Active Rainers Do Respond:  An Update to the Postcard Project

Last month, I wrote a blog looking for assistance from ActiveRain Members on behalf of my grandson, Raphael and his class.

 Calling All Active-Rainers Need Some Help For A School Project

The project is to get as many postcards as possible from across the country, each post marked from that state and each to have 2 significant facts about that state.

The response has been great and even touching as the cards get read and appreciated by Raphael and the rest of our family.

Active Rainers Do Respond:  An Update to the Postcard Project

The problem for many was not the time to get a postcard, but just finding one. For some people it was more a matter of knowing what a non-business postcard looked like. A larger issue for many is finding a place that would sell a postcard. This generated a second blog to attempt to assist.

 Where Can I Find A Post Card and What is It?

The list below are the states that are covered for receipt of postcards that should satisfy the class criteria. There are more cards promised yet, based on the comments left on my previous posts. Hopefully this blog post will jog a few members to find a card and send it within the next few weeks.

The project is to end in early May, so help is still needed.

Arizona*
California
Connecticut
Delaware
Florida
Georgia
Hawaii
Maine
Massachusetts
Michigan
New Hampshire
North Dakota
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
Virginia
Washington
Wisconsin
Wyoming


Alaska is promised, as is Oregon, Utah  and Texas.  Arizona has an * as it was sent in a letter with some additional info as well as a very personal note written to Raphael. All good, except the postmark was on the envelope and not on the postcard. We received a card from Maryland but it can't be used for the project as it as a business card.

The state of New Mexico is important to Raphael as it was the state he selected for a special report. Getting a postcard from this state would have high meaning for him.

We so thank all those that have responded so far and a heartfelt thank you for those that will still get a card off to us.

The address for the cards is:
Re/max Professionals
945 Queen St N
 Southington, CT 06489.

I will look over the house and see if I can come up with one from Oklahoma since that is not on the list.

Joe Pryor   That would be great if you could find one.

Doug Dawes   Would be appreciated as well.  Duplicate states are not a negative as we already have duplicates from Florida and California

Brian England   as the current AZ postcard does not have a postmark at all we would be so appreciative if you could find one and send it over.

Ed,

So happy that is going well for Raphael.  Glad California responded, there is so much to tell about our state. I have friends in AZ so if you need more, let me know!  A

I'm glad there was great response to the postcard project, Ed!  Raphael will likely learn a great deal from this.

I just saw this... And I don't know if you got Georgia covered or not, but even if you did I'll still send one from my area.  We have a local museum that is near and dear to my heart that sells something fun and informative.  How old is your grandson?

Tammy Lankford,   We caught Georgi when we drove back from FL but having one from non famly would be even better.  Raphael is 10 and this is a 4th grade project
