Man on mission to hand-deliver Galápagos postcards to strangers around the world

Jonny Beardmore has embarked on a unique journey to hand-deliver postcards from the Galápagos Islands to people around the world. Inspired by an old tradition where visitors to the Galápagos drop letters into a whisky barrel post box for others to deliver, Jonny launched the Galápagos Postman Challenge. His goal is to personally deliver 50 postcards across seven continents, reconnecting people through handwritten messages.

Jonny’s adventure is driven by a desire to honor his father, who recently passed away after battling ALS. Through his travels, he aims to raise $100,000 for ALS research. Documenting his journey on Instagram and tracking his route online, Jonny has already made stops in Antarctica, South America, Central America, and North America.

Despite initial apprehension from recipients, Jonny’s deliveries are met with gratitude and serve as a poignant reminder of the value of personal connection. For instance, Bob from Victoria appreciated receiving a postcard from his daughter Monica, facilitated by Jonny. As he continues his journey across Canada and beyond, Jonny reflects on his father’s legacy with pride and humor, envisioning him cheering on his efforts.

Jonny’s adventure emphasizes the importance of personal interactions and the joy of reconnecting with people in meaningful ways.
