Posted:Hey all, this is weird but I need help from the global friends for my sons school project.

He is reading a book at school about a boy who gets flattened by a chalkboard and mails himself around the world. The class is going to draw pictures of themselves, write a letter and mail it off around the world. Whomever gets the letter is supposed to send a postcard to the address on the letter (to my sons class at the school) and then send the letter on to someone else.
Whoever has the picture and letter in May is to send it back to the school, because that is when it ends. They are going to track the postcards and see whose letter made it the farthest.
It doesn't require a whole lot but it definately requires a commitment to follow through on this, and I would absolutely love for any HoPpers to take part in it that would be interested. I think it is an awesome chance for Noah to get to know a little more about who I am talking with when on here!

If you would be interested, please post here and I will email you with further details. Thanks so much!

Posted:I know that Big Dav has had it and moved it along (thanks for the head's up! wink ), so it is on it's way.

I have Custom Bug with an address in Shropshire and Woodnymph in London who sent me her addy to be added into the list as well. So I will be sending a pm to those people on the list who will have to send it to one of these two, so please keep an eye out (and when I figure out who I will post here as well!)

Thanks again all, this is so exciting for us!

Posted:Faberge, isn't it supposed to go to Jafar after you? Just confused.

I have to add Polythene in Surrey as well, and PLEASE>>>>>> whoever gets it next, do not send it to Dom. Plans have changed and it can't go to Malta so DO NOT SEND IT TO MALTA! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Rogue Dragon, when it hits your side of the world, I will get you on the list.

Whoever gets the list next remember...please cross Dom off. If you could PM me before sending it on, I will send you the addresses of who to add to the list though! Thanks, oh, and please try to get it so that it makes it to everyone on the list, as I would hate for anyone to get skipped after so much enthusiasm!

Thank you so much all for everything!
Hug and loves!
Pele

Sadly, he hasn't. frown I am thinking with the whole Code Orange US crap and holiday mail it got hung up along the way. I promise I will let you know the day he comes home triumphant. He does come home everyday with a daily report of who got postcards from where, so I know he has his watchful eye on it.

Jafar, isn't that fun? I am glad you got a chuckle from it. I know I did when I helped put it together. Sure beats that stupid balloon thing I did as a school kid! smile

Thanks again!

Posted:Zeuya will be sending it on shortly, I just got the pm.
I am so thrilled.

I have asked Dyke Boy to add in Polythene, Custom Bug and Woodnymph to the list as well.

After that I am searching for people in Continental Europe to get involved (France, Germany, etc) before I have it go on to Oman, South Africa and then to Aus.

Thanks so much to all for your enthusiasm!
Yay!

Posted:It goes until May.

We have I think 6 more in England, one in Germany, one in Oman and then on to Aus. Should be a month or so unless it picks up some.

smile

Getting things into the US by mail, even a postcard is still a pain in the arse however and takes twice as long as it used to.

Anyway..thanks again everyone!
