If you’d like to write me a letter or send a package, my address at site is:

Christina Baum

PO Box 90

Kasinje, Malawi

Southern Africa

I am LOVING ALL THE LETTERS that I’ve received and truly enjoy hearing how your lives are going back in the US, so please send me some snail mail!

If you’d like to send a package, I would love to receive:

Trail mix
Wet wipes
Peanut M&M’s or other dark/milk chocolate (it shouldn’t melt)
Dried fruit (crasins, apples, pineapple, anything!)
Non-peanut nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts)
granola
Grape jelly
Beef jerky
“Pilot G2 .38” pens
Parmesan cheese
Pretzels
Drink mixes
Little american snacks

The best way to send a package is probably the international flate rate boxes. Thank you ahead of time if you’re sending one! They make me so happy.

*As a heads up, mail can take up to three or four weeks to arrive, while packages can take six to nine weeks. According to the Peace Corps literature I’ve read, numbering your letters and writing “Air Mail” on the envelopes is advisable. Additionally, small padded envelopes for packages are recommended if you are sending something small. Lastly, drawing religious symbols on the envelopes and packages may reduce the chance of them being tampered with*
