:xtree:

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'm making a list and checking it twice!!!! Well not quite, but i will be checking to make sure you've recently signed it) 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 nomes via pm by november 30th. Your lists will be distributed no later than december 2nd, sooner if i can. 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: 2015 christmas card swap

message box:
  • number of cards you are sending
  • your screen-name and your relationship to inmate
  • inmate’s name and number
  • prison/jail address
  • brief message to your loved one
  • let me know if any of your recipients have special needs with regards to cards, ie only white envelopes (sorry angela!)
if you need an address to use as your return address please ask the host. Some members do allow us to use their po box although this is not available in every swap. Or if you are willing to let people use your address as a return address for others, 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.

*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 & indiana (state, not fed) inmates.

Inmates in these states are no longer allowed to advertise on a pen-pal website:

If you have a loved one in any of these states please contact me (nomes) via private message.
Thank you all in advance for participating !!!

Hugs and it's beginning to feel alot like christmas...with cards for all our gals and boys!

Nomes
read and understood

Hello, how's the swap going? Any delays in sending out lists (hopefully due to overwhelming number of participants), because I haven't received my list yet?

The last date to post items to the USA from the UK and have them arrive before Xmas is the 15th December.

As I've told Shari......y'all please need to be gentle with me....I had a surgery yesterday at the hospital and had forgotten about the deadline for the swap.....IT WILL DEFINITELY be all done tomorrow as soon as I am home and have my other paperwork in my hot little hands....don't want any of our loved ones to miss out on cards, especially at this time of the year....so this is the last, final boarding call for names to be submitted.....in the group setting....if you submit a name after this, and I don't let you know it's on the Major List, I cannot guarantee how many cards your loved one (s) will receive.......and go!

Hugs
Naomi

Nomes, I hope you are feeling better after having undergone a surgery that you apparently scheduled some time ago.

It is now December 5th as I write these words (December 6th in your native Australia). I still haven't received my list.

Nomes, prison mail rooms, particularly those here in the United States, tend to get overwhelmed in December. Because of the December backlog, many American prisoners often will not get their mail for a week or two after the prison actually receives their mail. Because you were unable to do what you promised to do, some of the prisoners whose names I have sent to you will not receive their Christmas cards until after Christmas. I am sure I am not the only person taking part in the Christmas Card Swap whose loved ones will also receive their Christmas cards late this year.

Please send out the lists today. If you are unable to do what you promised to do, please ask someone else to take over your responsibilities. Thank you.

Default Your patience is appreciated...

Howdy CVs!

First & foremost, thank you all for your patience, this is massively appreciated. My apologies for the delay with the swap.

I do understand we all (including myself) want our loved ones to receive holiday wishes, and on time, at that. Oftentimes things come up that our beyond our control, which will require more patience on our part.

Mail for inmates is extremely important to Nomes, she BREATHES for this very cause! Lists will be sent just as soon as she is able. Please remember we are all volunteers here & all have the same goal in mind & in heart, sending smiles to those who need it most.

I'm here in the forum since a couple of years now and I have never read a subtone like that in a post....Sorry, but we don't treat each other like that here! I want to distance myself emphatically from it! Nomes, you deserve better!!!!! Your health comes first...

Luckily lists are going out now ... I do believe we all are a little disappointed with the delay, this is natural.

Keeping in the spirit of the holidays ... let's do what we do best, let's pull together... be supportive & continue with our purpose.

To those complaining their loved ones will get their cards late.. better late than never

Nomes.. take care and feel better soon!!

Thank you Texas Angel, to put it into the perspective that we are all volunteers here doing the best that we can.
When you're in inmate any day of the year that you get mail is what we call a happy mail day ..!
