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!

I have a letter from Armenia today that I could steam the stamps off and create something for you.

Armenia is pretty cool grin

Do you just want something with a stamp on like a postcard or would you prefer a letter? Just trying to work out what's easier for my mum!

Squirted, maybe it would be best if I came with you to the Bahamas grin

Cosmosis - I'm in Yorkshire too. Only bog standard stamps!

And thank you - writing to the British Embassies is a brilliant idea.

Aw this is lovely! Hope your lovely boy enjoys all his new stamps, AllYouNeed smile

Just when I'm feeling jaded with MN and I find a thread like this..... grin

MrsHels - I think he'll be amazed and stunned to get anything at all smile
He's never been sent a letter before. I imagine he'll be overwhelmed, bless him grin

I'm in uk too but how abut posting on the Living Overseas board here? Am sure the lovely MNers who hang out there would help and they live all over!

Your boy sounds fab.

I am in the UK too but may have some overseas stamps - I used to collect them (when I was mini-rogue) and may well have some. Late FIL used to collect UK stamps but will check his collection too. Will PM you if I strike lucky.

Btw, don't think I have seen something that cute for ages. He sounds lovely. grin.

I'm in Switzerland. If you pm me his name and your address I'm sure I can find an obliging Milka cow who can write a postcard smile

BellaOfTheBalls Tue 12-Jun-12 21:12:01

I'm in the UK but that is the most adorable thing. And all of those saying they'll help out. Thank you for restoring my faith in MN-ers and the world in general grin

Please will you let me send you my old stamp collection? My mum brought it over when she had a clear-out a few years ago and I have no idea what to do with it! I doubt there's anything valuable in it but I used to spend hours on it when I was 8 or so. I've never used the PM thing before but will look out for one from you - let me know your address.

I'm in scotland so can't help but that is so gorgeous!! smile

AllYouNeedIsAClickyBallpoint Tue 12-Jun-12 21:13:49

Thank you all of you!
And yes, he is fab! Lots of character smile

PissyDust Tue 12-Jun-12 21:14:43

As an Essex gal I can't help but if you re-post on the overseas board can you add a link here. I love reading helpful posts grin

Horsemad Tue 12-Jun-12 21:15:43

Can't help sorry as am in England but this thread has got me all choked!

Bless him, that is soooo cute smile

MammaTJ Tue 12-Jun-12 21:15:56

That is so lovely!! Can't help. I am a new MNetter but have become very addicted very quickly. This is my fave so far!!

I'm in the US and would be happy to send him fun stamps. I just logged on to the US postal service website and they've just issued some Pixar stamps which might be fun.

PM me if you'd like.

showtunesgirl Tue 12-Jun-12 21:17:15

Awwww. Super, super cute!

AllYouNeedIsAClickyBallpoint Tue 12-Jun-12 21:18:55

Foureyes - that's incredibly generous of you!
I don't want to take something that you might regret one day.
I'll pm you, but I won't be offended if you decide it's too much smile

iceandsliceplease Tue 12-Jun-12 21:22:46

We're going to Spain next week, I can send something from there if you like?

If there are any countries not yet covered, let me know - owing to my 10 years in a weird job, I have friends in lots of different countries grin

FourEyesGood Tue 12-Jun-12 21:23:18

Seriously, I don't want these stamps and would love them to go to someone who'll appreciate them. Hurrah for mumsnet!

iceandsliceplease Tue 12-Jun-12 21:23:26

Gah, meant to say, any countries on his letters not yet covered...

AllYouNeedIsAClickyBallpoint Tue 12-Jun-12 21:26:26

Ice - if you know anyone in Jamaica that would be brill!
Ds thinks if he sends a letter addressed to Jamaica, it will be delivered straight to Usain Bolt's hands grin

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Tue 12-Jun-12 21:27:15

This is why I bloody LOVE mumsnet! grin
