I don't buy many (I would if funds let me) so the ones I do buy are a treat, one being lifestyle magazine Oh Comely.
This month they are running their Perfect Strangers scheme, a pen-pal like project that gets people to reach out, to be creative and send a parcel of happiness to a stranger. I decided to sign up as it sounded fun and last week I was given my swap partner, Kerri in Anchorage, Alaska.
They give a small list of things to include in the parcel which I'm currently collating and will post about once it has been sent and received.
What to include...
- A modern day message in a bottle - a USB in a jar with a playlist/photo's/fave film etc...
- What's in my bag - empty the contents of your bag on a photocopier and annotate the image, or send a fresh sample of something you're never without.
- A wintery treat - something that makes you feel cosy on a winters day.
