Announcing--the 2019 DT Holiday Card Exchange

It's time for Dobermantalk’s 2019 Holiday Card Exchange to begin! Yup, the holidays will be here before you know it!


I’ll be running the 2019 DT Holiday Card Exchange…which basically just means that I am in charge of collecting and distributing names and addresses to everyone who wants to participate.

Send all correspondence to me at [email protected] Please do not PM me.

How does it work?

Those that sign up send holiday cards to each other. Some send pictures. Please don’t send gifts or items that won’t fit in the card envelope. It’s fun!!




Important Dates:

By October 31st

Please send this information to the above email address in this format:

1. "Real" Name:
2. DT User Name:
3. Names of pets:
4. Full Mailing Address:
5. Your e-mail address: (For my benefit only, so that I can send the completed list to you--I will not include your email address on the final list I send out to all participants)
6. How many people you want to send cards to—all or half of the list.**
7. Whether or not you are willing to mail outside of the US—if shipping cost is an issue, you can opt out of overseas mailings.


If you do not include your email address, your list will be PM’ed to you.


I will confirm receipt of your information, so check your email account (including trash ) or private messages respectively. IF YOU DO NOT HEAR FROM ME WITHIN 24 HOURS after you’ve emailed me your info, PM ME!!

**You must either commit to sending cards to 1/2 or to all of the list. Of course, you can send cards to more people, but you must meet your commitment. If you commit to sending cards to only 1/2 of the list, I will chose names for you, to ensure that everyone will receive some cards.


By November 3rd

I’m not sure how many people will choose to participate. Right now we have around 10 people who have expressed interest.

I’ll update how many people have signed up here right after registration closes—You will have until Nov. 3rd to respond back to me if you want to change your commitment level.


Within the first week of November

All participants will receive the full list of names. If you are only committing to mail cards to half of the list, your half will be marked off for you. If you have not gotten your list by November 7th, please email me.


By December 1st

All cards must be mailed to make sure cards will be delivered on time.


Of course….
People of all denominations and beliefs can participate in the DT Holiday Card exchange.

The card list will be sent to everyone who submits his, hers or their family’s address. It will not be given to anyone who does not share his or her address or contact information.

Don’t share names and addresses on the list with anyone else, either on this forum, or anywhere else. The Holiday Card Exchange is not intended for inappropriate use of any kind. Please respect everyone’s privacy and use the information provided only for the card exchange.

Come on folks...join in the fun. Only 10 more days to sign up!!

To give you a clue about your "workload", only 7 people have signed up so far. And you can request to send your cards to only half of people on the list---that's, what, THREE cards?


Sign up closes October 31 and I'll be making my final list. I'll tell you folks via PM just how many people have joined in, and at that point you can take yourself off the list if it looks longer than you had bargained for. (Of course, once the list is sent out, you're stuck )

If you don't want to release your "real" name and address to other participants, I can just put your user name on the list. Send me your address and I'll keep it on my private list, for my eyes only.

I will ask other folks who want to send a card to you to enclose their card, in a stamped or prepaid envelope labeled with the username (in pencil would be nice) inside an outer envelope with my address on it, and to send it to me. I'll address it properly and get it mailed to you.

(Any of you folks who have already sent me your info and who would actually prefer not to have your name released, let me know via PM or email, and I'll do the same for you.)

So step right up and join in!!

Sure sounds like fun to me ! Just think - YOU may be receiving a card from Mr. Business and our family - You know how many people across this country wish - dream of this ? Us sending them a Christmas card ? The numbers would be staggering .

Hey, I already signed up, but I am wondering if the vote results were ever posted for the Oct Calendar?? I can't find where I might have missed it. I am sure Mel won and rightly so.
I just wanted to congrat her and don't know where to do so.

Thanks, CressrB--
Yeah, I don't see an official announcement; I just kinda assumed Kip won looking at the vote totals.

Maybe Dax is doing a recount--hanging chads or something.

OK, folks, we have 9 participants.

A PM and email have been sent to each of you who signed up asking for final verification of how much you plan to commit to. Send me a PM or email <[email protected]> by midnight, Nov. 3rd, or I will assume that what you initially sent me is what you want to do (half list or full list). You can also withdraw your name if you've changed your mind about joining in; just let me know.

You should be getting a PM and an email from me by Nov. 5th with names and addresses.

Happy almost Holidays!!
