Looking for my foreign LJ peeps!

My cousin put out a call for help for one of my local schools:

They are trying to get postcards from as many of the 50 states and countries around the world as they can. If you could send a post card I know they would be thrilled!

Here is the address:
Students of Robbinsdale M.S.
3730 Toledo Ave N.
Robbinsdale MN 55422

I'm trying to think of all the countries y'all are in.
felisblanco or msdillydally, it would be really awesome if one of you could send them an Iceland one.
dakegra, got a spare England postcard lying around?
dragonsally, I think you're the only Australian I've got wandering around in here. Note to self, acquire more Australians & Brits, cuz their accents are awesome!
30toseoul, I'd totally be hitting you up for one if your Post Office wasn't going to be closed for another 6 months! I love all my LJ peeps, but you definitely have the coolest address (no pun intended)

They're also looking for different states too, so really, any of you minions can feel free to send one. Except you chebutykin. The qualification is that they are from outside of Robbinsdale!

We did this for my niece, and picked some of the choicer state things to write on the back, like state marine mammal, or state folk dance.

State marine mammal? So what's the state marine mammal for Georgia? for Illinois?

Georgia's marine mammal is the Right Whale. Illinois doesn't have one as it is land locked.

I could easily get postcards sent from MA, FL, LA, PA Possibly TX.

Can I post this to Facebook?
Apr. 15th, 2010 06:26 am (UTC)
I would assume so. My cousin had it on her Facebook and it doesn't give info on any one specific kid.

I've got several Pennsylvania Postcards I could send them, but the postmark would say "Saint Louis Park."

Should I still send?

I don't have anymore details that what I got from my cousin's Facebook post that I put up there. I would guess that they're looking for cards mailed from the actual places though.
I'm bummed that they're doing this so late in the school year, because if it had been done before mid-February I could have gotten them a card from the South Pole.

Do they want postcards specific to where we are from?

I'd love to do this for your cousin.

There's no info on the kinds of cards to send, but I would guess that cards showing the places would probably be the most educational for them.

can I share this around LJ, FB etc?

I'll send one from Hokkaido on Monday. What a fun project!

I'll see if I can dig out a nice British one for them. Do you know if they want different places in foriegn lands? I mean, I'm going to be in London next weekend so I could send one from there & a local one.

I've left a message on the postcrossing forum!

Postcrossing is a grass-roots project started by Paulo Magalhães when he was in Portugal (now in Slovenia); the goal of Postcrossing to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free (almost). The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world. So basically, it justs costs you the price of a postcard and its international postage. Click on the URL below:
