Random Act of Smileness - Tam from Canada

I know, right now you are thinking "what is a random act of smileness or RAS?!?" I didn't know either until I received these cards from Tam. Basically, it is doing something for someone "just because" it will make them smile, which in turn makes you smile. Kind of like the card I received yesterday from Donna or the one last week from JJ.

At the end of last summer I was contacted out of the blue by Tam. She somehow came across my profile and saw that 1) I was trying to get a map card from every State and Province and 2) my birthday is October 31 - her favourite holiday. (Remember I told you that my birthday oddly plays a role for me in Postcrossing). She said she had a map card she would like to send to me to help with my collection. Well, you can just imagine my surprise when I received four fabulous map cards of British Columbia and one of Alaska! She writes that while she lives 400 kms north of Vancouver in a town called Kitimat she is only 90 miles from the Alaskan Panhandle. Funny, I just realized now she wrote kms when talking about BC and miles for the US. I do that with temperature sometimes! This was truly a fun week for me getting these amazing cards. Kind of like an early birthday.


  1. That is so thoughtful of Tam to send you those nice cards for your collection. They are really great map cards. I love the Random Act of Smileness :)

  2. Very cool...I've never seen a map postcard around here...but then again, I wasn't looking. Something tells me I'm going to be paying more attention to postcards since I found this blog.
