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.

I sent a few out this morning so he should have them in a few days. The post lady didn't know that Poland was now part of the EU so didn't know how much postage to charge me!

E-mail the address to me at sarah[at]becomingsarah.com

I'll send him a little something from sunny California =) That's worth de-lurking for any day of the week.

I found your blog through blog searching for leukaemia. I run Quilts 4 Leukaemia (see blog profile) and would love to make a quilt for him. I'm in the process of finishing Quilt 9 so if his parents are agreeable, could you get in touch.
