Welcome, VBers,<br>
Come this way!<br>
Welcome, happy holiday!<br>
Welcome, parcels, presents and sweets,<br>
Time to mail a box of treats<br>
For someone secret and far away<br>
To open with joy on Christmas Day!<br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b><br><br>
Rules/Guidelines<br><br></b></span> *You don't need to be vegan to participate, but all items included must be vegan. I realize that there are many vegetarian members of this board, and this rule was not added to slight them in any way, but just to simplify things and helps to avoid hurt feelings.<br><br>
*To participate in the exchange, you must have been a member for 6 months or longer, and have at least 150 posts. If you are close to meeting these requirements and wish to participate, please send me a PM and we <i>may</i> be able to work something out.<br><br>
*If you are under 18, please get your parents' permission before signing up<br><br>
*The suggested price limit is $25 (US,not including shipping), but homemade gifts are welcome too! Please don't feel that you can't participate if $25 is too steep. As shipping overseas can be at least $25 or more, so please note if you prefer to ship only within your own country.<br><br>
*If you have failed to send a package in a previous exchange, please PM me before signing up.<br><br>
If you'd like to join the fun, please send me a PM with:<br>
*Your VB name<br>
*your real name<br>
*your address<br>
*whether you are willing and/or prefer to ship internationally<br>
*any particular dislikes, food allergies, etc.<br>
*anyone with whom you would particularly like to be paired or not to be paired (for instance, someone you've exchanged with in the past)<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>Important Dates:</b></span><br>
Last day to sign up: Sunday, November 13<br>
Matches received by: Sunday, November 20<br>
Mailed NO LATER THAN Monday, December 12<br>
Package opening date: Saturday, December 24th/Sunday, December 25th<br>
Don't forget:<br>
Packages should be received by the 24th of December, so U.S. packages will need to be mailed by the 12 of December. If you're shipping overseas, of course it would need to be sent sooner.<br><br>
After everyone receives their matches, there will be a thread for you to anonymously ask questions of your match.<br><br>
If you choose to open your package before Christmas, please do not post pictures until at least the 24th of December.<br><br>
If you do not get asked loads of questions in the Q&A thread, please don't worry. Some participants already have ideas about what to get, so may not have so many questions.(or some, like me sorta stalk the person through VB to see what they might like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">)<br><br>
And there you have it. Let's get this party started!

Aww that seems so cool i've never shipped anything though, and if i got someone i hate i could not let myself use money towards them, so i'll probably stay out of it.

I have a question what is the Q and A section?</div>

<br>
Hehe, it's the Question & Answer thread. When everyone is paired up with another VBer there'll be a thread where you can anonymously ask your recipient questions to find out what they like and sort out a package they will appreciate.

Noo that's the fun of the Q&A thread! People get really anxious if they're not asked any questions, I think it's best to do it this way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
