Those of you who follow Ed Silva are probably already aware of his quest to help his grandson with a school project. If you are not (or don't follow Ed...and I don't know why you would not!) his latest blog below gives details and lists the states that are still needed.
He has linked to his previous blogs about this effort at the bottom of his post. If you live in one of the states listed, please take a moment to help. Just buy a postcard that shows your state or its attractions, write two quick facts about your state on the back and mail it to the address provided in Ed's blogs. The only caveat is that it must be postmarked in your state.
Many Rainers have stepped up and helped out but his grandson is still lacking 18 states to reach his goal of having cards from all 50 states. Won't you take a minute to join in the fun?
ActiveRainers Care and Have Helped Tremendously
We are nearing the end of the school year and with that will be the end of the postcard challenge for my grandson. The class had a task which was to reach out to friends and family across the country to get postcards with postmarks from the states as well as each card to include 2 facts of that state.
As loving grandparents, we did our part with selected stops along the drive back from vacationing in Florida. I of course felt the need to reach out on this blog platform and see if some sympathetic friends would assist and it has been wonderful for the activity.
The response from friends, family and ActiveRainers has been very positive and with just a few weeks left there are still a few gaps to fill over the next 3 weeks. So far, 32 states have been acknowledged as well as the Washington DC area
The missing states are detailed as follows:
My wife and I have stopped while on vacation to reach out and personally meet ActiveRainers. This school project for Raphael will have us making some additional friendship breaks with our future travels.
If this post should reach someone in the above open states, the rules are a postcard with 2 facts mailed as follows:
945 Queen St
Southington CT 06489
Attn: Raphael Antonacci
The content of the original posts are as follows:
Lest I forget, a special shout out to Diana Zaccaro for her help as if she were an aunt to Raphael.
