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.

I would suggest doing another post the beginning of April letting us know what states he is missing so we can all help by contacting family and friends in those states to try and get them for him.

Hi everyone,
This is Raphael's mom. Raphael and I have been following this post daily and he is very excited. He received 2 cards already! Thank you so much for any contributions. It should be fun to read all the state facts.

Hey, I can do it for Hawaii. Of course, I have to first find a postcard but at least I got a little time. I don't even know how much a postcard stamp costs.

Spoke too soon. I just found a postcard that was given to me when I was last in Holualoa a few days ago. I didn't know why they gave me a postcard at this art studio or even why I took it but I know what I will do with it.
