Merit marking

donated_fan.jpg

This (donated) fan in a Buddhist temple includes the husband’s name on one blade, the
wife’s on the other, and their address on the third. Why the inclusion of an address? How will this norm change over time? Email address? A Twitter hashtag, perhaps (“don8ed fan 2day #merit”)?
