Cindy,
If you still need people to send smarties to others on your list, you can include me. I can make a smarties run up to BC (the border is only about 20 miles north). I don't know for sure, but it probably saves on postage to ship within the US instead of from Canada to the US.
(Do I know what I am getting myself into? I sound like I am volunteering to become a US smarties dealer! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] )

Triciasmom, thank-you! As long as you're sure it's not too much trouble for you, I will "officially pair" you with Frances. I will e-mail you both straight away to know that you have been matched.
Hey, you could be a lot worse than a Smarties dealer!
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Okay, I think I cleared up any misunderstandings that were going on that I wasn't clear about. So now, given that we have had two "official pairings" to-day thanks to Joanna G. and Triciasmom, I have the following people that would LOVE some Smarties. For all of us Canadians going out to pick up some for our children that didn't think we'd be able to do so ever again, perhaps you could consider one of our U.S. friends who were instrumental in getting Nestle to reverse their decision.
The list:-
Diane (for Steven)
Head Cook
adjoz 6
barbsch
M's Mom
Carol (information through me).
Many thanks and best wishes! Does this ever feel GREAT! Yahoo!

I would be interested in sending smarties to one of our american friends. I live on the east coast of canada, so it might be more efficient for a pairing from someone on the east coast. What is the procedure?

Jeez, BrendaJ., you've raised a whole new question for me that I've never had to deal with before. What I usually do, when I get a Canadian who says that they will send Smarties, I simply "officially pair" them with the first person on the top of the list.
I actually don't know where any of the people on the list live, aside from the fact that they're in the U.S.
However, you are able to ask the person you are paired with for both the cost of the Smarties themselves and the cost to mail them (I'm wondering if you were particularly concerned about postage rates from the East Coast of Canada to say the West Coast of the U.S.). But then, I'm thinking about that, and the postal rates are the same regardless of where you're shipping to in the U.S. It's based on the weight of the package you're sending. And again, you can ask the person you're sending them to to pay for the postage as well as the Smarties. This is something you work out between the two of you once you are officially paired.
Now, just for easiness sake, on my part, I'm going to "officially pair" you now and then if you have any difficulties with this, since you wouldn't have read this post yet, you can contact me and let me know.
BrendaJ., you are now "officially paired" with Diane who would like Smarties for her son Steven.
I will e-mail both of you now to let you know that you have been "officially paired" and again, BrendaJ., if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to either post them or contact me.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Man, I go through all 5 pages to try to find Diane and realize that I should have put "information through Cindy" beside her name as well. So fine, I can contact Diane myself to let her know that she has been "officially paired".
Then, I try to contact Brenda J. and no e-mail address listed so I'm not able to contact you to let you know that we have accepted your offer gratefully to send Smarties and that you have been "officially paired". Could you please contact me?
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Okay, given what I consider an "official pairing" above, I now have the following people on my list who would like some Smarties. I'm sorry if this seems like I'm posting and posting, but I'm really trying to keep track of this well, especially if I hit any glitches along the way.

BrendaJ., I have Diane's e-mail address. I will copy yours now that you have it listed and I will e-mail you from my regular e-mail account with Diane's e-mail address. Sorry for the confusion.
