I met a man in my apartment building this summer. We seem to meet at the mailbox most days. He hardly gets anything but junk mail. He has mentioned more than once about the amount of mail I take out of my mailbox. He is recovering from a stroke so I thought it would be a great idea to fill his mailbox with mail for Christmas.

I had John's address posted here but removed it. A kind swapper messaged me that it against the rules to post someones address (didn't wanna me to get in trouble ). So now I will PM his address to anyone that joins or just wants to send him a card.

So to recap : One card to your partner and one card to John.

This is my first time to host a swap so please bear with me as I keep correcting my mistakes.

Rating requirements : 4.98 and above. I will be checking profiles for questionable swappers and will remove anyone that doesn't meet the requirements.

This is a Christmas swap so let's get into the spirit of the season and make John's Christmas Merry as well as your assigned partner's.

I forgot to add that the cards to John and your partner can be store bought or a very well homemade one.

You are so thoughtful and kind to think of others ! I do charity work for the poor children in our area. It's so rewarding and wish I could see their faces when they open the gifts. But I will happily join in.

Can you inbox me John's address and a message to explain how I got his address, I can send aa card from the Netherlands.

porpie5 12/ 1/2014 #

Will you PM everyone in the swap automatically or do we ask for it? I am ready to send my partner's card - and John's! Thanks for doing this! I looks like it will create a lot of work for you! Merry Christmas to you!

JennaZ 12/ 1/2014 #

Wondering the same thing, I also need John's address and haven't got a PM from the host yet.

picupurcross 12/ 1/2014 #

Same here!

crescendo 12/ 1/2014 #

@gmasusie instead of the tedium of PMing everyone with John's address, you could also grab the comma separated list of swap participants' email addresses that you as a host can see when you click on "view participants", then send a bulk email with John's address to all participants by pasting that list onto the BCC line of your email. It is very important to use BCC and not the To or CC line in your email to keep everyone else's email private. That being said, with some email servers bulk emailing sometimes just will be flagged as spam and go to people's spam folder. Sooo, that option may or may not cover everyone...but thought it was worth mentioning anyway.

Momskii 12/ 1/2014 #

Please let us know how John likes all his cards.

gmasusie 12/ 1/2014 #

Thanks @crescendo I did email John's address to all the participants using BCC. I certainly hope it worked and none went to anyone's spam folders.

Anyone that still needs his address please PM me and I will PM you back with it.

crescendo 12/ 1/2014 #

I got your email!

TereDiane1954 12/11/2014 #

I, too, would like to know his reaction to all of the cards. Was he pleased?
