The Postcard Project Cookie Swap

After I found out about the fabulous Great Blogger Cookie Swap in 2011, I organized one for all those that didn’t have blogs but still wanted to participate in a nation-wide cookie swap.  Well we’re back in business, kids!  If you’re a blogger, you can head on over to The Little Kitchen or Love and Olive Oil to get all the details and sign up, but if you’re a non-blogger that would like to participate in a cookie swap, you’ve come to the right place.

This swap will work like last year’s, and here’s the breakdown:  Sign up.  Get matched to three other participants.  Ship a dozen delicious cookies to each.  Receive a dozen scrum-diddly-upmtious cookies from each of your matches in return.  That’s a whole lotta deliciousness and love being spread throughout the US!

As before, the purpose of my swap is not only to spread joy and cheer through the sharing of cookies, but to support the US Postal Service.  (If you’re new to my blog, I work for the postal service as a data conversion operator at one of the only two remaining Remote Encoding Centers.  Basically that’s a glorified title that means I type a lot.  I started The Postcard Project to renew excitement about mailing postcards and letters, and supporting the postal service in general.)  Last year The Great Blogger Cookie Swap generated 1,667 packages of cookies, which ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at when it comes to revenue for the postal service.  The Postcard Project Cookie Swap generated 230 extra dozen shipped and raised $3,574 through Cookies for Kids Cancer‘s cookie swap matching program, which I’m pretty proud of, and I thank all of you who spread the cookie love with me last year.

Important Dates

Sign Up Deadline: Monday, November 4
Receive Matches: Tuesday, November 12
Shipment Deadline: Monday, December 2

    • We had a lot of Netherlands participants last year so I’d sign up for sure! If you click the “sign up” link you’ll see I address the subject of overseas participants.

  8. I’ve been confirmed already. I wanted to know can we submit our name twice and get 6 names to send a dozen of cookies. If this is possible I would like to submit my name again.

    • Wow, what a cool idea! I don’t think you can use the same email address twice so if you don’t have another email address to sign up with, let me know and I’ll just add you to my list with matches twice. :)
