I have a huge favor to ask you, my readers, followers, fans… I need you to send a postcard of a ginger person sighting to my niece’s school.
My niece, “Mayonaise”‘s class has started a lesson about the world… The gingerbread “man” has run away and the class is going to track his where-a-bouts via these postcards. Her teacher has requested that friends and family get involved and mail picture postcards sharing their “sightings” of the gingerbread man. They are going to track the gingerbread man’s travels on a map to see where he/she has been.
In addition, the kids with the most postcards (more than 3) from around the world will get to be a part of a big gingerbread activity… None of the kids or parents know what it is yet… maybe they will get to build a life-sized gingerbread house (remember they are 5 years old). No matter what it is, it’s a fun, innocent way to learn about the world and make and eat cookies!!
So, please send a postcard with your ginger person sighting to the following address:
Abby May “Mayonaise”
C/O Mrs. Aggards AM Kindergarten Class
Nebo View Elementary
380 East. 200 North
Nephi, Utah 84648
Stating something to this effect:
“Dear Abby M.
I was on my way to work in my car this morning and you will never believe what I saw! I looked over, and a gingerbread woman was driving the car next to me! I was shocked, I didn’t think gingerbread people existed! When I saw her, she looked back at me, and she blew me a kiss! What a treat! I’ve been smiling all day, and I hope this sighting will make you smile too.”
If you just can’t come up with something clever, a few samples can be found here, here, and here.
She needs as many postcards as possible, from as many different places around the world. I’m going to send emails to my friends requesting their assistance, but thought all of you would want to help too!
Postcards must be received by Dec. 1st so the sooner you can send one the better! Only one can be received from each person/address … otherwise I’d send her a bunch myself!!
Thanks everyone for your support!!
