Hm... I'm debating on whether to do this... it would be really fun... so to make sure; it's safe? like, I don't want to go giving out my address...

the mods say they've never had problems b4, and nobody sees your address if you don't put it on the card.  from everything i've heard it's really a lot of fun! i just finished designing my cards...can't wait to get started!!

Just signed up.  I've made a TON of homemade cards but I'm so sorry to say they're for family.  I just don't have time to hand make 80 cards (family, friends, co-workers and two online card exchanges!) but each U2 exchange card I send will have a little something special in it!  ;)

How about doing E-cards??

We talked about that earlier in the thread. This exchange will just be snail mail.

If you can't participate or are uncomfortable to do so, I am sure some of us will send you an extra special PM!

You shouldn't keep secrets from your family, but I think I understand the fine line some people tred on this forum between secrets and privacy.  That being said of course people you know on the forum will still want to wish you and others well for the holidays!

It is the thought that counts , whether it isa few nice words or elaborate creativity just seeing them arrive in the mail with the post marks from all over the world is the most exciting . I have kept every single one over the years in a special U2 FAN card box I made . Every once in  a while I take them out and read them. Very touching ., brings tears of happinenss to my eyes. These memories of my fellow U2 friends I will keep forever. Have fun with them .

I believe we will get our addresses some time around Dec. 12 (subject to change of course!).

I'm the Card Exchange Coordinator. I'm still gathering names and addresses for the basic Excel spreadsheet I use on my home computer; no fancy software program! I have a big master list that I add your addresses to when you first send me an e-mail wanting to participate or I check to see if your info is already on there from the previous year. Then, it's just a matter of using that huge list of names to create a bunch of smaller lists of 20 people on each. The small lists are the ones that I will e-mail to you. The lists are randomly put together and will only go to the 19 other people who are on it with you. They'll be the only ones with your address. There's been someone doing this every year for the past 11 years (this is my third time organizing it), and I've never heard of or had any problems occur for participants, so rest assured.

Y'all have been busy! I was all caught up two days ago, but since then I've gotten 60 more requests that I still need to add to the master list!
