Secret Saints - Raised 772$ Total for Childs Play

Oh, those rascally Secret Satans!

All they do is want, want, want!

"Oh," they say, as they twirl their evil mustaches in their leathery fingertips.
"I have to give something BACK in order to receive something? Well, I suppose, if I must."

We, the Secret Saints, say NO! I WANT NOTHING IN RETURN BUT THE JOY I'LL FEEL FROM YOUR JOY! For, there is no such thing as a selfless act.


RULES AND REGULATIONS


SAINTEES

You're broke, you're in college and completely drowning in work, you're illiterate -- for one reason or another, you don't have the means to give anything this year.

1) You must NOT be on the list for Secret Satans.
2) If you do not receive anything, you can't whine. Seriously, as if we owe you anything.
3) You must post after you've received your gift, and appear happier than the happiest you've ever been. That is your gift back to the community.
4) Would appreciate it if you were on the honour system here and truly could not afford to participate in Secret Satans this year, not just "Didn't feel like going through all that trouble."
5) If you get a lump of coal or a single lego brick, refer to #3.
6) If you have a kid that you can't afford to buy for and would prefer someone bought a toy for them or something, please give us the sex/age of the brat.


SAINTS


You're kind and generous -- or maybe you just have a ceramic cat in the house that you've been trying to pass off onto someone else for the past 8 years. Whatever the reason, you want to open your wallet to another individual and say YES! YES, I AM AWESOME.

1) No lurkers. Sorry guys, but I'll be looking up your screen names and making sure you aren't crazies. Or at least, aren't bad crazies.
2) Try to get your gift to your selected person(s) prior to January 15th. Of course if you decide not to do it at all, that's cool too. You're kind of running your own boat here.
3) A postcard counts as a gift. A small bag of marbles counts as a gift. A single jellybean tied with a ribbon counts as a gift. I think you get the point.

Alright Saints, get ready to do your worst (best).

Email me @ mulldacity at yahoo dot com with your forum name: saint (MULLY: SAINT, for example), and in the body of your email, please tell who you are choosing to send things to (can be more than one person), OR, the number of random people you would like to be assigned.

The tallies for each individual will be written next to their name in the OP, so please use your best judgment when selecting.

My apologies if it takes me a bit to respond/update.


HOW'S IT ALL GOING TO GO DOWN?


1) Sign-ups end on November 15th.

2) SAINTEES will sign-up by filling out the below and sending it to mulldacity AT yahoo DOT com.

(Your forum handle must be the subject)
Real name:
Address:
NSFW OK:

3) After the 15th, SAINTS will be welcome to select as many people from the list to gift as they desire, by emailing me with the usernames.

4) SPECIAL BONUS THING: I will donate $2.00 extra to Child's Play for each Saint who participates. EDIT: SO WILL NEVILLE! EDIT EDIT: SO WILL SOME GUY NAMED HORSESHOE! EDIT EDIT EDIT: ANNNNND CORPORATELOGO, TOO!



If you have any questions, post 'em in this thread.

TL;DR: You get stuff for free. Yaaay?



Happy Holidays!


mod approved.
also, secret satans is awesome and you guys suck for having to miss out on it.

    i wish it could be more but i am not exactly some kind of rich dude with money

    HOWEVER

    whatever it is, i'll make sure we give over 100$ so my company will match it.

    t swill: i expect that the saintees list will be much larger, and i am hoping that the saints will choose people they do and dont know -- do know for well thought out gifts specific to that person, and maybe just random cards/candies for those that they dont know.

    no way

    I seriously can't really afford to send a gift this year, but I still wouldn't be a saintee. Too much Southern Pride.

    which is why I'm doing Satans! Seriously this is a great thing, mully

    so far im getting a lot of people telling me "man! im broke! thats an awesome idea! ...but im not going to be a saintee!"

    you people and your goddamn pride

    would it help if i added you but gave you MADE UP NAMES?

    then the saints wouldnt know who the hell they were choosing

    ...till they saw the real name i suppose

    I'll definitely be a saint. Seriously, if anyone's embarrassed about being a Saintee I don't know most people's real names so I'm ok with getting just someone's real name and a link to their wishlist without any mention of who they are on the forum. Or I'll swear myself to forum secrecy. But yea, I just like to buy people things so Ill be sad if no one signs up.

    yeah, but they shouldn't

    if you think about it, this is the way gifts normally work. the absolute obligation to give something back isn't normally there anyway, it's added in for secret satans.

    for this one, you'll only receive a gift if someone sees your name on the list and decides they want to give you something. it's not like they have any obligation to, so if you get something it just means someone felt like giving you a gift. awesome!
