This week is International Postcard Week. It’s fun sending mail, isn’t it? At Owlkids, we really love receiving mail, too. Did you know that every time you write a letter to us, you’ll receive a postcard back? That’s right!
Meet Karen Cooke, she’s the person who hand writes every postcard back to our readers.
We asked Karen a few questions about her cool postcard-writing job!
chickaDEE: How long have you been writing postcards for Owlkids?
Karen: I have been writing postcards for Owlkids since 1983.
chickaDEE: How long does it take you to write each postcard?
Karen: It takes me about 3-5 minutes to a write a postcard. I will comment on the reader’s drawing, question or joke and then I usually send them a joke or talk about the current issue.
chickaDEE: What’s your favourite thing about writing postcards to readers?
My favourite thing about writing postcards is being able to send a card by mail to kids as I know it is always exciting to receive a letter in the mail, especially when most things are sent by email. I also enjoy seeing all their great drawings, questions and funny jokes.
chickaDEE: Where is the farthest you’ve ever sent a postcard?
Karen: Hong Kong!
If you’d like to send a postcard to Chirp, chickaDEE or OWL, the address is:
10 Lower Spadina, Suite 400
We look forward to reading your letter!
