For our postcards, we took some of the pictures of our activities and printed them on cardstock, making our own postcards. Some of the troops that sent us cards did similar things and I actually thought they were more interesting than the regular postcards, more personal.

Keep Sparking!

We did this one year as well. It was a lot of fun but hard to get all the responses back. We had about 15 groups of the 60 we connected (the 50 states and 10 internationls) that we never got postcards from but we sent all of ours out. The most challenging for us was finding postcards for our city (a suburb of Seattle) and then again getting those postcards back! But we did make a wonderful display board for them at the SU Thinking Day event and people were very impressed!

But now that my girls are 9th graders. . They don't seem to worry too much about this kind of thing. They always host Thinking Day (the last 4 years) so they make magnificent boards of usually 2 to 4 little known countries and then get at least 10 other troops to sponsor booths. It's always fun!

Go Team Golden Phoenix!

The year I did it I was kinda overwhelmed, but I wouldn't mind doing a little, informal one.

I sent the info to my Service Unit and told them they should consider doing it.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Probably won't be doing it either, but it was loads of fun when we did take part.

We don't have the power to make rainbows or waterfalls, sunsets or roses but we do carry within us the power to make the world a better place.

No we aren't, but we've done it a couple times and it's always fun.
