We have been blessed by this website, and met some wonderful people on it.

Back before Hallowe'en, we sent a box of Nestle Safe to Share to a family in Australia who's kids could not get safe Nestle smarties there. This family just wrote to say it arrived (half a year later!) and their daughter had her first ever taste of smarties. What a great feeling!

Costco here had a great deal so I picked up another 130 treat sized box, and want to send it on to another family across the globe that doesn't have access to these safe treats(no cost, no shipping, no strings attached).

Who lives the furthest away from us in here in Ontario without access to safe chocolate treats for their kids? Just wanting to keep up with my New Years Resolutions and pay it forward in someone else's life.

Warm regards,

Syd's mom,
you are an Angel.
What a lovely gift to give and what an act of kindness.

Well, if you go West, I'm pretty far from you. I'm in Quebec. You'd have to go ALL THE WAY around the globe ;-)
Jokes aside, that's a nice gesture you're doing. Congrats

Syd's Mom, excellent stuff! [img][/img] This is quite thrilling, actually. I still remember the day that Nestle announced they were going to discontinue the line of safe Smarties and how it felt as though the world came crashing in.
Just wonderful, Syd's Mom, wonderful. [img][/img]
Best wishes! [img][/img]

Ah Gosh - didn't mean to drum up alot of thanks, but thanks just the same.
Since I'm not getting any takers, can you Rae, Renee, Darthcleo, and Cindy think of anyone here who doesn't get the opportunity to be part of the Canada Smarties exchange because they live outside the USA, and in a country that doesn't get safe Nestle smarties?

What a Sweetie indeed! How kind!
How about Lisa in Australia who posts frequently off topic? Might be other Aussie's around as well. Not sure if I have noticed anyone further. Was someone in Korea? becca

Darthcleo - your right - she's getting a box too! Contest closed.
I'm emailing both Helenm and Lisa from Australia to send them each a box! Thanks for your help. Warm regards,
