Postcards!

We’re blushing. Thank you, Postcard Underground.

Over several weeks this past fall we received a flurry of very encouraging notes in the mail directed at our Solutions Stories, a project working to capture and communicate climate-smart clean energy success happening now in the Northwest economy. 

Many of the notes referenced the Postcard Underground, an anonymous group of letter-writers who send postcards to causes they find inspiring.

Here are a few of the messages we received:

“Hoping to be hopeful. Thank you for putting energy into Solutions Stories. The weary public must hear this sort of thing. It’s the only thing that can keep ALL of us at work shifting our paradigm. Keep up the good work. We’re listening out here.”

- Karen of Saint Paul, Minnesota.

“Thanks for your great work in promoting – simultaneously! – the positive, innovative solutions for our climate and our economy. Keep it up!!”

- Mary Jane (Postcard Underground)

Postcards!

A huge thank you to Karen and the rest of the Postcard Underground. We are humbled by this response and will use it as fuel for 2014.

Stay tuned for more as the Solutions Stories project moves forward!
