"Learn the States" Postcard Swap - *ALMOST READY TO START!*



We've officially assigned half of the states to families, but I need your help with the other half!  Feel free to post something in your blog to try and recruit the last few states.  Or, do you have any family or friends that live in any of the following states that would like to join us?  Please send them along the information.

The states we still need are:
  • Delaware
  • New Hampshire
  • South Dakota
  • West Virginia

Has anyone else noticed that the Western/Southern states seem much more interested in this swap than the Northern states?  lol..  For awhile there, the only Northern states were my own family and Massachusetts.

I've also created the banner (above) and a button (below) that you can feel free to place in your blog/wherever else for more publicity:

I put a plug for the swap on my blog here. Can't wait to start getting postcards! Thanks for heading it all up. I know how time consuming and crazy it can be!

I like this idea a lot. I'm surprised you haven't had someone claim Illinois yet. I'd like to! :)

I'll email you.

We are very excited and looking forward to learning about all the states!

Thanks for all your work and we put a little mention about it, too!

I mentioned the postcard swap on my blog. I also put a link in my post and put your button on my sidebar. Thanks SO much for providing a code for the button. I'm sure this is a lot of work on your part, and I'm glad to be able to participate. :) You can see my post here: http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/ourcrewsship/759081/

Oh no! I saw Nebraska on your map and was going to volunteer, but it isn't in your list. If it is still available, we're game. :)
