PostSubject: 2012 Secret Santa.   Sun Nov 04, 2012 9:08 am

2012 Secret Santa is happening! To participate, please email the below survey to secretsanta@parrotparadiseforum.com. All participant surveys should be in by November 17th.

The price range is $25.

Name:
Mailing Address:
Parrot(s) Species:
Parrot(s) Name(s):
Parrot(s) Likes:
Parrot(s) Dislikes:
Willing to ship internationally:

As with last year, the below rules apply:

  1. Names and addresses are collected by the Secret Santa administrator.
    There need to be an even number of names so that everyone interested
    sends and receives something for their bird.
  2. A price point
    would be voted on by everyone interested. Gifts should be kept within
    this price range. For example, we could do a general price range for
    everyone; we could have multiple price ranges for people interested in
    lower or higher price points; or we could have price points for
    different sizes of birds since small bird toys are generally much
    cheaper than large bird toys.
  3. Once a master list of names
    and addresses are received by the Admin, in this case me, people in
    specific price ranges are paired up together. For example, if I were
    participating (I'm not participating since I'm running it), I would
    receive the name and address of another member and a little information
    about their bird(s). I would buy toys, food or whatever for said bird(s)
    and mail the gift with a card of some sort.
    Hypothetically,
    let's say I was paired up with GlassOnion. I already know GlassOnion has
    a budgie and a cockatiel. Let's also say that I signed up for a $20
    price point. GlassOnion would've filled out a survey about her birds
    detailing their likes and dislikes. For this hypothetical, let's say
    Apple really likes shreddable toys and Spice likes toys with bells. I
    would purchase $20 worth of toys fitting these descriptions. When I pack
    up my package, I would also include a non-denominational happy holiday
    card and send said package, with tracking information, by December 5th.

  4. All
    names and addresses of those interested would be used only for this
    exchange. I would have the master list for use of giving your name,
    address and bird information to another member only. Names and addresses
    will not be made public.
  5. Everyone interested would be
    paired up in early November. Gifts would need to be sent by early
    December. Tracking numbers would need to be supplied to the
    administrator to confirm a gift was sent.

Okay, question from me:-)
How do you send your gift to be anonimous? They told me at the Post Office, that I can't put 'Secret Santa' as a sender -Sad

I've never had the post office require that I fill out the "sender" portion of the package if you're using one of the priority, etc. boxes. You should be able to leave it blank!
