This is a collaborated swap between myself and Susieq11 :) The info comes from a New Jersey facebook page found here: http://www.facebook.com/about.new.jersey
This is a very special swap for someone who lost a lot in hurricane Sandy. We may not be able to replace things a person has lost in such cases of devastation but we can reach out and do a small thing with a big impact. This lady has lost so much including her massive postcard collection from all over the world. Here is her story:
Can you help a friend of a friend out who lives in Brant Beach? One of the things that she lost, which can never truly be replaced but had a lot of meaning to her, was her extensive postcard collection from all over the world. Here is her message...
For all of you who have asked me: "what can I do?" I finally thought of something! It may seem silly in the face of so much devastation and believe me, I count my blessings over and over.
One of the things I lost was an extensive collection of postcards sent to me over a lifetime from every continent (including Antarctica!) maybe no monetary value, but they were written with love, some by people who have passed on that I will never hear from again. In the spirit of starting over and rebuilding, I ask that you send me a postcard (please no virtual ones, I'm talking with a stamp and postmark) my address is
4603 Long Beach Blvd,
Brant Beach, NJ 08008.
Eventually there will be postal service again and I will receive it. Thank you!
Lets flood Laura's mailbox with postcards!! So for this swap you will send one postcard to your partner and one to Laura.
Since it is not possible to track and know for sure that all swappers send BOTH postcards out, only trustworthy swappers with great ratings will be allowed to take part in this swap. NO FLAKERS! NO recent ones or threes.
EDIT: It has been decided to allow unrated swappers on a case by case basis. Please join only if you know you are going to commit to sending to both your partner and Laura. Also, on the cards sent to Laura, could we please put something to indicate where the card is from ie: "swap bot swap: Postcards for Laura" or something as such.. thank you!
Please check your partners profile to see what they would like.. postcards may be sent either naked and written on or blank and in an envie to your partner (their preference), but lets send the ones to Laura naked and written on please! :)
