    :heart::heart: MJ Valentine's 2009 Random Acts of Kindness Gift Exchange :heart::heart:

    ** Please read the following rules carefully. There have been several changes. **

    What it is:
    This program is similar to a "secret santa" gift exchange. You will be randomly assigned a buddy whom you can send a small gift to through the postal mail this holiday. You can send cards, sweets, trinkets, magazines, books, cosmetics, goodies, etc.; anything you think would be fun to brighten his/her day! You can even decorate the package/envelope using MJ themes. The goal is to perform a "random act of kindness" for another person!

    This program is for active tPF members who regularly post in the Marc Jacobs Forum only. If you would like to participate in this exchange, you will be expected to send one small gift to your assigned buddy before February 7th (February 1st for international participants). You will also be expected to post pictures of gifts you receive from your buddy in this thread for the enjoyment of other participants. Participants from any country may enter. You will be matched up with a buddy who agrees to send mail to your region. International participants must be willing to ship globally and ship their packages no later than February 1st. You should expect to spend between the minimum of $25 and the maximum of $40 (not including postage costs) on your assigned buddy for this one package. Also, it is now MANDATORY to ship all gifts using a trackable method. Due to concerns raised in the past please do not re-gift or send samples and other freebies as the majority of your package. Obviously, you are not expected to send MJ merchandise as gifts!

    :excl: If you are unable or unwilling to follow the rules outlined above please do not participate. :excl:

    How to participate:
    1. PM me (Melly) your full name, e-mail address, postal address, and the following questionnaire. Please be sure I will not distribute your information to anyone except for your buddy. Also specify if you are male or female, and your mailing preference for your buddy (US only or International OK). Please note, all international participants must be willing to ship globally. All entries must be received by January 23rd to participate in this exchange!

    2. I will e-mail you the information for your buddy by January 25th. You can research your buddy's preferences through tPF posts, or prepare to send them any fun gifts you think they will like. Participants are encouraged to use MJ and Valentine's Day themes to decorate the envelopes/packaging if possible. (Think ribbons, old MJ bags and boxes, magazine clippings, computer printouts, etc.)

    3. In preparation for the upcoming holiday, please send your buddy one package for their enjoyment! If you notice a sad post by your buddy in the forum, maybe you want to cheer them up! Or if you see a happy post you can congratulate them. You may reveal your identity to them in your package.

    4. You will be receiving gifts from a different buddy in the mail! When you receive gifts from your buddy, please post pictures of them in this thread. You are now expected to post pictures of your gift within 3 days of receiving the package.
