What a week of reveals, eh?
That was very Canadian of me...
This month is my first participating in Foodie Penpals hosted by Lindsay@ The Lean Green Bean. Inspired by Send Something Good (formally known as Package Pals), I decided to hop on the snail mail train again! This time though, it's all about the food (and shit related to food). And while I thought Send Something Good had a lot of participants - over 160 - Foodie Penpals has over 800! Holy moly jack-a-doley!
Unfortunately for me and my first month, it seems I've been orphaned. I have yet to receive my box (haha...i haven't received my "box") - which is balls. Balls and box!
And I know it isn't exactly the done thing to post what I sent someone else, but I want to participate god damn it! So I will...
This month I was assigned Courtney Rae @ The Fig Tree. Her love of unprocessed, natural foods won me over immediately. And whence I got to her About Me page, I gave her my heart-soul. Kindreds, a bit.
I knew just what to send her. In fact, I themed it. Click here to see her actual post about what she's received from me.
The way Foodie PenPals works is simple: On the 5th of every month you are assigned a fellow blogger and his/her/their blog. You then have 72 hours to contact that person to find out their address, dietary restrictions, etc... By the 15th of the month you need to have your package to them in the mail. On the last day of the month, you post the reveal and link up @ The Lean Green Bean!
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!
This project is open to Canadian, US and UK bloggers as well as blog readers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you simply 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.
If you’re interested in participating for June, please click here to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!
