postcards, smile cards, postcards for a cause

I was lazily browsing online the other night, checking out this site that offers omnimount + similar products when I stumbled upon some opportunities to send smile cards {or those that you’d send without expecting something in return} or what I’d like to call postcards for a cause. It was posted in one of the numerous Postcard Swap Groups that I joined on Facebook.

Here is what the post says:

Hi everyone : I was just hoping I could get your help with something. Some friends of a friend have found out that their 4 year old son, Charlie, is suffering from a terminal brain tumour, and has only a few months to live. The family’s top priority is to make Charlie’s last days as memorable as possible. One of the things Charlie absolutely loves is receiving post, and he always rushes out to collect the post each morning. As such, his parents have started a postcard campaign, and are asking as many people as possible to send a postcard to Charlie, with just a simple, cheerful message on it. (Please do not mention his illness or include get well wishes.) If you are able to do this, it would really make a difference for Charlie and would be a great help and support for his parents during this difficult time.

If you would be kind enough to send this little boy a postcard or two, kindly send them to:

Charlie Codling
C/O Manor Farmhouse,
Little Beside,St Day,
Redruth, Cornwall

Another postcard for a cause will go to Wash + Tash, a young couple from Arizona, USA. Wash is suffering from brain cancer + Tash is looking after him, while waiting for her husband to fade away + die. I cannot imagine the kind of pain + suffering they are both experiencing at the moment, but I wish a postcard in their mailbox will somehow ease the pain + make the days brighter. Read more about their story from their  blog. + do send a postcard to this address:

Wash and Tashi Pratt-King
PO Box 27716
Tempe, AZ 85285
