Hi!  My son is in kindergarten and they are doing a little project called Find the Gingerbread Man.  The Game/Project goes that the Gingerbread man left the first day of school to visit all of the fifty states.  So what the teachers are asking is for out of state family/friends to drop a postcard with their state on it in the mail and for the kids to bring it in.  then they talk about the state and interesting things about it.  i was wondering if any of you out there would be willing to mail me a postcard from your state for him.  if you're interested please pm me for my addy. 

I asked for help a couple of years ago with this same project for my niece and the response i got from you guys was amazing.  we were short 2 states from having all 49!  There are some of the best people i've ever known on this site!  Thanks in advance!

What a wonderful idea.  I live in California, but I have postcards for both Idaho and Oregon, so if you don't mind them being sent from the "wrong" state send me a PM!
