NYC x NYON: Limited Edition "Penn Pals" Postcard Set (10x)NYPALS00
*Each set purchased includes a base donation amount (see below for details) but you may also choose to increase your donation from $5-$100*
In collaboration with @newyorkcity, we're excited to present our "Penn Pals" postcard series. With many of us still in one form of isolation or another, we felt inspired by the throwback notion of writing someone a letter... putting pen to paper; really considering our words without the luxury of backspaces and do-overs; and reminding a few people that we love them in one of the most enduring and intimate ways imaginable.
The name "Penn Pals" is an homage to the iconic station in New York, and also an acknowledgment that everybody could probably use an extra friend or two right now.
We wanted to make it as easy (and safe) as possible for you to mail these out, and so each postcard comes with Forever Stamps for shipping within the United States.
Affordability and philanthropy were also key considerations. We've landed on a base price of $20 per set, which covers our cost on 10 postcards, with stamps, as well as all shipping (to you), taxes, and processing fees.
The remaining proceeds (~$8 per order) will be donated in full to one of our favorite local organizations, the Food Bank for New York City, which provides wholesome and nutritious meals to over 1.5MM New Yorkers in need. You also have the option to add an additional donation -- starting at $5 -- 100% of which will be donated to the FB4NY.
"Penn Pals" Series 1 is limited to 250 sets. *UPDATE: SOLD OUT*
"Penn Pals" Series 2 is limited to 250 sets. *UPDATE: SOLD OUT*
"Penn Pals Series 3 is limited to 500 sets. *UPDATE: SOLD OUT*

Hope you're safe and sound! Thanks so much for your support.
