Here's How to Participate in the Curriculum Swap

My idea for the curriculum swap is this:

It is fun to give things away!

It is fun to receive things!

Some people have things to give away.

Some people need things or would enjoy receiving something.

This is not going to be a swap as far as you-give-something, you-get-something.

This is going to be a give-if-you-want-to, request-if-you-want-to event.

I don't have the time or desire to micromanage this, so here's what I'm thinking so we can all play nice:

On July 7, 2011, from 7-9pm Eastern time ONLY, please post on the Supermom's Homeschool wall if you have something homeschool-related that you'd like to give away. Let people know all pertinent info on the item, and if you want some money for shipping, and how much that amount is. Is it just for US residents? Can Canadians or others participate?

To keep it simple, just have those that want to be considered for your giveaway comment under your wall post during the party.

You pick somebody to give your item to, and work out the details between the two of you through private message. Givers, please follow through on sending, and receivers, please follow through on the shipping cost, if that was part of the deal.

You can pick who to give your item to based on your own criteria, whether it be random pick, first-come-first-served, or whatever you come up with. Maybe you want people to tell you why they need it. I don't know, but that's for you to decide, and as long as it all stays family-friendly, anything goes.

To keep it all simple, givers please choose who you are giving to by the end of the evening, if you can.

Obviously, I cannot take responsibility for the success or lack thereof of the swaps you arrange. Swap at your own risk. :)

I hope you all have fun with this! Help spread the word. The more, the merrier! Don't you agree?
