That is the purpose of this new group -- to unite unschooling families
from across the globe through tangible tokens of Joy delivered right
to the mailbox! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/unscho...roundtheworld/

We have unschoolers from New Zealand to South Africa, from Austria to
the US who are participating. Just add yourself to the database and
start sending postcards, as many and as often as *you* choose!

Yeah! I'm excited to find this. My boys enjoy looking at the map when I can tell them about someone they know in that state or country. The postcards will start up all sorts of conversations.
thanks!

We hope to unite unschooling families from across the globe through
tangible tokens of Joy delivered right to the mailbox!

We've had an influx of new members and would love to do some postcard
exchanges! Check in and see if you find kids with similar interests and connect with other unschoolers around the world! We have nearly 400 members to share postcards with.
