The 100 Postcard Project is a grassroots initiative to revive the art of personalized, material human connection through the writing of postcards and letters. Collaborators on this project aim to write 100 postcards or letters in 100 days, between May 22 and August 29, 2010, artistically rendered or otherwise. Participants may also choose to explore other creative outlets for the duration of the summer, doing something each day towards their artistic goals. Our hopes for embarking on this project are two-fold: first, in an era where online social media are rapidly replacing more intimate forms of human connectivity, we wish to revisit the depths of connection possible โ€œoffline.โ€ Second, we wish to develop in our own creative crafts by making them a daily, intrinsic part of our lives. This blog is a collaborative companion effort to reflect on the experience, to share our progress, writing, photographs or art, or engage in other creative endeavors on a daily or weekly basis.

Please let us know if you would like to receive a postcard or letter from one of us. And we welcome you to join our efforts by writing postcards or developing in your own creative craft this summer!

  1. If you still need more places to send a postcard, I’m here in Belfast… love to you. So much love.

  2. This is a wonderful project, and if you’re still looking for recipients, I’d be thrilled. I have several snail mail penpals but they aren’t easy to come by these days.

  3. Oh how I love this invitation to come together in such a tangible and creative way. you have welcomed us home to the heart and soul of each other. there is something enchanting that happens when you put pen to paper. your
    creativity comes pouring out in all sorts of amazing ways.
    you touch places long forgotten or hidden away for so many reasons you lost count. I am joining today and just by saying that I’m feeling better already!
    I am forever grateful to you all for bringing back this lost art… Save the Post Card, Save the World!

  6. Hi, I’ve been living in Singapore with my family for the last 5 yrs and would love to receive a post card – such a lovely idea. For the past two months, I have been trying to get back to writing snail mail, even including a self addressed postcard – I love receiving snail mail! Please advise if you’re still accepting requests ๐Ÿ™‚
