Send a friend a postcard from Timbuktu

"Postcards from Timbuktu" was started by some friends in 2016 with a mission to help unemployed tour guides gain an income after tourism ceased due to conflict.

🌍 Send a hand-written postcard from Timbuktu to anywhere in the world!

📮 Postcards start their journey from Timbuktu, then transported to Bamako, where they end up on a flight to France and onwards to their final destination.

✍🏼 In addition to several images of Timbuktu, you can also pick a hand drawn postcard, designed by a student, with additional proceeds going to their classroom.

This is such a cool idea, especially in times when many of us have been isolated. This project has been featured in the media in recent months, so it's also fantastic to see this idea have such longevity.

And of course, people can send postcards to the team in Timbuktu, which are featured on their Instagram:

This looks like a wonderful idea. It should happen in many other places! It's nice to see people sending back postcards to the tour guides in Timbuktu, too.
