25 million postcards!

One postcard... two postcards... 25 million postcards! Boy, that escalated quickly*!

We did a little math - did you know that if we lined 25 million postcards side by side, they would be enough to cover the distance between Lisbon and St. Petersburg, or between Los Angeles and Washington DC? That's how many postcards we've all sent these past 9 years!


I know you're all dying to know who did it, and here it is: postcard number 25 million (NL-2612179) was sent by LianneK in the Netherlands on August 5th and registered today at 11:02 (UTC) by linsi in Germany. Hurray!

Lepan was the big winner of our guessing game contest, since she guessed the correct date and time at which that postcard was registered - brilliant! You've won a pack of 40 postcards (20 classic, 20 luxe) from MOO and a surprise set of 100 lovely postcards!

The other four lucky postcrossers who came the closest to the right time were skliu, sunzhuxian, AnnLee and Olga86 - well done! You'll all receive a pack of 20 postcards from MOO!

Both the sender and the receiver will also receive a surprise pack of Where's Waldo? postcards!

A huge thank you to our team of volunteers, to MOO for sponsoring this giveaway, and most of all to you - all of you who send postcards and take part on this global postcard revolution!

Come on - let's go fill some mailboxes with smiles, one postcard at a time! :)
