    Jump for Joy Holiday Gift Exchange 2013!

    Advertisements
    2013 MSOS Holiday Gift Exchange Sign-up!

    Holiday Time is here and everyone like giving and receiving.

    What is an Gift Exchange?

    You are assigned to a person who will not know who you are. (It's a secret)
    You pick out a Christmas/Holiday Gift and mail it to them, before the mailing deadline date.
    You reveal who you are with the gift you send (you can put a little note, card, or something with it).

    Someone else is assigned to you & will send you a Christmas/Holiday Gift.


    **There is a minimum post count requirement to participate. You will need to have at least 500 posts, have been a member here for at least 6 months, by the sign up deadline Sunday, 3 November 2013 at 23:59 EST AND have posted 25 times PER MONTH during the last six months (May-October). I know some will think the post count/time requirement is unfair.**

    The deadline for signing up to participate will be Sunday, 3 November 2013 at 23:59 EST, so get it quick so you don't miss out. You will be sent the name & address of your person within a few days after the deadline.

    The deadline for mailing the gift will be Saturday, December 7th. It is very important to mail the gift on or before the deadline date (preferably as soon as you can). We want to make sure everyone receives their gift and has time to enjoy it this holiday season. Please remember the time restrictions when signing up, if you do not think you can make the time restrictions, please don't sign up.

    Rules:

    1. Only sign up for the Gift Exchange if you truly intend to follow through. If you sign up and for some reason are not able to follow through, Please let me know ASAP. Keep in mind that if you sign up and don't follow through, you may not be allowed to participate in things like this in the future.

    2. You will need to be able to get a gift, pay for the postage, & get it mailed out on or before the deadline date. I can not stress enough how important it is to mail it out on or before the deadline date!!

    3. The deadline date for mailing the gift will be Saturday, December 7th. It is important to have it mailed on or before this date so that the person receiving the gift will actually have it for this Christmas.

    4. Please make sure that you acknowledge the person that sent you an gift. It's really important! If you can, please post a pic of the gift you receive. I'm sure we would all love to see the different gifts. That is a really fun part of the exchange too!

    Price Limit:

    The price limit will be $15.00. Please try to spend as close to that as possible. If you want to spend more that is completely up to you, but keep in mind that who ever is sending you a gift may only be able to spend the $15.00 on your gift. The $15.00 limit does NOT include shipping, so that will be extra. Shipping will probably cost around $5 or so depending on how heavy your gift is and which method you are using to send it.





    Sign Up:


    If you would like to participate, please make sure you have read the rules and that you can actually follow through with your part of the exchange.

    You will probably get more than one this year.



    Don't worry. Staff has decided to take care of the people that were skunked last year.
