Foodie Pen Pal: June
I can’t believe that another month has come and gone! I am apart of a program known as Foodie Pen Pals. It’s a blast. Want to know what it is?
-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.
If you’re interested in participating for June, pleaseCLICK 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! You will receive a confirmation email from me within 24 hours if you sign up. IF YOU DON’T GET ONE, send me an email!
*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I’ll see if we get enough interest this month!
This month I received a lovely box from Tara and was super stoked about it!
She should win some kind of award for wrapping each item so perfectly and putting up with my crazy food requests. She gets bonus points because I have bought the exact card she gave me for someone else!
Onto the items…I love how she gave me such a wide variety of things. She gave me a ton of different varieties of things so I could try them. So fun! She gave me: kale chips, a steak seasoning, some good snack options, a variety of teas, coconut water, salsa and hand-made soap! I have tried a few things and liked everything but unfortuantely have to wait until the end of my Whole30 to try the rest of it 🙂
Thank you again to Tara! If you are interested in doing it…you should. It’s so fun to send and recieve things in the mail 🙂
