I gotta care share.

No note included so I accidentally doxxed the sender at the end. Amazing share...Truly... Let me know if you would like me to re-edit so your name is not out in the world.


Wow apparently my computer mic is messed up. Very fun. Anyways, believe me that I was speaking in a full voice this entire time.

My very first care-share came in a few days ago and I'm so excited to finally participate. My friend zevolution sent me

Spoiler:
Image

- a thoughtful note on interesting stationary
- wonderful smelling coffee
- Italo Calvino's "Marcovaldo"
- Jane Jacob's "The Nature of Economies"

Despite being an internet white guy, I know very little about coffee. I have an aeropress that I use sometimes but I don't own a grinder so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with these coffee beans. I suppose I could sneak into the grocery store and use the grinder there? I'm not really sure but I look forward to trying it. I had mentioned that I read an enjoyed Calvino and Jacobs and I'm sure I will enjoy these. I read Jane Jacobs when I was 18 and it really informed a lot of my later studies and interests but I never bothered to look into her other work so now I'm very excited to have the opportunity. My girlfriend who is not much into reading at all even picked up The Nature of Economies the other night and is enjoying it. Thank you so much @zevolution! I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone else care packages!

If you followed me on Mastodon you would have known I did a LIVE unboxing of my delightful share from a very meaty boy! https://youtu.be/VfWefTXLYU4

Extremely chuffed with this. Smashed the JBs and have been constantly using my Baggu. I've also put your letter in my fridge. Thank you so much!

Our friend @CMYK came in heavy with an eclectic batch of stickers, snacks, paper ephemera, etc.

Favorites include this patch and these stickers right here:

Other notable mentions include:
-What seem to be ROLAND BARTHES STICKERS
-A fanny pack, notebooklet, and pencil from that mysterious monochrome lifestyle company we've all heard tell about, but never seen in the wild
-A novel chronicling some of the last of the merchant marines
-Homemade and bootleg posters with an overall brooding theme (I may be projecting)

It was a good year! Thank you so much!

ahhhh I'm the worst. My sincerest apologies for not posting this sooner - I've been enjoying the care share for over a month. but better late than never I suppose!

I received a FANTASTIC care share from @titkitten. I'm seriously amazed at the quality of these gifts (and quantity! I can't believe how many things she stuffed in the box!) I've eaten just about all the biscuits and cheese already, and I've been wearing the sweater a lot as well.



Thank you for such amazing gifts - I'm really blown away!

Care! Share! Care! Share! Care! Share!

Thank you so much @wrong for the fantastic Care package! :-) I felt so bad unwrapping the bundle of stuff because it was very thoughtfully wrapped and arranged. There's a place in my life for all of these things and I love that.

Inside the box was
- Cool Milsurp Shirt Jacket (I've been looking for a good one of these)
- Comme des Garcons 2 Man Sample (I really love this, I might buy the full size because I'm tired of Jazz Club now)
- Tide to Go Stain Pen (I actually really needed one of these - I'm a dumb baby and spill stuff a lot.)
- Spicy Peanuts (!!!)
- Chewy Fruit Candy (in a variety of flavors!)
- Fancy Atomic Coffee (I'm incredibly cheap when it comes to buying my own coffee so I'm very excited to use this.)
- King Krule's The Ooz (This is the King Krule album that I've listened to the least, so this is perfect!)
- Two (2!) Books that look like they will be very interesting reads. (I've always been fascinated by astronomy/physics but for some reason find it very VERY difficult to actually understand it/see what other people are seeing, so I'm sure this will be great!)
- A very pretty photo of the beach in MA that's now stuck to my wall beside my mirror.
- Supreme/Michael Jackson sticker that will be passed forward to the next care share like it was to me (how cool! we love a legacy).

I would like to thank @radicalbusiness for his very generous care share!
It feels like a present from a friend I've known for a long time.
I honestly absolutely love all the items, I can see you've put a lot of effort into it!
You really put the care in the share!

Hello friends!

Image

I declare open the Care Share season. Send your completed form before Friday 25th October to take part.
I'll send you the person you've been matched with the following weekend.

If you've never participated in a Care Share, please have a look through the thread to get an idea of what people have sent and received in the past. Usually I spend around £50 including international shipping (the expensive part!). I try my best to match people who want to keep costs down with others who live in the same country.

The deadline to send your parcel is Sunday 24th November.

I will send you regular updates to your email address so please check your inbox regularly. Don't hesitate to email me if you've got a question!

Happy Care Share! :woop:
