PostCrossingPostCrossing  is an online project that allows you to send and receive postcards from all over the world! Addresses are assigned randomly, so you never know where you will be sending to or receiving one from!

So far, this loonie has sent postcards to Russia, Germany, New York State, The Republic of China, Belarus, Washington State, & the Netherlands.

Founded in November 2008 out of an unfortunate but hopeful diagnosis, awesome friendships and brainstorming with big hearted family members, SendKidsTheWorld.com features kids with life-threatening illnesses & injuries and enables you to reach out to them and send them encouraging postcards.

The idea began thanks to a good friend, Tom Gallagher. Tom started sending my daughter, Hailey, diagnosed with ALL Leukemia in November 2006, postcards from all over the world as he traveled on business. In addition, Tom gave Hailey’s name and address to coworkers and friends that spanned 3 continents and they began sending Hailey postcards as well. The joy, surprise and happiness it brought to our entire family were truly incredible. Checking the mailbox, reading the postcards, then locating the countries and states on the map became a family routine. It gave us the opportunity to temporarily escape from our constant worry and fear by focusing on a brighter part of life.

Postcard stamp = .34¢
Postcard = less than $1.00
Sending a kid a smile = priceless.

Send a postcard. Make a kid’s day.
