Calling all overseas MNers - My lovely boy has written some letters

He's 7, and is quite taken by stamps.
He's written several letters (I'll give you an example in a minute), and I wondered if there might be some MNers in foreign parts who might help him smile

Here is one of his letters ( in very best joined-up writingsmile)

Dear Jamaica

If I writ you a letter, please will you send me one back, so I can see your stamps.
I am from England (Great Britan)
Good luck in the Olympics
Love from Allyouneed Junior.

There are similar letters for several countries, and his plan is to put them in an envelope with the country name on the outside, and several stamps.

Would anyone be able to send him a letter with a stamp on?
Thank you. He would be the happiest boy in the world!

Have also liked - is that my postcard on the right there? You need to photo all the stamps and add the photos so that we can all see (small project, should only take you a couple of days or so grin )

It could be Biking grin
I've lost track of everything and everyone at the moment!

Update today -

Lovely letter from Moldova - lovely greyhound stamp smile
Parcel from Denmark, with some Danish sweets in (they didn't last long grin)
Parcel from the British Virgin Islands, with postcards and beautiful stamps inside, and some gorgeous shells smile

Thank you all of you thanks

I should get a chance to take photos tomorrow and update the sad, empty FB page!

I've skim read the thread and haven't seen much mention of Spain. I'll be there trying to escape the rain in 3 weeks time, so PM me if you need one from there.

if you're still doing this do you want a letter from Malta?

ScatterChasse Fri 21-Sep-12 23:51:22

Oh, I remember this thread smile

If you're still interested I have a Turkish stamp, don't think I've seen that mentioned. It would be sent from Scotland though...PM me if you do smile.

If you are still looking for letters from abroad (and haven't had one yet) I have family in the Falklands who I know would love to send your son a letter. PM if you would like me to contact them.
