Well I'm in whatever way you decide to set it up. I think I'll adopt though, it's always such a thrill to get post when you first move away Cheesy

I hope we get some people who want to adopt some college students!  Don't forget that even if you are a college student, you can always send a care package out as well!
I wouldn't mind doing so...but I can't join in any swaps yet (yes, this is partly also the reason of my suggesting making this an ongoing thing instead of a timed one Wink)

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I went to college half way across the country in a city where I had no family and knew no one. The first care package I got from my great gramma's little old quilting lady circle had me crying with happiness for hours.  I know how much care packages mean.

I will repay the good karma and adopt. Smiley

- ms e, who is finally in her last year of graduate school. and sadly, is considered grown up enough to not need care packages anymore, lol...

Sorry, guys...I have been hanging out with my boyfriend all day.  I am changing it to an on-going swap now.  You will have until...whenever (until people loose interest) to sign up.  So I will post the list of people waiting to recieve care packages, and when people come along this thread, they can choose someone to send to, and then the person's name who has been "adopted", so to speak, will be taken off the list.

Sound good?

Alright, guys...I have re-posted this swap as an on-going swap.  Please re-read the new rules, even if you have already PMed me your information.  Also, please don't forget that even if you are a college student, you can always send care packages as well!
