Coldplaying Christmas 2009: Secret Santa - Post a pic if you already received a card :D


Recommended Posts

NOV 1st - UPDATE 3

 

Pm's sent, we have 172 Secret Santas from everywhere! thanks a lot guys and don't forget to send the cards

 

some important reminders:

 

* Don't reveal your match to anyone!

 

* If you have a question, please contact the elf that sent you your match, so we can maintain secrecy for everyone

 

* If you do have a question or problem, we will do our best to help, but you might not get an immediate response... we've had a pretty hectic weekend

 

* Don't post a picture of the card you are sending or it might spoil the surprise for the recipent... we can post pictures of the cards we recieve later on

 

* Don't all send your cards tomorrow! Check with your local post office how much you delivery will cost and how long it will take to arrive at it's destination... we'd like everyone to recieve their cards by December 15th if possible but it would be a bit daft if people were getting Christmas cards in the second week of November

 

* Once you have posted your card, send a confirmation PM to Santa with something like "Card sent" in the subject box

Considering the big amount of people interested :D we'll start to receive the messages with your details now!, we just need your name (just your first name if you want) and your address (be sure that we won't share any of your details, the only person who will know that will be your secret santa

 

please send to details to the SecretSanta account *click here to send the PM*

 

Please write the name of your country in the subject box so we'll try to pair you with someone from far away :P

Timetable

Great idea, but those shipping things are kinda frustating.. maybe something on the forums here or somewhere else over the internet?

 

Maybe like those signs as lately.. not exactly the sings but the idea of it.. or making a photo of yourselfs with a christmas card created by their owns for Coldplaying members?

 

Don't know, it sounds kinda weird :P

still don't know what we can do, I just want to know how many of you would be interested in something like this.

 

the ones who sent postcards to coldplay last year probably know about shipping costs, sending a postcard for example is not that expensive, just around a dollar I think

It would be cool to send "holiday" card. Not everyone celebrates Christmas but we'll all be moving in to 2010.

 

It's hardly "shipping" to send a card. It's very cheap, wherever you're sending it to. I've swapped postcards with a few Coldplayers since the PFFA project, it's fun to get mail from another part of the world.

 

I'm in.

Love this idea! I'm in, too! :)

 

as for shipping, can't speak for other parts of the world, but when I sent copies of LRLRL out to Switzerland and Australia, it only cost around $2 each. Really cheap, I thought. :)

Exactly, and a card would probably be even cheaper!
