Fancy a Postcard Buddy?

I can't believe it's almost a year ago since I blogged about the last World Diabetes Postcard Exchange :)

If you haven't heard of it then here's a little info taken from the brand new website:

"Welcome to the home of the World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange, an initiative to connect people affected by diabetes from around the world with each other during the month of November in celebration of World Diabetes Day and Diabetes Awareness Month. Participants in the Postcard Exchange send and receive handmade postcards with assigned Postcard Buddies. They create postcards using the blue circle, the international symbol of diabetes, in their design. The Postcard Exchange was created to promote healing through Creativity, Connection, and Activism"

This year is looking to be even bigger than last year, so head on over to the website for more information and to fill in the new registration form! If you have any questions please contact the lovely creator of WDDPE Lee Ann Thill at

I got a really lovely postcard from a PWD in New York last year, and can't wait to find out who my postcard buddy will be this year :)

So get signed up and get creative!
