    May Secret Pal Swap Closes April 30th 4pm CST

    Description:
    This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you receive from.




    1) YOU NEED TO SEND THE HOSTESS A PRIVATE MESSAGE WHEN YOU MAIL YOUR PACKAGE TO YOUR SECRETPAL.

    2)ONCE YOU GET YOUR PACKAGE FROM YOUR SECRET PAL, YOU WILL NEED TO SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE TO THE PERSON WHO SENT THE PACKAGE TO YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU DID RECEIVE IT AND TO THANK THE SENDER.

    3) AFTER YOU HAVE THANKED YOUR SECRET PAL, YOU WILL NEED TO SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE TELLING ME THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PACKAGE SO THAT I CAN KEEP ACCURATE RECORDS.

    FAILURE TO SEND THESE PRIVATE MESSAGES IS REASON ENOUGH TO BE BANNED FROM THE NEXT MONTHS SWAP.


    PACKAGES NEED TO BE SENT OUT BY May 16th, this is a FIRM deadline (NOT A SUGGESTION). IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT MAIL BY THAT DATE, PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP. You can send your package as early as you'd like!


    If you are sending an international package it will need to be mailed by the 10th of May. Due to mail processing, our mail dates for international mailing has to be as early as possible! No later than the 10th of May. It can take many weeks to reach your SP so any delays in mailing can delay the start of the next month’s sign-up sheet being posted.


    Once you have decided to join the swap, please send me a PM with the completed information sheet.



    Our International board members are welcome to join the swap.

    Sign ups will close the 30th of April, and names will be paired on the 1st of May and sent out no later than the 2nd of May. (I will try to have all names out on the 1st.)


    2. If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time (7 days max from mailing deadline for within the same country. Then I will need tracking information, 15 days for between countries. There are exceptions, but I MUST be notified of any delays in sending on your end). Failure to comply may result in the following:


    This is why it is imperative that you keep the hostess informed on ANY mailing issues. Along with negative feedback, you will not be allowed to participate in future secret pal swaps. It is also possible that other coordinators will not allow you to participate in their swaps.

    It's all about fun, so please have fun with it.

    If you have questions, please PM me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.

    Hi Ladies!
    I was hoping to join you this month, but at long last, we're closing on our new house on May 15th and moving in on the 21st! I suspect the change of address would be a big old mess, so ... I'll see you all in June. I sure do miss everyone!

    Feel the fear and do it anyway!

    I collect postcards and would be happy to send you some money to get me a few from Italy while you were there. I have a strong family connection to Italy. My great grandparents came through Ellis Island from Italy in the late 1890's. If you don't mind doing this for me. Please PM me your address do I can send some money. Thanks.

    Love to all, Robyn
