Postcard project

Hi everyone, I was wondering if there were any cheffers willing to send a postcard from their town/city or state to my daughter.

She's in her final year (fourth year) of Pathfinders and it hasn't been too pleasant this year. Very disorganized leader who promises the moon and the stars and never follows through with anything. She waits too late to enroll the girls in different camps and events, is at least 10 minutes late to start every meeting and runs 15 minutes late after. Forgets to bring half of the supplies but doesn't want help when I volunteer. Spends half the meeting trying to get settled etc.

My dd has gone through 2 years Sparks, 2 years Brownies, 3 years Guides and then the 4 years of Pathfinders but is now turned off and doesn't want to carry on to the ranger program.

Tonight she came home broken hearted :( They had a project where they were matched up with a group from Norway and were to send a postcard from our small city to them along with a note about themselves. My daughter showed up at the meeting in February with 10 postcards which was a good thing because 5 of the other 8 girls forgot to bring theirs so of course she shared. Well I guess the leader took forever to mail them away and when she did she forgot to mail my daughter's! So the return ones arrive yesterday and it's then she realizes! This has been since February!

I felt soooo bad for her, especially when she said this is one of the only things she had been looking forward too but of course there's no way for me to get a postcard from Norway. I then had a lightbulb moment and thought...but I do 'know' people from places other than here - my fellow cheffers! :D

Would any of you be willing to help? I'd be happy to paypal for any costs incurred if necessary. Thanks for considering us. :)

Jodi, don't be so sure about not getting that postcard. Ask Noora if she can help.

Also, I'd be happy to send something from Virginia. PM me with your address.

I'll send one from the Finger Lakes area in NY. Send me your mailing address. Don't you hate when adults are so lackadasical about something our kids are soooo interested in. I know how it can break a parent's heart.

My sister in law lives in Cairo, Egypt. She is a teacher coming home in a few weeks.
I know she transfers planes in Europe, not sure where. Let me know if Egypt on another European country is ok. I would love to send a postcard to her from "The Big Apple"
Let us know!

While I'm not sure about Norway, I can certainly do Finland! And maybe Sweden.

If you're OK with it, I can even post it on my FB wall (which is private). Just PM me with your address. :D

Florida is on the way, too! If you need to know, the postage from USA to Canada for a postcard is 75 cents according to USPS.com.​

I'll send one from Pennsylvania, just let me know


Hello again everyone! I just wanted to update all my wonderful cheffer friends that have been so kind to help me out...Thursday we received one from Lori G in Pennsylvania (thanks Lori :D) and Friday we received one from Leslie in Florida (thank you Leslie :D).

The third and final one we received on Friday was from a woman in Finland! Noora K was kind enough to post on her facebook wall and this wonderful woman sent us one :) How shocked were we to receive one from there and so quickly too!

Again, a great big thank you to all of you! :)

That's my mom. :) She is pretty wonderful. She's actually in California now, and will be coming to visit us next in July. I'm glad it came so fast. Now I'm quite embarrassed that I haven't had a chance to get mine in the mail. :blushing:

I'm embarrassed too. I did go looking for some last weekend, but didn't find any! Then, with the rush of saying good-bye to my Mom as she went back to California, and waiting for my son to return from California, I plain forgot!

Thanks for the reminder, Jodi! I'll see what I can do this week.

Sorry, I'm just now seeing this. I can also send one from Japan. I have friends in Spain, South Africa, Australia and Germany - I can ask & see if they would be willing to play as well. ;)

ETA: Oh, and a friend in New Zealand ...

When I was a kid I would have been SOOOO excited by all of this. It can be a great way to get them thinking about (geography) in a fun way--just don't use the "g word" and even to start thinking about how did those people get to those places? How can I as a kid start thinking about ways to be able to travel when I am an adult?

Heck, I'm not even getting the postcards and I'm excited.

First she was excited because she had mail..never gets any. Then confused when she read them saying who are these people? Then VERY excited when she realized they were from different places lol and then I got a great big hug and kiss when I told her how it all came about. That's a HUGE deal since she never hugs me anymore...age thing :(

Then she said my 'cheffer friends were awesome' and please thank them so very much for me mom :D

I'm sorry I got interrupted while posting earlier. She also got yours today too Marghi :) Thank you so much! She just headed to bed but before doing so said to me 'Mom, I can't believe all these ladies are so nice and would send me a postcard without even knowing me. Can you please, please tell them thank you?' I told her of course I would and that people in general are very nice but especially all my cheffer friend :D

So with Allison's from Iowa, and Marghi's from Arizona we've received 5 postcards from our cheffer friends. Thanks everyone! :)
