I made a floor collage of some of the postcards I have received from Postcrossing members since I joined on 22 March 2015.
HERE is how this worldwide phenomenon began. Thank you Paulo for this brainwave in allowing people from all walks of life to join together to share postcards, lollies, chocolates, magnets and friendship from all over the world.
A message from the Found Paulo:
Can you believe it is 10 years today since I launched Postcrossing? 10 years!
It all started with a crazy idea, done on spare time, and my hopes were that some friends would amuse me by joining it.
Today, Postcrossing is a community of hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world and the project has enabled more than 30 million connections across the planet and, I hope, even more smiles than that. I feel both proud and humbled by what Postcrossing has become.
And, cliché as it may be, I want to say: thank you. Thank you for being part of this crazy idea and help making the world a smaller place, one postcard at a time. Thank you to all the members of the Postcrossing team, volunteers, forum moderators, ambassadors, supporters and everyone who has taken part in this project by sending and receiving postcards.
To celebrate Postcrossing's 10th birthday, we have put together a new sectionwhere you can join the party and wish Happy birthday to Postcrossing. Come visit and put your smile on the map!
