The name of our club, after all, is Glambs International, so I feel it’s only right that we try to help our international friends as much as possible. As one way to do this, I’d like to start an “adoption program” whereby a Glamb in the U.S. agrees to “adopt” a foreign counterpart for the purpose of mailing copies of magazines that may be either unavailable where they live or outrageously priced. I’m talking about magazines like Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Elle and any other magazine that may have a major Adam article/photo spread.
If you’re interested, here are the instructions. First, if you live in the U.S. and are willing to adopt someone, please post a new comment (as opposed to a reply comment) below stating your intention and how many Glambs you are willing to adopt. Then, if you are an international Glamb and want to be adopted, please reply to the comment of the U.S. Glamb. That will be the partnership.
If someone else has already replied ahead of you, please wait until someone else offers to adopt. I leave it to the “partners” to work out payment for reimbursing the sender for magazine and shipping costs. Seems to me that PayPal would be a great way to go for this.
I don’t want anyone giving their email addresses out publicly (you will get spammed), so if you decide to participate in this program, whether you’re the adopter or adoptee, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will hook the partners up with each other. Just make sure in your email to me that it’s clear who your partner is.
I don’t know how well this will work out, but I feel it’s worth a try! If you have any questions or foresee any major problems with this idea, please let me know. I will start things going with my comment below.
