the benevolent postcard society.
i’m so happy to have joined up with the benevolent postcard society! i rarely get ‘real mail’ these days, unless of course it’s another catalog, or of course one of those pesky bills. but the benevolent postcard society is a fantastic idea created by illustrator and blogger lori langille of the blog automatism.
A postcard exchange and art project in one, the aim of the Benevolent Postcard Society is to bring a smile to its members through the random exchange of postcards from September 2009 to September 2010. At the beginning of each month, members send a cheerful, amusing, inspiring, pretty or quirky postcard to each other — either handmade or readymade. At the end of the year, all the postcards exchanged will be collected and published as a book, the final result of a year’s sharing of good karma through random acts of kindness. Here’s a couple of postcards I’ve received so far:
Please note that the BPS unfortunately cannot accept any new members since August 2009. But it’s fun to check them out online anyway, and maybe just start sending out your own random postcard acts of kindness!! who doesn’t love ‘real mail’, right?
this is gonna be how it goes.
i´m the boss, so follow me.
and put your backpack back on!
