Blog > Postcards for a good cause: the 2017 results are here!
March is fiiiiiinally here, and we can reveal at last how many postcards were sent for a good cause last December! Ready to find out? Here it goes…
Postcrossers in Germany sent a total of 86,858 postcards during December, raising €8,685.80 for Stiftung Lesen! YAY!
Congratulations to all postcrossers for making this happen! We’re forever in awe of the thousands of dedicated German senders, who save their postcard slots throughout November just to be able to send more postcards are soon as the clock strikes 12 on December 1st — and they keep at it the whole month!
And of course, all the prompt recipients are important too! Every postcard has a sender and a receiver, and they’re both part of each exchange — so congratulations to all the recipients as well.
And last but not least, a big thank you to Deutsche Post for always standing by their commitment to improving literacy in Germany, year after year. Hurray!
Paulo is going to run his magic script to choose the prize winners, and if you’re one of them, we’ll get in touch in the next few days. Keep an eye on your email to find out if you were one of them! 😊
