Sunday Find: Send Postcards For a Cause (or two)

Hello Readers and Writers! It's been a few days since I've popped on to the blogosphere and while I do have some great mail to get you all updated on, and more than a few letters to reply to, I wanted to bring your attention to a couple of postcard projects that I have had the pleasure to stumble across within the last week.

  • Postcards for Arianna--Diagnosed in December of 2011, Arianna is a 9 year old little girl fighting off a vicious form of childhood leukemia. In order to keep her spirits high, her mother is asking two things; One, that if you have an extra postcard you would be kind enough to send it to her daughter and two, that you will be kind enough to share the page with your friends or letter writing circles. It is the family's hope that Arianna receives postcards from all over the world.

  • Postcards for Wes-Help me fill a 5 year old w/ cancer's mailbox--Wes is a 5 year old little boy who is being treated for  Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer. Wes loves getting mail, especially postcards from all around the world! He has even recently had the chance to get signed postcards from a number of Disney characters! You can send Wes a postcard by going to the link above and track his progress by going here.

  • Postcards for Libya--This project is meant to bring a smile to the face of Libyan children and refugees living in Tunisia, by sending them something with a warm greeting in the mail. By going to the official site you can also learn about ways to donate money (through reputable organizations providing aid and volunteers in Tunisia) if you so choose. The cause also has a facebook page.

All of these links and more can be found on the blogs facebook (here). I welcome any questions or concerns, also, if there are any "mail for a cause" programs that you are aware of or participate in please let me know and I will be happy to let the Internet know! I plan to be dropping a few cards in the mail this week for each of these groups along with my regular outgoing mail.

I hope you all are having a great weekend and looking forward to the mail coming on Monday!
