Description:

Picture above is of him & all of the Halloween cards you guys sent him. YAY!

Grayson is my 27 year old son who is developmentally delayed due to a rare chromosome disorder called "Ring 4". More information on this disorder can be found via a link on my profile.

He LOVES to receive mail...especially holiday greeting cards. He hangs them up & decorates his bedroom (he calls it his apartment) door with them...sometimes he keeps them up way after the holiday is over too because he likes them so much :)

So...for this swap you will send 1 Christmas greeting card to your partner & 1 Christmas greeting card to Grayson. Your greeting card can be store bought or handmade. Please write a little note, joke, drawing, or some other fun Christmas greeting inside.

If you would like to include a flat surprise for Grayson inside of your card, I have a little list of his like's on my profile. Please know that he will enjoy your card just as much even if does not contain any extras.

He will be opening these up on Christmas Eve. I can't wait to see the smiles on his face & same some of the pictures with you all. Thanks for helping to make Grayson's Christmas Special

I'll PM you the address to send Grayson's cards to when partners are assigned.


RULES: NEWBIES WELCOME! No recent and/or unexplained 1's or 3's. Must have a good swapping history & a well filled out profile. I will be checking participants VERY THOROUGHLY before assigning partners. If you have a concern about someone who has signed up please let me know privately.

There is no need to send anything extra for this swap....just a card is great & that is all that is required for this swap.

If you want to send something to Grayson, please know that any used, handmade, & recycled items are just as good as something you bought from the store. Grayson will love it just the same.


People have requested that I post a little wishlist for Grayson so here goes...

  • He loves getting a single dollar bill in the mail. He saves it in a special bank to go to the movies. He likes single dollars so he can count them himself. He just went to see The Grinch with his Halloween card money & was so happy to count it out all by himself )

  • $2 bills...he freaks when he gets one & is sooo happy. He says they are magic money & he never spends them - LOL!

  • Jokes...just sent to him printed or written from the internet or kids joke books.

  • Magnets (like you put on the fridge)...he puts them on a mini fridge in his room upstairs. Any animals, (especially cats)...kids characters, etc. We just got a leaf magnet in a swap & he was so happy :)

  • Kids books like Berenstain Bears ( but he has most of those)...Little Critter, Pete the cat, Disney, & books about Grandma's house. Any other used or new children's paperback books at around that reading level.

  • New or used comic books. Any popular characters, superhero, Disney, kid themed, etc. Also Manga books...he likes to look at the pictures & makeup his own story.

  • He loves cats & has a little cat themed ATC, & ATC Coin collection. He loves anything to do with cats...cards, jokes, books, magnets, little collectibles, etc.

  • He loves to play like he's a waiter & takes your order on a piece of paper. Ohh, he would love one of those waiter books. He likes to set up a ticket booth or a grocery store & has you buy tickets or food. He has a great imagination.

  • He has 2 of those Ashton Drake baby dolls...Emily & Suzy. He likes clothes, blankets, socks, & other stuff like that for them.

  • He enjoys eating out, bowling, going to the movies, broadway musicals & live Disney shows, & video games.

  • A couple of his all-time favorites are The Power Rangers & The Wiggles & loves anything having to do with them.

  • He likes just about every Disney, Nickelodeon & other kids characters out there, boy or girl.

  • He's not that into coloring books, stickers, tattoo's, trucks, or puzzles.

Thank you for joining my swap & again, please know that you don't have to send Grayson anything for this swap, just a card.
