Blog > Postcrossing & Deutsche Post: Postcards for a good cause!
Once again, Postcrossing is dressing up for the holidays, and in the spirit of the season, we're partnering up once more with Deutsche Post to make your postcards work for a good cause! Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, we're proud to announce that...
Doesn't that sound nice? If you're in Germany, all you have to do is keep sending postcards! If your December postcards are registered before the end of February 2015, you'll be contributing to this cause.
And though only postcards sent from Germany count, there's always a receiver in every postcard exchange - so each time a card from Germany is registered, the recipient will be indirectly contributing to this donation as well!
To make things even more interesting, there will also be some nice prizes for the participants:
- One lovely postcard-storage box.
- 3 messenger bags with Deutsche Post's logo.
- 20 custom-designed stamp sheets, each including 15 international postage stamps with Postcrossing's logo.
- 20 bus vouchers for the Postbus service, valid on any trip on their network.
Stiftung Lesen is a German non-profit organization, working to increase literacy - especially among children and adolescents. They promote reading through several different activities, such as the "My first letter" contest.
So... what are you waiting for? If you're in Germany, grab a pen and your stack of postcards and stamps, and start writing! The more cards you send, the more you'll contribute to this cause - and the more chances you'll have of winning a nice prize! :)
PS - As always, we respect your private information and will not share it with any company without your express permission. The full details of this campaign can be read here (German only).
