We just came across this request - if you have not yet seen it, would be great if we can all help with this fantastic project:

I have a favor to ask

It's hard to believe but my Christmas vacation is almost over. There are only 100 more days of school until summer vacation. Every year I hit up my friends and family for postcards of their hometowns and/or vacation spots. We use them in class to learn about other areas and compare them to where we live. Our goal is to try and collect 100 postcards by the 100th day of school. Well, our 100th day is fast approaching and we still don't have 100 postcards.

I don't teach at an inner city school, but it is a city school and the kids in my kindergarten class don't get to travel much. These glimpses into other places have opened up a whole new world for them and they are planning the spots they would like to visit someday. So, if you would be willing to send us a postcard from your town or state or vacation spot I would greatly appreciate it. Our 100th day is on January 31st. It won't be a problem if your postcard arrives after that because we'll still be collecting postcards for the rest of the year.

Here's the address if you can help:

Ms. Brown's Class
Greynolds Park Elementary
1536 N.E. 179th Street
North Miami Beach, FL 33162

Hi Shrek (or we should say Shrek Plus)... our bean has not been able to do much visiting lately, sorry we've not been by to say hello. Hope all is well with you, we send wishes (a bit late) for a wonderful New Year for one & all.
We are curious: have ANY of you maintained those "resolutions" below??? Ours barely lasted through the first day of the new year! Our bean send wishes also, and says all the pictures here are great... specially "mesmerizing eyes". Take care, hope we can get back by your place soon... (oh, and the bean is checking out The Elders, awesome!) Thanks!

We'll have Mom send one! We loved getting Christmas cards, so we think the kids would love getting the postcards!

To all who have sent postcards - thanks. Our beans sent one too here from Cape Town and we hope the kids get it.

Thank you so much for posting this on your blog! You are an awesome cat! We've been getting postcards from all over the world and the kids are so excited. Your postcard arrived yesterday and we agree with you---South Africa is a beautiful place!
