Well, it is that time of month again to reveal the Foodie Pen Pal package I received this past month. Normally, I am super excited about posting…however, this package was very different from what I normally receive!!
Again, this is not typical of what I have received in the past. I hate to be a Negative Nancy, but I was a little disappointed with this package. Oh well, I guess I will be drinking a lot more tea over the next few weeks.
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 pen pal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your pen pal 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 Pen pals 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 pen pal 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 Pen pals 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 Tuesday, November 4th.
Have a healthy day!
