Hey all! I enjoyed this Valentine’s exchange in previous years, so I decided to organize one this year too.
Here are the rules we’ve used in the past years, which we’re re-using this year:
If you are currently registered on the SDMB AND if you are at least thirteen years of age at this moment, you may participate.
To participate, you must send the following information to me via PM:
SDMB user name
Real life name (optional for those who don’t care if mail is addressed to their board name)
Number of valentines you can mail (most people last year sent 10)
U.S. and Canadian members: indicate whether you’re willing to mail outside the U.S. and Canada.
Send your PM by 11:59pm U.S. Eastern time on Saturday, January 30th. I should have your addresses back to you by Monday, February 1st, for you to mail out in the following week.
Gender specifications/requests and other limiting requests (other than number to be sent) are not permitted and will not be honored. So, there!
As far as the mailed cards go, it’s up to you what to send. Store bought cards are okay; homemade cards are fine, too. If you want to go wild and crazy with the glitter, go for it. Candy is often appreciated. This is all about having a good time. It’s fun receiving the flood of mail, and it’s really fun to see what other dopers came up with. Don’t feel pressure to be creative, though; the most important thing is to send something.
If you live outside the US, please don’t hesitate to sign up. This is open to everyone, geographically speaking.
