    So, my best friend’s grandmother (Grandma Mary) LOVES postcards. Whenever I go on vacation, I send her 1-3 a day so she has something fun in her mailbox from time to time. She is always so grateful for the gesture and gets so excited.

    Well, Grandma Mary’s 91st birthday is coming up (April 15th) and I was hoping that we could get people from all over to take a moment and send a postcard to her and wish her a happy birthday! If you could, I would appreciate it and it would just make it a super special birthday for her!

    Her address is:
    Grandma Mary
    P.O. Box 956
    Kellogg, ID 83837

    Thank you so much for reading and hopefully participating!

    (Removed from a previous edit: I did get permission from her family to give out her address for this.)

    PM the address to me. I'll be happy to send a post card from Louisiana. I've started Easter break, and I have 11 days of time to fill.

    You can post the PO Box here if you would like. Then when this is over, we can edit the post to delete it.

    You all are so amazing! Thank you so much for participating! She is going to be so surprised and I’m pretty sure delighted as well! I’ll let her family know to expect some and hopefully we’ll get a photo of her with them. She pulled out an old cork board last year to display the ones I sent to her. I think she said it was in her dining room. :D

    Is there a specific date we’re waiting to send the postcards on, or can we send them anytime?

    Any time is fine. Sometimes my postcards took over a week to get there.

    You can if you would like. She calls me "that sweet Katherine". Lol

    I showed the post to my friend today and she teared up at how many of you offered to help. She's planning to tell Grandma Mary about this whole thing when she receives the first ones (they phone every couple of days).

    Thank you again!

    This sounds fun, count me in too!
    91 years definitely time to celebrate! :stitch: does she like pics or destinations? Wondering which kind of postcards makes her smile most?

    Wow! Thank you guys! The granddaughter says she likes scenery, but anything is fine! She's not able to travel anymore (and just gave up driving in the past couple of weeks), so this "lets her see the world".
