Did you ever have a pen pal in another country? If you did, you probably loved getting handwritten letters in your mailbox, enjoying insights into the daily life of a person from different culture. This is a goal of Postcrossing project that connects the different parts of the world with real postcards, allowing anyone to send and receive postcards from all over the world.
In such a way many people made new friendships, learned new languages and discovered numerous cultural values. Launched eight years ago by Paulo Magalhães, the Postcrossing project really fixed the problem of the empty mailboxes.
Today, 45 million postcards have been received through Postcrossing among a community of more than 700,000 members worldwide. This successful community brings many people together by putting them in touch with each other and makes the world a happier place.
