Send Valentine’s Day ‘Dey’ postcards to Bengals players for the benefit of the Joe Burrow Foundation

Cincinnati (WXIX) – The Cincinnati Bengals left town on Tuesday, but when they return, postcards will be waiting for them to celebrate their historic season, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Stationery company Poeme is selling postcards sent to Paul Brown Stadium.

The idea is for them to return to Paul Brown Stadium in time for the Super Bowl, but also as a Valentine’s Day greeting.

Best of all, the proceeds from the postcards will benefit the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund.

“We thought it would be really interesting to give people the opportunity to send some fan mail,” explains Poeme owner Kristen Folzenlogen. “We came up with some postcards to send to your favorite team members, wishing them luck and thanking them for a great season because we’re all excited.”

Folzenlogen said she saw two Bengal tiger designs by local artist “Whodrew” on social media and asked if they could use them for postcards.

These cards are for kids who want to write a note to the player.

Folzenlogen says you can also buy one for the host of your Super Bowl LVI viewing party, who can frame the card or use it as a memory of the historic event.

The cards have been sent to the stadium, and you can even buy tiger stamps at Poeme.

The cards are expected to arrive at Paul Brown Stadium on Valentine’s Day, the day after the Super Bowl.

“It’s just community engagement. I mean that’s what sports is about: it brings people together,” Folzenlogen said. “You’re cheering for an ordinary thing. How much goodness has happened in this city since we’ve done so well, I mean it’s all very important.”

The Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund has seen an influx of donations since Burrow won the Heisman Trophy. According to the pantry, people donate in increments of nine: Burrow’s jersey number.

“Getting together to support things like Bengals, like food banks, it just makes you feel good about your city,” Folzenlogen said.

Postcards are $2.50 each or $10 for five.

Poeme is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Their address is 3433 Michigan Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio.
