Christmas Card Swap part 3.

Two things.

A) We absolutely cannot switch you partners right now. We are assigning partners as we get them. So if for whatever reason you are not happy with your partner, then suck it up, cause your stuck with them.

B) We are assigning partners now. So if you hear about poeple who have gotten their partners, but you haven't, we haven't forgotten about you. We have a method.

C) Once you email us with your info you commit to doing the swap. We cannot pull you out. So please don't just drop the swap from your agenda. We do not want to deal with poeple who don't follow through.

More about the christmas card swap

Some things I'd like to clear up about the Christmas Card Swap.

The first is that anyone can do the swap. You don't have to have a buddie, have asked for a buddie. Anyone can participate.

The second is that we hope to get partners sorted out assigned and emailed by the 18th. So working off of that date, all Christmas cards need to be postmarked by the 25th. If for whatever reason we don't get everyones information out by the 18th, then the date that they have to be post marked will change.

The third is that sending a package with your card is allowed, and totally optional. We've had some poeple say that they plan on sending packages with their cards, and that is cool. If you plan on sending a package contact your partner and ask about any allergies that might pertain to your package.

The fourth is that you can send any Christmas card, homemade, store bought...whatever.

And the fifth and final thing is that when emailing us the information make sure you use the form below and make the subject "Christmas Card Swap" or something to that effect. Also make sure that you email it to recoverybuddies(at)gmail(dot)com.

We understand that the holiday seasons kind of suck for a lot of poeple, and for people with depression and eating disorders....they probably totally suck. And our goal here is to simply try and make the stressful holiday season a little better.

The Recovery Buddies team is going to host a Christmas Card Swap. Everyone interested will submit their name, email address, and mailing address to us. We will sort through them, pair poeple off and the pairs will send Christmas cards to each other.

The reason we're just doing cards is because we know that money is tight right now, and that packages are expensive to ship. However, if you really want to send more than just a card(a small trinket or care package) with your Christmas card, that is totally ok, but not required.

Once you send your form into us, we really can't take you off the list, so be sure that you can commit to sending a Christmas card to someone when you send it.

Because this idea was thought up kind of late in the holiday season, it is likely that cards may received after Christmas. All forms must be received by december 15th.

If you are interested in the Christmas Card Swap, please email us at Recoverybuddies(at)gmail(dot)com the following form with "Christmas Card Swap" as the subject.

Email Address:
Mailing Address:

Christmas Card Swap "applications" will not be processed unless they are in that form.

How poeple respond to this will help us decide if we want to do more of these kind of things.

Any questions about this will gladly be answered via email at recoverybuddies(at)gmail(dot)com. Please do not post questions in the comments.
