USA State Postcard Swap... Disappointment

If you have been around my blog awhile you may remember we (My daughter and I) were participating in a 50 state postcard swap. Well, it is long over with and I am very disappointed to say that out of the 49 other families that were supposed to send us postcards, 19 of them completely flaked out... Which means our collection of postcards is incomplete.

This is how it was supposed to work, it began in May of 2010. Each week one State (family) was scheduled to send out cards from their state to the other 49 states. So we should have (in theory) received one a week for 50 weeks, excluding the week we sent out cards.

I totally understand that Family Life happens, so delays in some getting sent out are inevitable. But the swap ended in April, we are still lacking so many cards and the families that were supposed to send them have long ago stopped communicating with the swap participants...

I need your help!!! If any of you are able to send us a postcard from any of the following states (I don't care if you live there or not), I will gladly send you one back from Hawaii!

Iowa
Kentucky
Maine
Nebraska
New Mexico
North Carolina
Ohio
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Tennessee
Texas
Washington
West Virginia

A huge thanks to those who have helped us cross these states off the list:
Georgia
Missouri
New Jersey
Oregon
Utah
Wisconsin


Click the Email tab above if your interested. I will update this list as I get more cards.
Thank you in advance if you are able to help!
