Smile Mother's Day Swap 2012

Hello and to The Mother's Day Swap 2012!

Before you may participate in this swap, or any for that matter, you must first read and acknowledge the updated policies thread which can be found here. You will not be able to participate if this is not done! I would also recommend printing out the card swap flyer and sending it to your loved ones if you have not already done so.

Please read this message in its entirety, as it will thoroughly explain what you need to do and hopefully answer most, if not all, of your questions. At the end there are some helpful tips to ensure that our loved ones are getting mail!

Please start sending me your loved ones info now! Do not post their info in the public forum! All names need to be submitted to me by April 26, 2012. You lists will be distributed no later than April 30, 2012. That gives you approximately 2 weeks to get your cards to our family and friends. Please remember, it is required that you send a minimum of 3 cards for every 1 name you submit. If you can send more than the required amount, let me know in your pm.

When you send your pm, please do so in the following format:

Subject Box:
Title of swap you are participating in
Message Box:
Number of cards you are sending
Your screen-name and Your relationship to inmate
Inmate’s name and number
Prison/Jail address
Message to your loved one

If you need an address to use as your return address please let me know in your pm.

Yes, all of the information needs to be in your pm. It makes it a whole lot easier on the host/ess if the format is followed. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me!
Thanks for Participating and HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!
_____________________

Helpful Tips
*Do not send any stickers on cards or envelopes. Some prisons do allow it but most do not.
*Use your name and complete return mailing address. Mail can and will get thrown out if there is an incomplete return address. If you do not want to use your own address, there are members willing to let you use theirs.
*If and when you receive a thank you letter from a person, and they wish to have further correspondence with you, one of the following two options are preferred:
~If you are unable to write that person back, let the OP (original poster) know so their loved one is not sitting around waiting for your reply.
~If you are able to write that person back, again, let the OP know and make sure if it is okay for you to respond.
THIS IS NOT BECAUSE OF JEALOUSY, IT IS JUST OUT OF RESPECT

For Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma Inmates
Please do NOT mention getting their info on the internet. To let the inmate know who you are, just tell them you are a friend of the PTO member who posted them.
Example: Hello. I am a friend of your girlfriend. She said.....
If you are listing an inmate from any of these states, please realize you are putting them at risk. IF anyone sending cards to them mentions this site or their info came from the internet, they are the one who gets in trouble. These are the only three states that are known for this rule, however, this is good practice for ALL states the way regulations are always changing!

It would have been cool if we could have asked the inmates if they wanted us to send their Mom's cards.. but that would have taken too long I guess....and i don't know any female inmates either... well wait a minute I do... let me see if I can get her address.

We normally don't send cards to inmates family/friends. The purpose of the card swap is to send to the inmates to bring them some encouragement. Plus, there are plenty of guys inside that are fathers
