Happy Mail Giveaway - 52 Weeks of Mail

It is officially World Post Day - October 9, marking the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union’s establishment in 1874. The union aimed to create and maintain a structure for the free flow of international mail around the globe. In the spirit of keeping the free flow of communication the Etsy greetings team has taken the challenge to strengthen bonds thru the art of penmanship. Not giving much enphasis on how we write but why and to whom. We, Etsygreetings team, along side many other friends have challenged ourselves to a 52 Weeks of Mail experience. We vow to strengthen our relationships by sending one card or letter for every week for the next 52 weeks until October 7th of 2012. Relive the excitement and be part of this happy mail experience.

We will simply love you for it because we all love happy mail.  
Happy mail you say? Ofcourse happy mail, you know,
The mail that you be-friend the mail man for.The letter in which 
Grandma shares her date with Mr. Dudley, the love letters that release butterflies in the pit of your stomach, a happy card that moves and shifts simply to say hello. The words that bring smiles and happy thoughts to those that receive such gems of happiness are filling post offices first thing tomorrow morning.
How exciting! Aww, I loves happy mail. 

52 Weeks of Mail officially began this week and today is the first day. To start my 52 weeks of mail I have entered all those that followed the rules and commented, liked and loved to shop into the drawing to be my first 5 letters of correspondence:

52 weeks of Mail Giveaway

Etsy Greeting team is inagurating 52 Weeks of Mail

Direct from our friends over at Handmadeology please read why this project has been a must start
 in our Etsy Greetings Team's hearts.

Of course we all love the internet, but there are many among us who just love to send and receive cards and letters.
When you think about it, it’s amazing to realize how easy it is to send cards, letters, and greetings anywhere in the world. Sometimes it takes a while to get there, admittedly, but there’s nothing like the look and feel of handwriting on paper. It’s not as fast as the internet, of course, but it’s just as easy, it’s accessible to everyone, and it’s deeply personal.
You might not know that World Post Day is coming up on October 9, marking the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union’s establishment in 1874. The union aimed to create and maintain a structure for the free flow of international mail around the world.

The Etsy Greetings Team, a collection of over 100 artists from all over the globe who collaborate to promote the art and craft of card making, is celebrating World Post Day by issuing a challenge that we are calling 52 Weeks of Mail. This idea sprung from one member’s desire to keep in touch better with friends and loved ones, and to be intentional about relationships. The idea is for people to commit to sending at least one personal note, card, letter, or postcard to people they know, once a week for a year. Of course, you can send MORE than one, but that’s up to you. Just think how happy this will make the Postal Services around to the world—not to mention those old friends!!
Here are three ways you can participate: read full article here

Yay, I love happy mail!

Speaking of  happy news I will be giving away 5 special designed greeting cards to start this experience on a happy note. All you have to do is let me know who you plan to write to and why. All the emails of those who have commented will be then put into my custom mail box and shuffled around. Then my daughter will draw at random the 5 winners to receive these great cards so that they can send to their loved ones in return.

This is how it will work.

Starting today..
Leave your comment here on my blog and receive 1 entry.

Find me on my facebook page and leave and additional comment and receive another entry.

If you have purchased an item from my shop here in the past month, you my friend, have received an additional entry.

Only 3 entries will be accepted by participant.

The winners will be randomly selected and posted on World Post Day, October 9th. Which is this Sunday.
I look forward to your comments.
As the 52 Weeks of Mail progress
I invite you to share your stories here as we continue to make new friends communicate with old friends
are strengthen one another one postage stamp at a time.
