The Benevolent Postcard Society
My friends who know me a little long already know it and today I would like to share this secret with you. I just looooooooooooooove to receive traditional postcards at home. i rarely get ‘real mail’ these days, unless of course it’s the monthly bills, or of 3 of 4 postcards with my birthday. But now there is the benevolent postcard society. This is a fantastic idea created by illustrator and blogger lori langille of the blog automatism. How does this work? The idea is simple: Send a happy postcard. Get a happy postcard. That's pretty much it. Each month you'll send a postcard to a different person — and each month a different person will send a postcard to you. At the end of the year, you'll have 12 postcards from 12 different people.
Please note that the BPS unfortunately cannot accept any new members since August 2009. But it’s fun to check them out online anyway. And maybe this will inspire you to send your own postcards to your loved ones
