    I am not sure I understand the QB "Angels". Is there a place you sign up to send someone something? Or receive something from another QB member? No one has my address and I don't have anyone else's. How does this work? I see so many really awesome "surprises" people have received in their mail. I love the concept of sending someone something special to bighten their day....

    In my experience I have had someone contact me asking for my address because they wanted to send me a surprise and via versa. There's no list of names that I know of.

    Sometimes in a swap someone fails to get their swap. The leader of the swap may contact someone to be an "angel" and step in and make a special swap for that person. It is, at least I think so, an honor to be chosen to be an angel.

    Some of us have been in round robins or swaps and have some members addresses. I love to Pay it Forward. I think this is such a wonderful "life" concept.

    Some of the "angels" are those who send a make up gift that were NOT sent out by the orginal person in a swap. If a swap host finds out that someone didn't receive their gift then she has an "angel" send out a subsitute gift so that person isn't left out..that is my understanding..

    Glad someone asked this question. I was just thinking the same thing. I love the Secret Pal thoughts and acts. Now I know. Thanks

    My "angel" came from a post I had made. And I love her to death and "She knows who she is". :)
