    Hey everyone, I would like to get a PiF box going up here in Canada. It will follow the same guidelines that the VU one has laid out for the one they did not to long ago. I think it would be a great thing for us Canadians, it will help us get to know more people in the vaping community up here and possibly help others out. I'm posting this to see how much interest there will be and if it will be viable. If we find enough people interested and some willing to help donate to get this off the ground I will start a new thread with all the fine details and guidelines that we will follow. If you'd like to see how it goes I would suggest reading some of the posts from the VU PiF thread, it looks like it was a lot of fun for everyone involved. If there are any questions you can reply here or pm me and we can go from there. Let's make this happen Canada

    Yes! Great idea. I'd definitely like to toss some stuff into a PIF box too!

    Well we got a few interested now, let's hope we can get enough to get this going. I know that I got a handful of things to toss in even a couple new tanks that are dying to have someone use them.

    Anyone have any thoughts on how to get this talked about more? I've been thinking about putting a thread in another section so more people see it

    I think our largest problem is going to be number of subscriptions. How many Canadians are actually on VU, or at least on a regular basis. And then of those, how many will be willing and can afford to participate. I would love to be wrong, but I think the number of Canadian VU members is rather low unfortunately. This is why I think this PIF box isn't receiving as much attention as the US ones do.

    Granted I hope I'm wrong and we can actually get a good box going, I would love the opportunity to finally participate.

    Yeah I to have wondered how many "active" Canadian accounts are on here. I've seen lots of Canadians but in most cases it's been months since they've been active.

    Here's to hoping, later on today I'll put a post in another thread and see if we can get more traffic.

    Well guys I'm really starting to wonder how many active Canadians are on this forum. I'm going to start a thread in another section and see if we get more of a response but I'm kinda starting to lose hope that we can make this happen. If anyone has any ideas let me know.

    Yeah I truly figured we could make it happen. I got a box full of stuff that's just waiting to be used. Let's just keep our hopes up and maybe cross our fingers. Maybe if anyone reads this and needs something let me know cause I probably have something sitting around.

    Just a long shot in the dark, I doubt you'd have one, but do you have a quad 18650 parallel box?
    Kind of a tall order I know, but never hurts to ask, eh? haha

    I might take part in this. I have a few boxes I could PIF. So how does PIF work? IF I send out the box do I eventually get it back?

    It's basically a box that floats around from person to person, take what you need, leave what you can sorta thing.

    I don't know what it's like in the states but I think one of the limiting factors to having a successful pif in canada is Canada Post. There is no cheap way to ship a box around. For me to send something from east coast to west coast is anywhere from 20-30$ which in some cases might be more than the actual value of the box itself. It's the same reason you see places in the states offering free shipping after like 30-40$ and here in canada it's usually a 100$ minimum. I'd love to see this happen if it weren't for the shipping costs.
