You can now Invite the World to Vancouver through a new digital postcard platform. Simply visit the site, select a series of photos or upload your own, and they’ll send a real post card to the recipient. They’ll cover the postage, print the card, and have it delivered.
I for one, love receiving actual tangible mail so this idea sounds really fun. Your recipient can even see what one of your personal photographs look like as a printed up post card, should you select that option. When you send a postcard from the Invite the World website you are also entered into a draw to have 4 friends or family come and visit you in Vancouver with flights, accommodation, and some spending money included.
To promote this new initiative, the local partners of Invite the World have offered up $100 for Mink Chocolates to give away to one of my readers. Mink is located at the foot of Hornby Street and serves up some of the most original hand-crafted chocolate creations around.
Here’s how you can enter to win:
- Leave a comment on this post listing what landmark, place, or scene that you would put on a post card (1 entry)
- Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
I will draw one winner at random from all entries next week at 12:00pm on Thursday, November 3, 2011. The Invite the World site and contest for participants over there is open until December 31, 2011.
Update The winner is Elaine Davies!
