We run a workshop for kids who like to make stuff and their friends. Each month we'll box up and ship "shares" of our projects/ideas.
99 backers pledged $8,406 to help bring this project to life.

A shadowy cabal of really nice people

We've been getting notes from the Postcard Underground! They've been coming in over the past few days -- from Christy in Minnesota, from Lily T, from Sue -- all saying incredibly kind and awesome things about the CSE project.

An excerpt from one of the postcards:

Reading about Parts and Crafts, how it works and what theory it's born from, has made me sit back, breathe deep, and feel thankful. I appreciate the obviously spirit and spunk that is fostered in the world because of your work and I hope you never stop building community.

What a lovely surprise!

A google search turns up nothing -- as does a Kickstarter search for "send cheerful postcards to strangers." All postcards are stamped from Saint Paul, MN, but no return address. It's a mystery! Anyone have any ideas?

While we're on the topic of the Twin Cities I want to take a second to plug Leonardo's Basement, a huge inspiration for us. They've been around for about 10 years in Minneapolis -- we've never met them personally, but they've been a big influence on our work and outlook.

They also have a great video, which you can view here:

Thanks to the Postcard Underground, to all our awesome backers, and to those who have seen this page and let other people know about the project. We've got fourteen days left -- please continue to tell your friends, post to your blog, shout from the rooftops, and otherwise help us spread the word!
