Welcome to Gimme Your Stuff
(beta release).



















The Background:
A new friend of ours from texas requested we send her a tin of Aussie Milo, and in exchange, she'll send some tex-mex for our enjoyment. When we received our much awaited package, it was like all our non-religious specific holiday celebrations had come at once. We wondered how we could share this joy with the world...

How it works:
1) Create a new post on your blog indicating what you'd like to swap, make sure you add a link to us too!
2) Add your link to our list of cultural ambassadors on the right. (If you don't see a space to add your details, click on the Gimme Your Stuff title bar to refresh the page).
3) Click other people's links to see what they want to swap, and contact them to organise your exchange.
4) Receive your cultural exchange and email us your pic and amazingly fantastic story.

The best will be published whenever we get around to it.
Tell your friends immediately, and happy swapping!

Holy shit!

This is headed straight for novelty news item heaven. BBC news will come calling, Sandra Sully will do a special. You'll have to do interviews with all the big knobs.

Pretty soon you'll be contracted to sell Aussie wheat to the world. More money than ads or architecture.

All right. I'm in. So can we exchange anything?? Does it have to be cultural?

this is a funny idea, I swapped a travel pack of vegemite with a Frog here not so long ago...

Hello!

Very interesting concept! But I have one question: You mention on your blog that this idea is meant to target just about anything, whereas on my blog you mention that its more targetted towards food?

I'm a wee bit confused here, I must say!

Blogger Rikki said...

Hi Elb, it's been started with food as the main focus, but anything can be swapped really :)
Thanks Ben, sending vegemite to the unsuspecting world is generally my aim in life :)

Hi rrramone, you can exchange whatever you like, the basis of the blog is that it's cultural though, yes :)
You know, for learning and experiencing and that.
Are you gonna sign up or what?!

Win a bottle of Mexico's finest hot sauce-- no exchange necessary. Just listen to music and take your best guess (given the context).

What saddens me: I look over most of this stuff and you can find it in the chinatown of almost any major metropolitan city. I know that Ghiradelli chocolate and Rice-a-roni are the San Francisco treat: the internet has made them so much closer. *sigh* Ain't in awful? ;)

Hello Everyone,

Quick question: Am I supposed to already have a blog of my own, or do I set one up on the gimme your stuff website? Hopefully, the questions makes sense, since I don't know anything about blogs! Thanks for your help!
