Postcards from the Edge

[UPDATE 07/25/12: Postcards from the trail are no longer available but you can purchase unused postcards from my Etsy Shop.]

My close friends know that I love to send postcards while on my journeys. Last summer, while I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail, I sent over two dozen postcards to friends and family, updating them on my trip. If you would like to be a part of my big journey this summer and receive a personalized postcard* postmarked from one of the small towns I’ll be traveling through, donate just $10 or more to my site using the Paypal link on the right of this page. If you donate $20 or more, I’ll include a small watercolor sketch on the back of your postcard. These 3.5×5-inch postcards feature artwork from my journals and will be with me on my trek this summer. As I come out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and in to civilization to resupply with food and other provisions, I’ll send contributors a postcard with a short, personalized update on how my travels are going.

I have just a limited run of these postcards – eight different designs in all – so I’ll try to update here in the comments section when supplies are running low. Details are listed below.

So here’s what you need to do:

  1. Click on the DONATE button on the right side of this webpage.
  2. By default, donations are set at $20 – I don’t know why – but you can change that to any amount you want once you log in.
  3. Make sure that you include your name and address in the “Message” section of the donation so I know who you are and where to send the postcard. If you have a burning question about my journey and want me to answer it on the postcard, feel free to include it with your donation.
  4. Both you and I will receive confirmation of the donation. Once I see it (and it could be a week or two when I do, depending on my Internet connection), I’ll send out your postcard when I have the opportunity.

After August 1st, this postcard project comes to a close, as does my journey.

*For those young readers out there, postcards are kinda like hand-written tweets that are sent through the US Postal Service.
