Sorry to stick another post in - I didn't think the above one worked! So, here I am! Again.

Merri-Kim, thank-you SO much. Now, if I had six bags of Smarties sitting there just waiting, well, I know exactly where they'd be going, and I'm sorry jawar, I don't think all six bags would make it to your place! LOL!
Thanks so much. I am so pleased this one connection finally got worked out - Merri-Kim not on your part, but finally jawar won't be disappointed for a third time!
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

It has been brought to my attention that I should probably clarify the Smarties sending, especially if you are an American signing up to receive Smarties in this thread, or, I guess, even for a Canadian offering to send them.
Now, I was not the originator of this idea.
It started in another thread, I believe under Manufacturers, and it was a clear exchange between an American person who wanted Smarties and a Canadian person who was willing to send them. They then worked out, on the thread, how they would do this.
For me, I consider this Smarties sending working three ways, but this is only my thinking.
If you sign up and are matched up, it could be a "one-off" where the American receives some Smarties from a Canadian FREE and probably only once.
It could be that the Canadian is able to send them without having to worry about the cost of the Smarties and stamps, and the American receives them for free.
Or, it could be that you are paired up and then an arrangement is worked out between the American and Canadian on how the American is going to pay the Canadian for the Smarties and the postage.
Also, with any of the three situations I've outlined above, I know, because I have had people post in this thread, that relationships between the two families actually do develop. That's the part that I especially like. Not only is a child receiving Smarties but a relationship is potentially developing.
I guess finally what I want to say, is please don't assume, if you sign up for Smarties, that they are FREE.
I have my own personal feelings about this, but I won't post them. It just has been brought to my attention that there may be some confusion or misunderstanding and I don't want this thread, which I consider to have run quite successfully to be suddenly met with a hitch. I think you know what I mean.

Cheryl, you have been "officially paired" with Jodi for the Smarties sending. I have sent you both e-mails off-the-board so you know who you're paired with. I hope this works out well for both of you. Also, Cheryl, many thanks.
I'll come back in later and revise the list, which I definitely know is getting shorter!

Here's another American wanting Smarties. The Vermont Nut Free are wonderful but we'd love to just have a package of candy. I just read Cheryl's post ahead of mine, and was going to just e-mail her, but it sounds like there's some others in line trying to get matched up ahead of me. Feel free to e-mail me for any coordination attempts. And I need an ingredient check for soy, soya, soy protein. Soy lecithin is safe and soybean oil is safe.
How are people working out the payment of these? This thread is tooo long to read over and find that info.
Thanks so much!!!!

Head Cook, if you go to just 4 posts above yours, one of mine, it explains how payment of the Smarties can work out, I think fairly well. It's really something you do with the person that you're paired with.
I'll definitely add you to the list, just when I thought I had finally shortened it some! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I'm only kidding. I'm actually quite pleased.
