At the beginning of November 2015, I posted a message on my Facebook page asking friends and family if they were able to send me a postcard instead of a Christmas card so that I could then use it for my Inspiredtravels71 project. My Facebook plea for help.
I didn’t know what sort of response I’d get really, nor did I mind as I love getting Christmas cards and display them as part of my decorations. Donated postcards displayed as part of my Christmas decorations.
I know a few people read about my project as we’ve discussed it, but didn’t know how many people had clicked on my blog post links to read more about the project. It seems more people do than I thought!
I’ve received 150+ postcards as a result of my plea for help. Wow, thank you all so much to those that helped me. A result way beyond my wildest dreams! I received postcards from friends and family both here in the uk & from all around the world (Canada, Australia, Iceland, Poland, India & Mexico to name a few). Such a wide range of pictures & slogans which make it all the more interesting when I’m writing the cards out. Friends from work traveling home for the holidays took cards to hide & collected cards for me in New York, Kenya, Tokyo, Russia, Budapest & Madagascar.
What a lucky girl I am to have got all this help from one plea for help.
Thank you all so much, I truly do appreciate everything that you’re all doing to support my project, Mum does too. She’s loving all the stories I have to tell her about the wonderful things happening.
I’m looking forward to seeing how the project grows in 2016 & if I get more finders. Here are a few pictures of the donated postcards I’ve received…
