Small Request

Hi Ladies! I have a little request. My daughter who is in grade 1 has made a flat paper person of herself with a photo of herself as the face. The teacher is calling this "The flat Stanley world tour" The idea is to have 5 people to send her"paper-self" too, that live in other parts of the world/country than we do, so its like she gets to "virtually"travel around the world! I think its the cutest idea. Her teacher has asked that we have 5 addresses by friday of friends/family that would be willing to recieve "her" in the mail & take it along with you a couple times while your out & take a few pictures,paste it in her book(even if the pictures printed out on the computer) or whatever, and mailed to the next address on the list. Would any of you guys be willing to recieve my baby in the mail & pass it along?
****UPDATE- Thanks you guys are so amazing!!!!! I have more than enough names, you are all SO greatly generous & appreciated. Thank you all for reading & your offers from the bottom of my heart!!!

Hi Angie,
we'd be more than happy to play host here in the UK. If you email me via my blog with what you need from me that would be great.

I would be happy to help! We recently did this same sort of thing for a nephew in Texas and we had a lot of fun with it! If your daughter would like "herself" to travel to Louisville, Kentucky and see historic Churchill Downs and the Ohio River (just to name a few), let me know! You can email me at dlord@pinehurstpropertiesllp.com

Hi - I'm in Scotland and would be happy to help. We could take flat stanley along to Brownies where I'm sure my girls would love to have pics taken. I have a cute kitten she might like to meet and a ten year old daughter could take her for a bounce on the trampoline! E-mail me for my address.

My 6 yr old daughter loves it when "flat stanleys" come our way. My yahoo email is juliekosokuo if you're interested in checking out a bit of Taiwan. You could even send it to my dad's in Canada, and we'd take her back to Taiwan with us, so you'd get two locations in one ;)

sounds like a fun project. I see you have enough adresses allready, but if Stanley wants to go to Norway, I'm here. I teach grade 1 this year.

Oh I'm sorry I missed this, I'm sure flat Stanley would have loved New Zealand.

Oh how sad, we have missed out. It's summer holidays in Australia, we are sure Stanley would have loved the beach. Lucy

Just thought I would let you guys know that you "flat stanley" package arrived in Comer - Georgia late yesterday - the 25th of February.

Endured severe thunderstorms this morning as they rumbled across the area.

We will be working in my studio tonight - and then to church tomorrow night. We will visit some things over the weekend and next week.

Oops - I forgot - she will get to go on a college campus visit with Miss Molly on Thursday then to a soccer game with Abby.

Thanks for including us.
