What do you do while you are stuck at home in the era of COVID-19? When you’re a soccer-mad Canadian, you get creative and start trading maple syrup for soccer scarves from all over the world, of course.
Daniel Robertson, 19, lives in Whitby, Ontario with his family. To pass the time for what has been, well, a quiet year, he’s been trading syrup for scarves through a merry Reddit thread I think.
Robertson hasn’t had to worry about anyone responding to his unique exchange idea. Since its first publication, it has received an impressive 113 scarves from 59 countries: from Latvia, Japan and Singapore, from Nigeria, Belarus and Senegal.
For Daniel, receiving emails from all over the world has been a pleasure. In fact, the surprise gifts have made you feel a bit like you’re traveling, while staying safe in one place.
And it’s not over yet. To complete your collection, you would love to receive 80 to 90 more scarves, one for the 193 countries currently recognized by the UN.
