It’s that time of the year….Ponfel’s Christmas Card Exchange!!!
Thanks again to everyone who took part last year I hope you all re-join the exchange this year – add your friends get them involved I think we could all use some Christmas cheer.
Here’s what you need to know:
Who can join?
Anyone who wants to send and receive Christmas cards
What to do?
Buy or make your own Christmas cards, write a message inside your cards, buy stamps and mail your cards away – and then wait for your personal cards to arrive in the mail! It’s that simple.
You need to fill out the “What’s Needed?” section below and the number of cards you want to send will be the number of addresses you receive to send out to.
There is no cost associated with this activity besides what you spend on cards and postage – Australia Post will charge for a stamp in November and December $0.65 as long as the cards are endorsed ‘Card Only’ and weigh no heavier than 20 grams.
You are allowed to send anything you want to the addresses you receive, as long as it is appropriate and not too costly. However, it is a CARD exchange. If you send gifts, do not expect gifts in return.
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will receive all your cards.
If for some reason you have to drop out of the card exchange, please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the appropriate changes to the mailing list.

For privacy reasons at the end of the year your information will be destroyed and if you wish to partake next year you will need to resubmit your details again.
What's going to happen?
