Katy Mann | 975 comments Hey all! It's time to start thinking about...Halloween!.

So I'm looking for people interested in a Halloween card exchange.

The format will be the same as last year, in that everyone will send their cards to a central address, and then I will mail them out. I will start the running list of participant names as folks respond. Please read information in the next post, as after last year's exchange, we have a few new procedures that I hope will lead to a better exchange.

Katy Mann | 975 comments Hey there! Almost time for the Halloween exchange!

This year will work the same as last year, with a bit more confirming due to the low participation in 2017. Just like last year, you will mail your cards to me, with a self-addressed stamped envelope, by 9/15. As we have international participants, I will be mailing out the cards before 10/1.

We welcome international participants, but this year, we will handle this a little differently. The post office does not accept foreign stamps, so you will need to send me $22.50, which is what I ended up paying at the post office for each international package last year when I mailed out the cards, in U.S. currency with your cards.

Please add your name to this thread, expressing interest, and send me a friend request on GoodReads. It is difficult to communicate with the group when I try to send a message to more than three people. I will need to send out a message with my address when it is time to mail the cards.

Step one: advise if interested.

Step two: a week before I send out the address, I will ask you to confirm. If you do not confirm, your name will be dropped from the list. We had one person contact me when I gave out the mailing address to say she had seen the post once, when she signed up, but had never come back and did not intend to participate. So I need confirmation this year as we had a number of people sign up who did not send cards. On 9/15, I will send out the count.

Step three: mail cards me your cards by 10/1. If you want your cards mailed to you individually over a period of time, please include address labels and enough stamps to cover the mailing. I will be mailing the cards out on 10/1. We usually have international participants, so I want to make sure they have time to receive their cards by Halloween.

Step four: get your Halloween cards in the mail and Be Happy!

Hi. You can join in. Just check the second post, from 8/12, which explains how to join as an international participant.

Thanks for joining. I will be sending friend requests to anyone I am not currently friends with. It makes it very hard to send notes to all if we're not friends. GoodReads puts up two verification for each person. I'm sure it's to prevent spam, but it makes it hard to communicate.

OK. I'm going to be traveling next week, so if everyone could confirm they want to be on the list starting today, that would be great. I will be sending the list of those who confirmed on 9/15. And please advise if you are international. Thanks.

It's a great list and it's going to be a great exchange this year!

Jennifer, I will be giving the count in a few days. You will be sending all cards to one address, then I will mail out. Please see posting at top from August 12th. I will send you a friend request. It is hard to send out PM's to multiple people (do not want to post an address on this post) unless we are friends.

Thanks for joining!


message 35: by Katy (new)

Katy Mann | 975 comments Hello, all!

I just sent notes to everyone who had not yet confirmed. I will be finalizing list and sending the count out later this week. You can get a sense from the list above how many we will definitely have and how many we might have if the rest confirm.

I can't wait! I'll be seeing you in the mail! I will send out the list of names in a few days, and the cards will be due by 10/1 so I can get them to the international participant(s).

Getting closer!

The eleven is not because you are mailing to yourself, but because I left off tattooed reader. Everyone who is participating should have received a PM with the exchange information. If you didn't, and you confirmed, please send me a note.
