This swap is for anyone in college, as well as alumni and other fans. The idea is actually to send a college care package, but if you are an alumni or something, we'll make arrangements for that too.
Ideas for stuff to send:
jewelry, knit or crocheted items, or sewn items in uni colors or with uni logo
bath and body products
school supplies (book covers, decorated folders or pencil boxes, journals, bags)
delicious homeade goodies
and MUCH, MUCH MORE!
Remember you can always check out commercial care packages for ideas.
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Your real name
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
1. What's your uni name/mascot/colors? (Post pictures if you'd like so your swapper can see the right colors, etc.)
2. Are you a undergrad? (If, so what year? Frosh, Soph, Jun'r, Sen'r) or Are you a grad student or alumni? Or fan?
3. What subjects are you taking/majoring/interested in? Sports, clubs, etc?
4. Do you live in a dorm?
5. Anything specific that you are hoping to get?
6. What crafts are you likely to do? (Do you knit, crochet, embroider, sew, paper-craft, etc?)
Really, if you'd like to write a little paragraph about your situation (basically answering these questions and adding any other relevant information), then I can just send that on to your swapper.
A sample paragraph might be something like:
"I'm a freshman at Texas A&M. Whoop! Our mascot is the Aggies and our colors are maroon and white. I'm majoring in engineering but am really more interested in FOOTBALL!! I plan to go to every game. I'd love to get an A&M scarf to keep me warm at the winter games. I'll be living in the dorms and taking English, Calculus, Chemistry, and History. I'll really miss my best friend; we've known each other since kindergarten, but now she's going to a different school. Gig 'em!
For my swapper, I plan to make some bath products and probably some jewelry."
Don't worry about going into detail about what you plan to make. But I can use that information to put people together with swappers who make the kind of items the particularly want, if possible.
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
