Plea for Postcards
I'm taking a break from blogging about France this weekend in hopes that I can get some of you involved in a project that will not take much time, but will mean a lot to someone who needs all the support he can get.
One of my friends from my home town has organized an online campaign, Postcard as Diamond, to send postcards to a very sick little boy.
The 8-year-old child is a member of my friend's extended family and is suffering from terminal leukemia. He has taken to collecting postcards from around the world as a way to spend time and, I suppose, as a short-term goal.
If you would like to help brighten this boy's day by sending him one or more postcards, write to me at the email address indicated on my profile and I will send you his address, or just leave a message and I'll find your email address through your profile.
And as my friend made clear, feel free to duplicate this post or his original post on your own blog as you see fit.
