WOW, I'm in, thank you!

Hello all, I am finally in and getting to figure this out, lol.

I'd like to thank my SP for the lovely e-card and let you know I will be answering your email questions as soon as I can. I do have to think about some of them and as usual I am running around like crazy trying to get things done around here.

This is so great. I'm so happy to be involved with such wonderful people.

Thank you all,

New Thank You Protocol

Do you find yourself scratching your head wondering, "Did my Known SP post a thank you to the board?" Our thread can get large and messy, which is why a new protocol for thanking your Unknown SP has come about. It also should make my coordinating a little easier, too LOL!

First, send a thank you e-mail to your Unknown SP when you receive a package from them. This means that Known SPs should provide their anonymous e-mail account to their receiving pal. In order to save sending the same message twice, use the "Cc" feature on your e-mail to send a copy to me. That way I'll know, too, that the package was received and a thank you was sent.

Second, you post a thank you to the forum, using the original registration thread. Within your post you can link us to your blog or the group's blog.

The group blog is primarily for those who don't have their own blog, but it's also a great place to post ideas, thoughts, suggestions—anything on topic of secret pals—to share with the group.

Aren't E-mail Savvy?

If you are uncertain how to use the "Cc" feature on your e-mail application,
click on these images which are screen shots to use as a guide.

Thank you again Yammy!

This final package from Yammy just arrived! The slippers are so cool and fit well. Just right for cooler evenings but I'm wearing them now! The blue basket has a lovely blue candle, some fun costume jewellery, Turtles nut chocolates, Hill brothers Double Mocha Cappucino and 2 bottles of liqid potpourri in fragrances Seascape and Mulberry. Thank you again Yammy, you are such a great pal.

Thanks Yammy

This is the great package I received from Yammy yesterday. I loved the bag, so straight away started using it! The pattern is incredible,where did you get it? Thanks again Yammy you've been a great pal.

Rescue Rangers

I received a message from Jamie with a great idea for the Autumn round and future rounds of the Secret Pals. Her idea is to create a group of Rescue Rangers, a voluntary list of Secret Pals who will rescue a stranded pal at the end of the round.

By registering, you will be put on a list in case someone is stranded. You will put together a package at the start of the round with a value between $5 and $10. If you are notified with a Rescue Assignment, all you need to do is pop the package in the mail. If not, hang on to that package for a future day.

Since this is voluntary, and a swap extra, if you register but later cannot send out a Rescue Package, it will not result in being inducted into the Hall of Shame.

Please only register if you sincerely wish to help out and know that you will be able to put together a rescue package and mail it when called upon for a Rescue Assignment.

To register, fill out this simple form to become a Rescue Ranger!
