Residents in Keyworth, Nottinghamshire, England addressed, stamped and mailed more than 8,000 postcards in a single day, claiming a Guiness World Record. The whole project was completed in a mere three hours.
The previous record for mailing cards from one location in 24 hours was 5,217, held by a village in India.
The postcard project was part of a fund-raising project to build a children' spark.
The cards were sent addresses around the world, as the residents of the town mailed them to friends, family and even strangers.
This was a most interesting effort. It used the mail to connect people. What a novel idea! Care to comment?
