COVID-19


I shared this post to Postcards from Mickey's Facebook and Instagram accounts earlier today, and thought it's important to share here too. I wish you and your families safety and good health as our world heals from this pandemic.

This is the first autograph signing I ever did for Postcards from Mickey, back in September 2018.
It is with a heavy heart that I share this photo with you, as Postcards from Mickey is pausing all mailings for the time being. 😔📬

This has been a very difficult decision to make... Which is why it has taken me so long to come to a conclusion. But from the very beginning of Postcards from Mickey, from the very day this photo was taken, I have always had the kids’ best interest in mind. And with that, I know this is the right choice for right now.

Recent CDC study results show that COVID-19 can live on paper and cardboard surfaces for up to 24 hours. While USPS has reported the company is taking every precaution possible (and I trust that they are) — the health of these children is not something I want to risk. I have no control over who, or how many people touch mail in transit; whether it travels nationally or internationally.

Majority of the children that receive autographed postcards from Postcards from Mickey are at a higher risk than any of us. Their bodies are ill, going through treatments, and often have compromised immune systems.

I never thought I’d have to make a decision like this — but I hope it is respected. I wish everyone well during this time, and will continue to spread a little magic with some Disney memories on this account. 

If you would like to request a postcard to be mailed when the time is deemed safe, please do so. I will still be addressing postcards to children, and I plan to drop them all off in one big batch of magic mail as soon as I can. 🐭📬

Thank you for your understanding. Stay healthy.
