Although I'm not participating as I hate christmas. I want to thank Jon once again for running this. I know it is a lot of work, and when people don't do as they say they will it adds a lot of headaches. You are a good man Jon.

I had one quick question: are we allowed to send the gift prior to December 1st?

Well I have not been on in awhile and I came on here just for this. I searched thinking I was early. I sent a pm to join if possible. If not I will start earlier next year. Thanks for running this.

I haven't heard anything since Oct 24th, so I reread the instructions and I just realized while I did PM the OP with the information well before Oct 24th, I did not reply to this thread as per the instructions. I hope I didn't miss out because I forgot to reply in the thread?

Nope not at all Alex.

I had to wait until the end of the signups to start matching people up with Santa's. It takes a while. Every Santa will be PM'd by the weekend, depending on Sandy, and it will give everyone 4-5 weeks to get and send the gifts.

I would give it some time. He stated earlier that he would pm everyone by the weekend or later depending on hurricane Sandy.

If you got in before the deadline you are in.

I now have to go through the 70 members and match them up with what they can give and what they collect. It takes time.

The PM's will start rolling out this weekend with your matched up member!

Please keep me posted as well as I am about to leave for business and want to make sure I get the gift off before I head to China.
Thanks!

I think you have better things to worry about.



OK all PM's have been sent out. PLEASE remember this is about giving and not receiving. Put some effort into this and get the items out in plenty of time.

I have about 20 hours invested in this and if you can't place a little effort then shame on you.

I will start a Package Received/Gift Break thread and see if we can get it stickied so it will stay on top.

Jon
