If you love blogs about Peace Corps, you are in luck: The Online Education Database has posted its list of the 40 Best Peace Corps Blogs. Somehow, our site was left off this list but we’ll forgive them.
Next time you’re browsing our site, click the balloon for your country of service. If it’s empty, think of some links, photos, and other content you can add. The content should focus on things you want people to know about your country of service including on-going projects you want to promote. It can highlight your peace corps service and your time there too.
We have ordered 2013 Peace Corps International Calendars from RPCVs of Madison Wisconsin. Jeanette will be receiving them shortly. Supplies are limited to get your order in soon as you can. The cost is $10 per calendar (but we’ll gladly accept more, wink!).
Each month in the calendar displays vivid, color photographs of a featured country. Holidays and important dates from around the world are listed. Calendars make great gifts and profits go to support RPCVs of NENY.
Use our Contact Us form to place your order. Buy several and use them as gifts. You can bring payment (cash or check) to one of our meetings or events. Jeanette will be the main contact for orders.
