Diana (secondhandrose) | 222 comments I read about this initiative on the Postcrossing blog. You can pay to have a postcard sent from Timbuktu, Mali. They are not cheap but you are supporting unemployed tourist guides (tourism has died due to civil unrest) and supporting the Mali economy.
I'm excited to have some hand written cards sent from Mali to friends and family.

Karen Imas (goodreadscomkima) I am new to this group. As an avid collector of postcards, books, and records, I was intrigued by this group. Anyone out there interested in conversing, I am available. -kima.
