In April, I received the following message:
My friend and I are hosting a mail art project dedicated to raising awareness of endangered species. We’d love it if you would consider promoting our mail art call, the more participants, the greater the impact we can make!
Mail a Smile’s endangered animals mail art call runs from
February 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017
and received pieces will be displayed in Budapest, Hungary in 2018.
-We accept decorated envelopes, postcards, letters, or anything “mailable”.
-There is no entry fee, we do not return with replies, and there is no size limit.
-Multiple entries are welcome, and we will accept multiple pieces dedicated to each animal.
-We ask that senders indicate the name of the animal, and they may optionally include their name, country, and social media contact on the back of the card/envelope.
-Mail art may be sent to:
Mail A Smile
Thank you for your time!

A worthy endeavor that these two friends have undertaken, in my humble opinion. I’m already giving consideration to the endangered species I’d like to represent… maybe I’ll choose the Amur Leopard pictured above. There is a list on their website and they’re highlighting the species as they receive them, in hopes of receiving one or more mail art pieces per animal on the list. Take a look, maybe you’ll be inspired to participate.
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
