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 live in Canada if that helps (PM me).

That is completely gorgeous, I wish I could help. You could always try the Tourist Boards for those countries if you get no replies on here. But you will because MN is fab at this stuff! X

Sorry can't help but HOW CUTE?

I could send a Scottish one

Aaawww that's very sweet, I'm in England too, so a stamp from me would be boring, but hope you get lots of overseas MNers to help. smile

I'm in Hungary - PM me.

I would post this again, but ask for specific help from overseas mnetters in the title, I don't want him to be disappointed!

MrsTerryPratchett Tue 12-Jun-12 19:49:37

You could ask MNHQ to change the title of the thread for you... "Calling all overseas MNers" or something.

I will be visiting Latvia in the first week of the summer holidays. Send me a pm and a reminder nearer the time and I'll send a postcard smile

How sweet is that?!? I sponser a child in Malawi if you PM your name and address I'll sent the stamp next time I get a letter.

Unless I have one kicking about it could be a couple of months though.

You are all amazing!
Thank you grin

Are Scottish stamps different to Royal mail ones? <ignorant>

PM me as DH is in the Falklands until July 11th, so you'll have to be quick. And IL's live in Lanzarote with SIX YEAR OLD NEPHEW. Would he like a penpal?!?!?!

Aww, how nice of him!!!!

We are off to the Middle East at the end of August so if you PM I'll get my 6 year old ( will be 7 by the time the letter is sent) to send him a letter.

Ahh. I could do Ukraine and Ireland for sure.

I have friends in many different countries so PM if I can help.

(I have a 4YO who is obsessed with trains!)


MrsHelsBels74 Tue 12-Jun-12 20:24:56

My mum lives in France & I'm sure she'd do it. I also have friends in New Zealand who I could ask. PM me if I (they) can help.

AllYouNeedIsAClickyBallpoint Tue 12-Jun-12 20:25:11

He would love a penpal!

Can I apologise if anyone has got more than one message. I lost track of who I PMed blush

ruelachesty Tue 12-Jun-12 20:25:49

I could ask my friend in New Zealand. Also have friends in Aus but they would be less reliable!

CRbear Tue 12-Jun-12 20:31:24

I live in Norway and would be happy to help! PM me

robino Tue 12-Jun-12 20:32:11

I can do Qatar for you if you'd like. Once I've managed to get to a post office.

ruelachesty Tue 12-Jun-12 20:32:23

Also my sis is going to Dominican Republic in a few weeks if that helps too. Scottish stamps just the same as royal mail I'm afraid! Pm if needed

ForFoxsGlacierMints Tue 12-Jun-12 20:37:46

I could ask my sister to send one from America?

ElephantsCanRemember Tue 12-Jun-12 20:39:20

I can ask my sister to send one from Australia?

I'm going to the Bahamas soon. PM me and I'll send a postcard.

Dh has suggested sending some to the British embassy in some countries too? I wish we could help but live in Yorkshire and while independence would be great we don't have our own stamps yet grin
