A Swap Party
Posted September 24th, 2009 - 2:13 pm by from Montreal, Canada (Permalink)
I would like to invite everyone to my house for a little get together. I've done "salons" at my homes all over the world and I know this concept is a little foreign here in Taiwan so I would like to start simple.
A swap is where you bring all your clothing, books or perhaps other items you no longer use or need and we exchange them. SO YOU DON'T NEED TO THROW ANYTHING AWAY!! Kind of like a barter party. So if you want something you must bring something :) At the end all that is left over I send to West Africa to donate to the people in need there.
This kind of gathering has a second purpose which is exchanging ideas, networking and just plain getting to know our fellow humans!!
The party will be held at my house in Yong He a 7 min walk from Ding Xi station on Sunday October the 11th at 6 pm.
If you need detailed instructions just let me know if you are interested and I will mail you a map :)
An added note...if you would like to bring some snacks or drinks to share I ask that 1)they are of the vegetarian sort and 2) NOT from a convient store (as part of the purpose of this gathering is to support people in need. It excludes big corparations so try your traditional market or make something yourself)
If you have ANY questions or comments or FREE hugs please let me know!
SEE you there:) or here rather :)

Kristina,

What a good idea, wish i could join however, i am not in the city that weekend. Would like to meet up and join for this kind of activities, it is meaningful.

Besides, i am vegetarian as well, would like to cook in your place if that i ok for you. However, i am not a professional chief so that would like to meet up with you one day and we can share about the experience and etc.

Hey Kristina,
I'm new to Taipei and would love to join you!
However, as I just arrived, I still do not have that much stuff to give away. But you should to another salon next summer when I'll be leaving, I'll have tons of stuff that I can't take back with me =)
I may contact you again next week for directions to your place, as I still have trouble finding my way around.
Best,
Carmen
