Talking Pay it forward

I can't send out PM's because I don' have enough post.

I'm going to WDW on Oct 19th. Could someone send my son a postcard? If so, pls send me a PM...

I'll send postcards to the first 4 families that PM. Please send me:

Child'/Adult's name
Address
Favorite Character
Any special wording you want to put.

It's exciting to know that someone's face will be lighting up when they receive their postcard!!!

You've got the definition of "pay it forward" right in your e-mail. Someone is sending your little ones postcards, and rather than paying them back, you are paying the favor forward by sending postcards to someone else.

And, yes, you seem to have it right. I haven't done this yet, but hope to for our November trip. You get some addresses, and while you are at WDW, you send postcards "from a favorite character" to a future WDW visitor. The WDW postmark, makes it kind of like a convincing letter from Santa with a North Pole postmark.

Have fun!

I see you are going in November, we will be there October 20-26, do you need me to send cards for your little ones? Please PM me if you do. I have gotten some responses for myself and am looking forward to, "paying it forward"

Thank you very much for the offer, but another dis-er has already offered. So, we should be all set.

I wasn't planning on posting my offer yet, since my dates are so far in advance, but since I'm here...

I'll be doing the World in mid November and am looking forward to sending magic to some other little guys and gals. Anybody going in December and need a FG? If so, drop me a PM.

I am both looking an offering...

We're heading down Sept. 20-23

I would love to have someone send my daughter a postcard before we leave if there is anyone going between now and Sept. 5th.

I can take 5 folks who need a fairy godmailer while I'm there this time. We're only going for a long weekend or I'd take more.

Thanks in advance!

I still havent heard from one that I sent out several cards for... had to scroll through to see if I recognized the name... next time I wont delete... but one person got a postcard yesterday... so the mail is acting a little wonky again. By scrolling back I saw your post about your DH.... GO HOKIES!!! except Im not an alumni... just a LOT of family has gone to school there, that it runs in my blood even my car is a Hokie/Disney car

everyone enjoy your upcoming trips!!

HI, i'm looking for 2 post-cards to be sent to some first timers. We are going down the first week of Sept. 2007. The first card to be sent to a preteen girl and the other to a family with 3 girls and 1 boy ( preschoolers except for the boy).

Hi just wanted to say thanks, both families received their card and were very excited. Thank you so much. The preschoolers couldn't believe Mickey actually sent them a post card! I apologize, i don't remember who agreed to send them and the pm's were deleted.

To those whom i am sending postcards, i have the stamps, and addressed packed in my Bible so i won't forget.
