"For years I collected unwritten postcards. Envelope after envelope of the things arrived and I'd duly sort them into categories and file them away," said Bonnie. "A while back I looked at the huge collection and wondered why I ever thought collecting blank postcards would be fun. There is absolutely no connection to the person who sent them to me"
So what she did is gathered the thousands of postcards she had, and found people across the world who would "adopt" a postcard. Bonnie then sends the card in an envelope, where the receipient writes a message and mails it back. The card and the message are displayed on her website.
