    Hermes RAOK 2010 Questionnaire

    Are you willing to take on an International Buddy?

    What are your favorite shopping websites?
    What are your favorite stores?
    Do you have any food allergies?
    Name 3 favorite Snacks/Candy/chocolates?
    What is your favorite restaurant?
    What is your favorite chain/ fast food place?
    What is your favorite Perfume?
    What is your favorite Candle?
    What is your favorite Color?
    Do you have Children or Dogs/Cats? If so, can a gift be included for them too?
    Is it ok for your buddy to send chocolates/candy and/or flowers?

    Is there anything in particular that you dislike?
