Default Mega Awesome Christmas Card Swap 2018

Hello and Welcome to The Christmas Swap 2018



Before you may participate in this swap, or any for that matter, you must first read and acknowledge the Card Forum Guidelines which can be found here. You will not be able to participate until this is done. I 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 (via PM) by 1st December 2018. Your lists will be distributed no later than 4th December 2018. That gives you approximately 2 weeks to get your cards to our family and friends. Please remember, it is required that you send one card for every name you submit. Please let the host know if you are able to send more cards then the required amount.
:xmas elf:

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 relationship to inmate
Inmate’s name and ID number
Prison/Jail address
Message: Personal message you would like to include for your loved one
Note - If there are special instructions for your LOs facility (ex. white envelopes only) please include this in your PM

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 may not available in every swap.

Yes, all of the information needs to be in your PM. It makes it a whole lot easier on the host if the format is followed. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or a forum staff member.

Thanks for Participating and HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!

Maytayah

The swap is now closed. Thank you to everyone taking part.

We have 42 inmates and 20 volunteer sending out a total of 181 cards

That means each inmate should get at least 4 cards.

If anyone else would like to send cards and has not received a list please let me know and i will send you as many names as you would like.

If you still want to submit inmate names for cards then please list them in the forum as a special request.

Thank you all for bringing Christmas and smiles at mail call.

Bum! I see I missed this! I have three inmates that could use Chrissy cards and am happy to send at least three in return. Is it possible to sneak in as I only just discovered this thread??

I posted my cards in Denver so I am waiting to see how quickly they get to their destinations this year.
I bought some pretty santa stamps and wrote my cards at the airport waiting for my flight home.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part.

As a fairly new member and slowly trying to get involved with my new life so to speak, unfortunately I missed the Christmas card swap. I would love to get involved and send birthday cards or New Years cards if it's not too late for that please let me know how I go about doing this. Thank you so much! I know how my son feels when I send him a card and I imagine some people don't have anyone to send them cards. It's a great thing that you all are doing and I would love to be a part of it!

What is my next step in order to join? I realize I missed the Christmas card swap. Is there a list of names that you send out to people that we would send cards to?

Thank you
I would love to send a card to your son and you can send one to my son. Do we just provide the address here ? Or does it have to be somewhere private in the Forum? I know there was a whole procedure for the card swap but since that is over I just need some instruction pretty please!
Thanks in advance!
