Remember a few weeks ago when I talked about Foodie Penpals? Well, if you don’t here’s a little refresher: Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean started this pretty awesome pen pal project. She assigns everyone to a person, then you send that person a package filled with food goodies!
I was excited to send mine off and even more excited to receive my package!
Soon my package from Amy over at Healthy, Hungry, and Happy arrived!
Loved all that Amy sent! And I can’t wait for next month’s package!
Hey, would you like a package of your own? Join the Foodie Penpals then! In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-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. *US Residents only please at this time- hopefully we can expand soon!*
If you’re interested in participating for January, please send an email to Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
-Your full name
-Your email address
-Your blog name/address
-Your twitter handle (if applicable)
I will need to hear from you by January 4th as pairings will be emailed on January 5th!
So, hit up Lindsay and she’ll hook you up! (wow…that was ridiculous…lol)
