And so, the 10th edition of our Cards for Literacy campaign with Deutsche Post comes to an end, and here we are to let you know how many postcards were sent for this good cause in 2022. Without further ado…
Hurray! A brilliant result, which will help many people improve their reading skills in Germany, and thus improve their outcomes in areas like education, professional success, and integration. Well done to all our enthusiastic German members, and also to all the recipients of these postcards, who welcome them with open
Our heartfelt thank you to Deutsche Post, for partnering with the Postcrossing community and making this possible. Being a non-profit organization, funding is super important for Stiftung Lesen to run their various programs, but also to do research into different aspects of literacy! For instance, they’re trying to answer big questions like, how are reading behaviors affected by different media, and whether teenagers read differently than adults. It’s by studying these issues that they’re able to make policy recommendations, that in turn contribute to sustainable social development.
And as always at the end of the campaign, Paulo runs his magical script to randomly choose the recipients of vouchers for the Deutsche Post shop. If you’re in Germany and sent at least one postcard last December, keep an eye on your inbox for a message from Postcrossing soon. You might be one of our winners!

7 of my cards aren´t arrived in the regular time...
That´s everytime so, 5-6 % get lost... :-(
Anyway, thanks for registration !
They should do something like that in the Netherlands, it already costs so much here...
Special Thanks to German Postcrossers!
Sad that ONLY Deutsche Post supports the social project...
To Postcrossing : I wish you could develop this in other countries, France for example, but also others willing too ! It's a fantastic idea !
Thanks to Postcrossing who was always working on it, Deutsche Post who was supportive, and every German Postcrossers who made this come true.
But for this action Deutsche Post get my douze points / 12 points.
But when I last checked at the end of February all in all there were several thousands of German postcards that had not been registered and that is really a pity.
