Christmas Postcard Pay it Forward

US Map

Again since I am not posting anything new this week, I am bringing the Postcard Pay it Forward back up to the top. There is still time to get involved! Those who have already signed up and sent me your information need not sign up again!


After some thought, and some wonderful insight from Natalie at Mouse Grows Mouse Learns I decided it might be best if instead of a carnival we do a Pay it Forward Postcard exchange. This will be a great way to share a little Geography lesson and share some Christmas Cheer to our friends here on the Internet. The Postcards will be ones that have Geography type pictures and information about where you live. Let’s make this more then just a Christmas exchange, but a Geography lesson as well.

As for Selena and I we are opening this up to send out as many postcards to those who would like to send us one.

So for the rules, Sign up here to receive a postcard from Selena and I, I only ask that you send us one in return.

To get the Pay it Forward going figure out how many people you would like to share postcards with, I think 3 to 5 are not too much to ask. The main rule is to keep the Pay it Forward going. If you sign up to receive a postcard from Selena and I, then you must do a pay it forward on your site to exchange postcards with at least three other people, you may do more, that is up to you.

Ok, I have two from my previous post, so you two do not need to comment again unless you want to. Anyone and everyone who leaves me a comment  will be in my postcard exchange. You then must Pay it Forward by posting about this event, and agree to send postcards to at least the first 3 or like us to whoever comments on your post. They then must agree to do the same thing.

I hope this makes sense, it is just like the Pay it Forward we did with the little packages, just this will be a postcard exchange. I think in order for it to really be an exchange though we should be willing to actually exchange postcards, in other words, if I send one to you I think out of respect you should send one to me, then post for the Pay it Forward.

If you have any questions just email me through the email in my profile.

Start leaving your comments so we can share information and start exchanging postcards! Just make sure  you either leave your email address in your comment or email it to me, if you have your settings at your blog set to noreply.

Thank you and have FUN! Let’s see how many postcards our little ones can receive and how much they can learn about the United States!

I would appreciate a link back to my blog, the more States I can get postcards from will make Selena and my Geography lesson a better experience. Thank you!

  3. Thanks Debbie for getting back to me about the postcard exchange. We can't wait to do this!

    Would you mind letting me know the name of the program that Selena uses to play Purple Palace on your laptop. She looks like she is really into this game and it sounds like something my little girl would also enjoy.
