I am finally back on track with Foodie Pen Pals. In May I forgot to sign up in time so I had to wait till June. Then for some reason, the girl I was paired up with in June never said she received my package (although the tracking info said it was received), and I never received the package that she said she sent!
Then when I signed up for July there was a fluke and it did not register me!! Ahhh
Thankfully Lindsay (the founder of the FPP program) came to the rescue and was able to set me up with a WONDERFUL FPP who also had some technical glitches!
Maggie was fabulous from the start with emailing me and asking about what I can/can’t eat, and the things I like and dislike! And she sent out my package so quickly! It was really great and I ended up having the perfect snacks for my recent trip up north!
Sweet little note!
Maggie, you did AMAZING! Thank you SO much for getting me fantastic snack treats! You rocked it!!
If you want to get involved with the Foodie Pen Pals here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
– Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
***If you’re in Europe, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
If you would like to be a part of this amazing program you can sign up HERE by Monday, August 4th.
Have a healthy day!
