I love sending and receiving cards - handwritten, tangible, line-them-up-on-the-mantel cards. Sometimes I feel like I'm doing all my connecting through the computer - liking this or following that - without actually taking the time to get to know the person behind the profile pic.
I want to slow down a bit this holiday season. I want to write love notes to my favourite people. I want to send cheesy family updates and adorable photos of Grady rocking his Santa hat. I want to connect. And I want YOU to help.
I'm hosting a holiday card exchange and I hope you'll play along. Just fill out my form and I will match you up with someone to exchange holiday cards with (I'll do my best to match you with someone not local to you. Long distance mail is more fun!) I won't sell your information or anything creepy or dishonest like that. Fair warning: I might use it to send you a birthday card or a random note one day.
And just to make it even more fun, if you want to participate, there's a totally optional $2 buy-in. Send $2 to my paypal account at firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be entered to win the Christmas Spending Money Pot. Everyone who sends me $2 (and participates in the holiday card exchange too, of course) will be eligible to win. I will draw one name on lucky Friday December the 13th and that person will win ALL of the money that is sent to me. I'll post a list of participants (first names only) to keep things on the up-and-up.
I'll leave the form open to sign up until December 1st and let's all aim to get our cards in the mail by December 13th. Sound fun? I think so!
