A Bloggy favor for my little Madison!


Okay so I have a big favor for all of you. And I'm begging if I have to!


Yesterday Madison came home from school with a paper telling us that the 1st graders are doing a project this year to help them learn about maps. We are supposed to ask anyone we know who lives anywhere else to send in a postcard from where they live.

So I decided that since Madison is one of the 3 new kids in this little tiny school this year I wanted to make sure they knew just how special she is and how many people know about my little firecracker! I think it would be really fun for Madison to have the most postcards, don't you? So I'm asking you all a favor, I'd do it for you I promise! Will you send a postcard to my Madison?

It's really easy and I'll even post the schools address on here in case anyone wants to pass this message along. It needs to have Madison Dunn on it like this

Madison Dunn c/o
Pt Higgin's First Grade
981 N Point Higgins Rd.
Ketchikan, AK 99901
If you do send one I'd love for you to leave me a note to let me know so I can kinda keep track for us here but you don't have to.

35 people had something to say:

Wow, I haven't had a chance to read blogs for a while, and I've really missed out on a lot happening in your life! Now I have to catch up.

Beccy said...

Consider it done Terri.

I've lurked around for a while now but coming out of the lurksville to let you know I'll make it my mission to make her the post-cardiest 1st grader around! At least she can count one from good ol' Puyallup, WA into her goodness!

That Chick Over There said...

I will try very very hard to do this. :)

Karmyn R said...

I will find a postcard and get to it! (such an easy thing - I don't think there will be any begging necessary)

frannie said...

frannie said...

Reposting. I decided instead of using fake names I'll just send one from each member of my family! So it kinda looks like coming rom 4 different people! WOOT!

She's getting 4 from my area because dangit they were 4/$1! Good ol' Tacoma, Mt St Helens, Mt Rainier, and Snoqualmie Falls. (I also posted this on my blog. I've no doubt the word will get out and she will rock the 1st grade something hard)

Neat idea, sure I'll send a postcard as soon as I can find one. :)

Steffi said...

Of course,nice idea and I will send a postcard too.

Very nice pictures again,especially the one of Maddie!

la bellina mammina said...

Definitely - I'll send her a couple:-)

Anonymous said...

Good luck! :)

I did just want to say that it might not be such a great idea to post a picture of your daughter, her first and last name, the address of her school, and a picture of it. Any nutjob could use that information to a nefarious end. I appreciate what you're trying to accomplish, but it might not be the smartest way to go about it.

Terri I'll get one showing Bristol tomorrow and post it. I so want Madison to get the most post cards. It would be brilliant for her.

Emma in Canada said...

For sure I'll do this. I'll link to it from my blog too, though I think for the most part we have the same readers.

Steffi said...

Our letter with the postcards are already on the way to Maddie ;O)!

Anonymous said...

One coming from Colorado :)

HeiressChild said...

hi terri, i sent you an email asking is there a specific kind of postcard to send, or just send a postcard. i have some here, but didn't know if you needed a specific one.

Kaytabug said...

OK I am sending 2 and I will send them from 2 different states...one from each state! How cool is that?!

Melanie said...

I'll send one tomorrow!

Lisa said...

As soon as I get one, she'll get one from Connecticut!

Amy W said...

I will mail one from Myrtle Beach I have sitting at my house...I hope she gets the most!!

Beckie said...

Oh yeah, I'm in on this. I will go get a postcard today so I can mail it!!

CPA Mom said...

Here from Emma...I'll be happy to send you a card...but I agree with Anonymous above. It frightens me that you have your daughter's full name, picture and school up here. Can you change it to (email me if you want to mail her a card)?

Michelle said...

Hi --

First time poster, here.

I didn't have a postcard, so I sent a little card in an envelope.
Hope that helps! Good luck, Maddie!

Judy Thomas said...

What a great idea. I'll definitely drop something in the mail :-) I hope she blows everyone's socks off!

btw, Emma sent me :-)

Kila said...

We'll send her one from Wisconsin :)

Melenie said...

We have a few on the way as well...hope everyone is doing good :)

Thinking of you,

Melenie

She will have one coming from Indianapolis very soon.

karisma said...

We'll be sending a couple from Australia. We are off on holidays next week so will send one from there as well. Good Luck Sweetie!

Heather K said...

Hi Terri..I'll send one if I'm not too late already....? She looks pretty happy with first grade!! I like your video of Joshua trumpeting! He's a real little cutie!
We're finally getting onto testing with Janelle. They call it psycho/educational testing. I don't like the sound of the name they give the testing but it's a good thing.. I'm really hoping that this will help Janelle out. She can't seem to concentrate more than a minute or two without being distracted. I don't think her teacher from last year helped her out though. She was rather negative in her approach. She humiliated her in the class and tried to motivate her that way... as we all know(or so I thought) that does NOT work. Anyway... her new teacher is right out of University..just did her practicum and has her first classroom. I'm really hoping that she is going to be able to work with Janelle and help her to succeed!
anyway..it sounds like you guys are settling in nicely :)
take care
Heather

lisa's chaos said...

I found a postcard I think your daughter will like, I hope it's not too late to send it. I'll send it tomorrow. :)

mindillusion said...

Blue Momma said...

We are headed out shortly and I'll pick up a post card and get it in the mail tomorrow!

I meant to do this a while back, but as always, I'm late.
