I would want these postcards because I have had a wish to send "Just Thinking Of You" notes to my friends for years, but never had a large amount of postcards.=]. Speaking personally, I have recieved cards randomly a couple times, and it makes my day. I know a lot of friends that I've lost touch with but still care about who are going through rough times right now, and I would like to cheer them up and let them know they are not alone.<3
I would use them for my business. Because of Paul's MS diagnosis it has become very important for him to get enough rest. I chose to quit my job to work at home so I could have a better handle on things at the home front so he could continue to work and then come home and rest and know that things here are taken care of. The less expenses I have to run my business the more money we have for things like doctors appointments and fun stuff for the kids. So 100 postcards for invites would be a huge blessing!
Wow, what a great prize! Unfortunately I am outside of the USA. However, if I were to be able to partake my answer would have simply been to look 100 people in the phone book that I do not know and just send them a special message (whatever the Lord would lead me to write) and then ask if they wouldn'd mind sending out 3 post cards to people they don't know with the same message that was on their card they received. You know kinda like paying it forward to keep it ongoing! :)
I would send them to Xangans or people who need to be cheered up, cuz I hate not being able to see people in real life, but you know, a postcard could be pretty close. Then I would send one to roadlesstaken with a XangaSecret on it.
Then I would give one to my cat and maybe one to my grandma.
Then I would put a few in mailboxes of people that I love that need cheered up.
Then I would set some out anonymously saying things that will brighten people's day.
Then I would give one to my sister because she makes me cards all the time and I never give any to her.
Then I would give one to you, because you would be the reason I had all these wonderful cards in the first place.
Then I would eat some rice, because rice is delicious, and I love it. Also because I'm asian. I might have some chicken with it too.
Then I would continue giving out these postcards in any way I feel is neccessary. Like I could give one to that old man at the nursery home that always eats ice cream, or to the lady who runs big brothers big sisters, cuz she's kind of a grump and needs some cheerful words. I'd just give them to random people who want them or need them. Then I would be all out of postcards.
Once upon a Christmas eve Saint VI had something up her sleeve 100 post cards to award if you aren't out of your gourd if you can make her laugh (without using a giraffe) So far Bricker59 has threatened to sue Justplainmorgie wants to send them to me and you Ampersands Annonymous wants them for kids who are ill Cherylann94 wants to send em to friends and share good will they would help kpsmom3 meet her business need Others made comments or requests indeed My poetry is something awful (but if I won it would be lawful) I truly have no need for the prize just wanted you to recognize that you are special it's true Sending Christmas Blessings to you
Oh for fun! One hundred post cards would be such a gift. I'm in the habit of buying random ones and saving them. In my hope chest they sit until I get a random urge to send one out. I grab a card and send it to a friend to surprise her/him. Some days I mail them, other days I slip them books in the library with something inspirational written on the back. Every great once in awhile I'll pick a random address out of the phone book and send an inspirational quote their way. It's my very own personal form of post secret that I love oh so much. The last one sent was to my friend Karna whom lives in Norway. I stuck a best friends sticker on the back. No more, no less. ♥
