Your mail-in Postcard Challenge entries are welcome by June 1st, 2020 to be eligible for 1 of 5 prizes. We have not determined the method or date(s) of the postcard sales. Thank you in advance for your participation and patience as we plan creative ways to sell 1200 – 1500 miniature quilted & handstitched postcards (arriving daily!) to benefit Edmonton AB Glenrose Paediatric Brain Injury Unit. Please note that once the date and method of sale of postcards is determined we will announce the final deadline for all postcards to be received to participate in the sale.
