The Happy Pants Foundation

happypants

Are you Canadian?

Do you long for goods that you can only get while visiting the states?

Do you make friends with people in the United States just so they can send you products from Amazon that won’t ship to you?

Well that is what The Happy Pants Foundation is for, to bridge the gap of awesome between Canada and the US. All you have to do is join the foundation and you will be given a US citizen sponsor who can pick you up products from Trader Joes or Payless or any other store that wants nothing at all to do with little ol Canada.

So American citizens, join Happy Pants and sponsor your very own Canadian!

Canadians, you now have an answer to your cry.

Coverage and offer not available everywhere, some Canadian locations are in the middle of nowhere and not worth the trouble. Email for locations, do not call because we don’t answer the phone. Ends whenever we fucking feel like it, we’re doing this shit for free. May require begging and sexual favors. Additional terms and restrictions apply.

    Trader Joes I understand, but do people really feel like they’re missing out because they can’t shop at Payless?

      @Amanda, it’s a joke because there were Star Trek sneakers that Gwen wanted but they wouldn’t send them to Canada or wouldn’t take her credit card so I got them for her. I’ve done the same with Amazon for her too.

    Most companies that I’ve purchased from ship to Canada (I mean, hello? We’re right next door!)

    Only crazy companies don’t ship to the Great White North! But if I find something that I absolutely MUST have, I shall join the Happy Pants Foundation. Question-Do members get a free shirt with that picture on it? 😉

      @Hannah, of course you do…as long as you make the t-shirt yourself.

    This is friggin’ awesome! I remember when I was going through my stroller obsession phase, we helped each other ship STROLLERS across the borders! Yup. (ok you won’t get the stroller part but the concept is the same…)

    Now can anyone ship me a box of Coffee CRISPs??!!

    p.s. We need more liberals here. Please send more from Canada. SOS. Many thanks.
