Born c. 1812, a slave who became the first African American woman to be employed as a mail carrier by the US Postal Service because she was able to hitch a team of six horses to a stagecoach faster than any other applicant.

The Israeli postal service sorts over 2 million pieces of mail daily, and inevitably some of those letters come addressed to God. Rather than consign the letters to bins of undeliverable mail, letters addressed to God are collected and deposited at the Western Wall a few times a year.

Document the voyage of postal mail! Over at Toad Haven, they sent out a package, "asking every postal worker who touched it to take a picture of the mail's journey across country." The package was sent from California to Virginia and back home again. This is a great activity for kids to learn about community helpers, as well as geography.
