Another 48 hours and we have all this…

I did say I would only post every week. But this is too many not to post.
Here is a list of all the responses we’ve had since my last post:
#303 is now on a fridge & #719 on a mantle piece.
#693, #207 & #76 & #534 all  got a lovely long replies.
#218 & #664 & #220 & #114 are short but sweet.
Hayley’s response to #610 has been written with much thought.
#557 has got an answer to his statement.
#341 discusses dinosaur & animals in Canberra.
#161 I think brought out their inner child & we’re particularly happy about that.

I also wanted to show you all the numbers of people that have looked up the website from all over the world.
It is quite a lot:

The first replies have arrived….!

We had a little plethora in the last 24 hours of responses near and far.

The Anchor on Hope St, Battersea received two and replied to both #542 and #152.
Hope St, White Gum Valley has been very responsive: #205, #179,
Jack from Mosman Park (#547) has let us know that they have an annual Hope Street Christmas Party Which makes us very happy. Some of your neighbours got postcards too Jack :)
And one from Preston, Vic from Melina (#720) who have Grandparents in Perth.
Killian answered Hana’s pressing question (#30)
And we’re particularly thrilled to see #72 get a response. This postcard’s message made our heart burst a little. Thank you Hope Street Hotel.

Time to Post.

We are posting the pic
Today. And Tomorrow.
I like to try and visualise their journey across the globe.
Flying on planes to the far curves of the globe…

All the photos from Awesome Festival are up here.
I’d like to point out that there are probably a few mistakes.
Because we’re human.
Some may have missed being photographed, some have duplicate numbers, some are a little fuzzy.
But we hope it doesn’t stop any being replied to or the scale of the project.
Keep your eyes peeled for replies.
We’ll do some posts each week linking to the replies we get.

Till then…

xx alex.

756! 756! 756!

Awesome Festival has finished.
And we made a whole 756 postcards.
We soon realised that 2000 was a tad optimistic and set our sights on 700.

756 bits of art being posted around the world!
We need to first edit all the photos and put them here, ready for replies.

A reply for Mia

Mia got a reply yesterday.
From a lady up north in Queensland.
She tells us a little about herself.
And quite perfectly, her family says they “live in hope”.  :)

Hope from Freo & Alaska.

Very excited to announce that we have had replies!

Google Maps numbering proved a little awry, but it ended up finding the right house anyway…
And Olivia replied too on behalf of the 4 inhabitants and 11 chooks.

Thank you to you both for replying. It really has made us very hopeful about many things!
