Hi, I’m so sorry to bother you all about the meet but please read, my name is Sylvie, I have been very sick fighting a rare progressive neurological disease that causes extreme pain and many other symptoms. I have been suffering in the hospital or assisted living with no other trips at all in 7 years. I’m very isolated, alone and due to pain I can’t do much. Mail is the one of the only things I can do sometimes or even look forward to. Most days I can just browse the postcard galleries or forums in bed. This would be really special to me if someone could send me one… if this is possible please message me for my address. It would mean a lot to me. Either way, Thank you for reading this and have a wonderful meet up :slight_smile:

Thank you for connecting and your wishes. Yes, I am gifting a post card to each postcrosser attending the meet-up. This will hopefully start to help and promote the meetup and postcrossing too. This PC will mostly be signed by the attendees or blank as each one prefers as they arrive at the meet-up venue.
This is available from 10am till 12pm at the meetup venue

  • Cafe Universal (details mentioned above).

My team and I would love to send you one signed meet-up card. If you wish to receive a PC sent on 1st Oct 2021 celebrating the World Postcard Day, kindly share your details in dm.
Thank you so much for your support.

Happy Postcrossing !
