I'm so excited, I signed up to participate in Foodie Penpals this month. Foodie Penpals is a program hosted by Lindsay over at the Lean Green Bean.
Basically what happens is when you sign up, you will receive someone to send a package to and someone else will receive your name to send you a package. The assignments go out on the 5th of each month and you have 3 days to connect with the person you are sending a package to.
You want to find out their mailing address and any food likes, dislikes, allergies, dietary restrictions, etc. so that you can put together a package with a variety of items. Local foods, home made goodies, etc. Your spending limit is $15 and you have to send your package by the 15th of the month.
On the last day of the month everyone writes a post about what they received and then links it up to Lindsay's Linky Party.
This month, she had over 1300 people participating!!
I've already received my assignment for this month and sent off an email to find out what I should start putting in her package.
Check back August 31st to see what I sent her and what I received from my penpal.
