I'll grab one this weekend when I go into town and send it off ASAP though it does take a week or so to reach the states. I travel a lot so if I go into one of the nearby countries any time soon I'll send another one.

Please send pics or an update when you complete the project. I'd love to hear the kids reactions to all over!

Disboarders were great about sending postcards for DD's 1st grade class project last year. I'd love to "pay it forward." They ended up getting all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and Italy. I'll be asking again next year, when my younger daughter is in 1st. ;)

Princess Erin

Hi everyone! Thanks again for all the replies already. We really appreciate it and the kids LOVE to get the postcards everyday and read all your great messages. Getting repeats is not a problem and we would love as many postcards as we can get. Last year we had over 100, but did not get all fifty states. We graph all the results of what we receive by the end of the year and I can't express how much the entire fifth grade last year loved this project. Thanks for all of the help and keep them coming! I will post a picture of our board from last year.

How about Florida, New Jersey and New York? Do you need a note written on them or just the postcards? Always glad to do something for a child or someone who helps a child.

Also do they need to be postmarked in those states or are just he postcards themselves enough?

I would maybe edit the 1st post and put what states you still need. Send me a PM if you need either PA, NJ, NY, or DE. I'm a local truck driver and hit these states semi-regularly. If there's a list and I go to one of those states I'll gladly make a stop for you. Sounds like a fun project. Would have been almost impossible when I was in school. Back then the internet was just a baby:lmao:

I have posted a picture on my school website of what our board looked like last year, when we received all of our postcards. Unfortunately, last year we did not receive all fifty states. The link is below where you can see the picture. Thanks again for all of your help! The kids come in every morning asking what postcards we received and they cannot wait to read the messages. They truly appreciate all of your help and I find students throughout the day reviewing the map and learning about the different states. Keep the cards coming!

Good luck with the rest!

Hello everyone! We are having an awesome time getting all of your postcards. We are one state short from getting all 50 and my students are so excited to get that last state. If anyone from North Dakota would send us one that would be amazing! Thanks again to everyone for all of your help. This has been the most successful year yet with the project. And please remember, duplicates are always great. The students love any cards they receive.

Have you tried to send a pm to gator75. This person offered to send one. Maybe a personal message will help remind them.
