Back for another edition of Foodie Penpal. This month I had the pleasure of sending some gifts to Danielle who writes over at Foodosauras Rex. I was also lucky enough to be paired with Beatriz of Collections of Thoughts (a non-food blog that includes her musings on life). I received the perfect package from her containing mostly healthy food, all of which satisfied my sweet tooth. Beatriz sent me some delicious applesauce, dried apricots, vanilla granola (which was to die for), yogurt covered pretzels, and crispy chocolate chip cookies. I think I managed to snag just one of those tasty cookies before my husband confiscated the package and devoured the rest. Thanks so much for the wonderful treats and rockin' card!
In case you are interested in participating in Foodie Penpals, Lindsay is always accepting new participants. Here are some details on how the program works, your responsibilities, and how to sign up.
-On the 5th of every 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 are 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 Penplas is open to US & Canadian 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!
