Card Shower for DK37

Postby Phuong » Mon Dec 26, 2016 12:09 pm

Hey CTalk peeps! It's been a couple of years since we've done this, but I'd like to set up a card shower for DK37 to help him ring in the new year. The goal is to have at least one card from each state, with any international being a bonus. If you are interested, rules are simple. PM me and I will send you the address. You will then mail a card (you can even tap into your creative side and make one) within the next day or two. Make sure you have the proper postage because you will only put your name, city and state on the envelope. We want him to receive these cards, but not to be tempted to respond to all of them! So please PM me if you want to join the fun and let me know what state you will be representing.

International represented:
Scotland
Russia
Argentina
Canada
China
Amsterdam

We still need:
Alabama
Alaska
Arkansas
Colorado
Connecticut
Idaho
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Maine
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nevada
New Hampshire
New Jersey
New Mexico
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota
Vermont
West Virginia
Wyoming
