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

I have seen calls for assistance from time to time, and for what I am asking it will help a child with a school project and probably take no more than a few minutes. Coincidently as we are taking a few days of vacation away from the cold in Connecticut, our grandson Raphael has gotten a project from his teacher.

Their charge is to collect post cards from as many states as possible and have them mailed back to them. Each postcard must be mailed within their respective state and must contain at least 2 facts about that state.

The project must be completed by the end of May.

As we had already gotten a card in Savannah, GA where we stopped to appreciate the town, he was most pleased to know he was getting mail.

As we are in Florida, we will certainly send him one from here as well as any states we stop at long enough on our way back home.

 

I am reaching out to my fellow Rainers for some help as there are a lot of states yet in our Union and I know I have at least reached out through the blogs to many along the way. 

 

Please find a few minutes to get a post card and mail it to him at the following address:

 

Raphael Antonacci
c/o REMAX Professionals
945 Queen St North
Southington, CT 06489

 

Thank you in advance as these projects are fun for the kids, and getting mail from around the country will leave an impression. Multiple cards from states is also going to be appreciated.

Jan Green    Getting a card from all states is the goal.  With some of the larger states multiples would be awesome as well. 

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents   That would be awesome.  Please make sure it has the Hawaii postmark as well.

Stopped by via your recent blog post Ed, I had missed this one originally. This is a great idea! Could you post an update at some point so we can see which ones are missing and get Active Rain members in these states involved?

Hi Ed -- I know Ron and Alexandra Seigel already have California covered for your grandson, but I'll send one from a different part of the state, the San Francisco Bay Area. Projects like this are a great way to spark interest in students.

Lottie Kendall    I made the statement on an earlier comment that multiples with the larger states would make sense as there are so many facts to be learned.  Thanks

Michael Eisenberg   Thanks so much, that's another state clicked off

I can do this too.  If he gets too many from one state he can always trade with others in the class.

OK I found an postcard that was destined for the trash and sorry that's it's one of my own, but it has a nice picture and it's from Hawaii - and ready to go in the mail since it already had a stamp on it (and never got mailed a couple of years ago!)

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089   The post mark from the island as well as the 2 facts are what would be most important as well as the kind heart that ends it.

Thank you

Debe Maxwell, CRS   It would be greatly appreciated, Thank you

Raymond E. Camp   Thanks in advance.  I went looking for CT postcards and understand why people have a hard time finding them, except for those that are near resort areas.

I found mine at a truck stop
