Post Cards for Emma Sage

Postcards for Emma Sage: Can you help my daughter collect a postcard from every state?

We have gotten cards from a few states & Countries [Thank you SO much!!!] but we are hoping to get all 50 states.

Emma Sage is fully included in her 2nd grade class and they are trying to get postcards from all the states [and other countries ~ The Philippines ~ Thank you Cheche!] as they are working on a geography lesson [and maps]. I would love for her to have a collection of all 50 states. Can you spread the word to family & friends who might like to help out.

The postcards should be sent to:

Emma Sage Hintz
212 Maple Lane
Califon, NJ 07830

The states we are missing are:

Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas Colorado Delaware Georgia Hawaii Idaho
Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland
Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Mississippi
Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New Jersey New York
North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma
Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Utah
Vermont Virginia West Virginia Wisconsin Wyoming

Thank you so very much!!!

She got an envelope today from Washington, D.C. [with a postcard in it from Washington State} from the House of Representatives!!!! Thank you Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers!!!!

How can she be missing a postcard from the state of MD when you have a daughter attending college there?! LOL I'll try to remember to pick her up a postcard from MD this week!

Hope you don't mind me reading your blog-can't quite remember how I came across it in the beginning. I'm from England, and work with adults with learning disabilities (therefore worked with various adults with Downs Syndrome).

I was wondering if Emma would like a postcard from England? Anything in particular that she likes?

I'm happy you already received our postcards, Ms. Emma. Those are just some of Philippine's treasures. :)

One from Scotland is heading off. I've also mentioned it on my latest blog post, so hopefully that might get you one or 2 extra ones :)

Melanie said...

Tears in my eyes! I found your blog through Ramblings of the Bearded One. I love this! I am in Utah, and I'll send one right over.

A Pennsylvania card is going out in the mail tomorrow!

I am a new looking-for-work teacher and read about your daughter's project on "Ramblings of the Bearded One". This sounds like a great project! You've got a postcard from Chicago, Illinois headed your way!

Katie said...

I'll send one(or several) from Massachusetts! I know I have some from the art museums around here as well as the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden(which is what I'll probably send).

debra said...

Ohio will be on it's way tomorrow :-)

Hopped on over from Ramblings of the Bearded One and guess what!? I live in South Dakota! and I'm going to Wally World today. I'll poke around and see if I can find something cute for your little girl.

Hi! came over via kim ayres. I'm from Savannah, Georgia, but I'm in the Napa-Somoma region of California. I'm sending off postcards to friends all over the world, so I'd love to send one to your little lovely! xoxo

debra said...

I have sent Emma Sage a card from my town. When my daughters were young, we also did a postcard project and marked all the locations on a map. I recently found the cards as i was going through some of our materials. Then I came across your blog (via Kim). Synchronicity!

Aoife said...

I saw this at Ramblings of The Bearded One.
I'll send a postcard from Ireland, and have asked my friends in Maine to send one from Maine as well.
Good luck in getting all fifty sates!

Are you still missing post cards? I'm from New Hampshire & will send one if you need it.

Came to your blog via bits-of-Betsy...she's my sister!
