About Maria...

Hello!

I'm Maria, I like a lot of things... But at the moment I like peace and freedom most of all.
I'm from Minsk, but recently I had to move to Vilnius.

In Belarus there are more than 1400 political prisoners, who are imprisoned for having their opinion. Please support them by sending a postcard with any warm words or good news. You can find the names and addresses here: https://prisoners.spring96.org/en (see the map with all prisons listing people detained there, or you can find an address on each person's page)
By the way, founder of "Spring96" organisation, Ales Bialiatski, recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize 2022. He is also in the list of prisoners, so you can write to him.

Here is one more link if you can read russian: https://airtable.com/shrqmYo8MpIsPILwP/tblGLLb2GWfVFZOxp

Also if you like stitching, you may join https://framedinbelarus.net project.

If you picked my address via postcrossing, you can send the card to any of the prisoners above and just let me know - I'll register your card as if you sent it to me.

Thank you very much in advance!

====================

In case you're choosing the card for me, here are some hints (but it's not a demand, you know):

Happy Postcrossing! :)

PS: I always write my address on a card, that's just for my Post office - to be sure that card won't be lost

PPS: Шаноўныя сябры з Беларусi, ведаю, як складана выбраць паштоўку для iншага беларуса :) Каб было крыху лягчэй, выявы маiх любiмых гарадоў more than welcome:) Львiв, Барселона, Прага, Стакгольм, Кракаў, Мельбурн, Тракай, Амстэрдам, Будапешт, Эдзінбург... to be continued:)
Дзякуй!

PPPS: Dear friends from Ukraine and Poland, feel free to write in your native language. It's a pleasure for me to read it (though my "thank you" will be rather in English or Belarusian :)

PPPPS: It would be nice if you put a "thanks mr postman" sticker or smth like that on the card :)
