PostcrossingPH had a special leap year meet-up get together at the Philatelic and Resource Center within the Manila Central Post Office.
A special postcard was created by some members of the group to commemorate the special meet-up with thousands of postcards send to friends and postcard collectors in every corner of the globe.
February 29, 2020 is a leap year and it only occurs once every four years. Some of the members came all the way from Laguna, Antipolo, Bulacan and other parts of Metro Manila.
In this age of internet and social media, There are still people who still cherish getting a postcard or greeting card with all the traditional hand writings, stamps and postmarks.
