldwide in need of happy days! :)
