    Okay here is the deal. A couple of nice DIS'ers made my DD6 day witha postcard from a character in December, saying can't wait to see you when you come to visit. We would like to pay it forward.

    The first 3 people that send me a pm we will send their child a post card from their favorite character.

    Please send name of child, address and any special message and a couple of different characters in case we can't find first choice.

    Hope this helps build a childs belief in PIXIE DUST magic

    The move of the Pay it Forward sticky to the community subforum is going to kill this wonderful idea.

    Since the move nearly a week ago, this is the second post in a thread that usually gets a dozen a day. With the sticky no longer on the top of the board, those that don't know about it have no reason to look for it.

    I haven't gotten any bites on my previous post ( I got two) and I'm thinig that could be due to the move. There is a Fairy Godmailer sticky on the Families board, it seems to be the same general idea, maybe we could get them merged? Just a thought

    Could it again be a sticky on top of the Theme Parks Attractions and Strategies board?

    The problem I see is that this is such a cool idea to share with everyone, and too few people go to the community sub board for it to get noticed.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    I have been reading this thread and it is hard to tell who might be available to send a card. Here is our situation, we are going to the World March 14-21 for spring break. I hope someone out there is willing to send cards to my DD7 and DD5. PM me or respond and I will get you mailing info. Thanks so much to anyone who might help

    My DS's best friend is going to WDW the end of March for the first time to celebrate his 8th Birthday.

    Pooh is his favorite, would anyone be willing to send him a card saying Pooh can't wait to see you at WDW?

    Please PM me and the parents will definately pay forward!

    Thanks

    Thanks to Armywife

    Received the cards on Friday. The girls were so surprized. Jasmine came over on Friday to stay the weekend with Desiree, so they were together to get the cards. Jasmine was amazed that Princess Jasmine sent her a card. You could see in her face, how did this happen? She is getting so excited(her first trip) and Desi is too. Thanks again for taking some of your precious time with hubby to make their weekend. I hope you and your hubby had a great time. :goodvibes
