Frank Warren started PostSecret as a community art project where he invited total strangers to anonymously mail in their deepest secrets on a homemade postcard. The response was overwhelming with Frank receiving over 1,000,000 anonymous postcards and counting.
All six PostSecret books have been on the New York Times Best Seller List. PostSecret Confessions on Life Death and God reached #1.
PostSecret.com has won three Webby Awards for "Best Blog on the Internet" and is today the most visited advertisement-free blog in the world with nearly 700,000,000 "visits".
The project has raised over $1,000,000 for suicide prevention and Frank Warren was awarded the Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 and was invited to the White House to share his thoughts on mental wellness in 2013. His TED talk is one of the most watch with over 2,500,000 views.
The postcards have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Visionary Art Museum in Maryland and there is a PostSecret album and play.
Frank lives in Germantown, Maryland, with his wife and daughter, and dog, Shadow (but his wife wants to move to California).
