Question A great favor

I have been wondering and just now getting the courage to ask a great favor of anyone who's willing.

The Request... uh... wait for it... um... wait for it... (takes a deep breath) okay, here goes...

Postcards anyone? My daughter has been collecting stamps, purely on an amateur basis. Everytime we get the mail, she looks for stamps she doesn't have. (Of course most of our mail contains bills, junk or bulk mail without any actual postage stamps.) I thought it would be neat for her to get some stamps from around the world. And, the only group I know that is worldwide is the great people here at MR.

Then I thought it would be especially nice and educational (that's the homeschool mom in me) to receive them on a postcard that depicts your country or the area where you live (US residents are most welcome too!)

I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in doing this for me, for my daughter. Is this asking too much? Breaking any MR policies? I promise karma and grateful recognition for anyone who participates (if I know who it came from)! If anyone is interested, they could PM me for my mailing address, unless my address is available on my profile page somewhere?

BTW, her 11th birthday is exactly 1 month from today (6/18/09) on July 18th.

Anyway don't feel obligated (I won't give you negative karma, wait, we can't do that anyway ) She doesn't know anything about this, but I would be so appreciative and I know my daughter would be thrilled. Well, there you have it.

Thanks for taking the time to read my request and possibly even consider it!

I collect postcards, not stamps, but I'd love to send some to your daughter. Problem is that I'm in the USA and she's probably got lots of stamps from here.

I realize that she could get duplicates, but the postcards would be one-of-a-kind and the postmark would make it unique! We would be happy to reciprocate, sending you a postcard in return! I was already intending to send a "thank you" postcard.

I think your daughter is about to receive a lot of postcards from around the world.

Great idea, mom!

She will think it's so cool! I'm excited for her if it works out that way! She might not mind so much anymore if I'm on the computer, on MR, to be specific! She does like to look over my shoulder and always makes comments about the avatars and such! "What a cute dog! or I like that kitty! or What is that?!" Oh and she loved all of the psocks! Got a big kick out of that, even though she didn't "get it".

I have two boys, 5 and 3, who love mailing post cards. Why don't you send me your address in a message and I'll get the boys to send some post cards from Alberta Canada. We have some pretty plain stamps here but we also have some really neat ones as well.

PM me with name and address, and I send a postcard from Australia.

I'll be happy to send her one from boring old Virginia and if I get into DC anytime soon, I can send her one from there. Send me a PM with your address (we Illinoisians need to stick together).

By the way, 18th is my son Zack's 21st birthday!!
