SECRET SAINTS! THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I'm your Huckleberry YOU'RE NO DAISYRegistered User, ClubPA regular
Yes folks, it is that lovely time of year again where those who can help those who need!

If you don’t know what this is I’m going to wager that you aren’t eligible

But just in case

I need SAINTS! Saints are people who, out of the kindness of their heart, want to help out a few people who aren’t having the merriest off holidays.

Here are the rules for Saints

1. You can choose to give to as many people as you want. Just 1? You’re amazing! Everybody? You’re amazing!

2. There is never an obligation. If you need to back out for any reason just let me know so I can move some things around and make sure everyone gets gifted.

3. You may gift completely anonymously if you’d like. Just let me know when you sign up.

That’s it! Those are the rules!

If you wish to be a Saint just send me a PM on here. Add how many people you would like to gift as well.

I NEED SAINTEES! Saintees are people who need a little extra cheer. Maybe you would like a couple things for your kids. Maybe you’re spending all of your money on your kids and can’t afford anything for yourself...or maybe you just don’t enough money to do anything for the holidays. That’s why this thread exists!

There are a few stricter rules to being a Saintee

1. You can’t sign up for Secret Satans. If you’re doing Satans, that’s awesome... but you can’tbe a saintee.

2. I have to know you or you need a vouch from someone I know. To protect the amazing Saints from being bamboozled, I can only accept people I know are legit. I’d hate for someone to sign up and lie just to get free stuff. Highly unlikely, but still...

3. You MUST have a wishlist! Not optional! You can share the wishlist here or send it to me in your pm when you sign up.

4. You must make a post here saying you’re signing up and just giving a rundown on a few of your favorite things. Favorite color, shirt size, favorite sports team, etc...

5. When gifted you have to post in here with an awesome post about how awesome people are and talk about your awesome gift!


Lastly, I want a few IMPS! Imps are people who can act as a middle person between Saints, saintees, and myself. Generally not as important since this isn’t nearly as cloak and dagger as Satans but still useful.

LAST NOTE:

Please don’t be ashamed or embarrassed or afraid to sign up. This is the best damn community on the internet. Nobody is here to judge you and nobody will ever think less of you because you’re having some struggles. That goes for every year but ESPECIALLY for this year. The people who sign up to give want to do it. It’s all love here. Please don’t hesitate to sign up for any reason.

For everyone who signs up as a Saint, I love you and you’re incredible. I’ll say this many times to all of you before the year is done, this is just the first one.

    Oh and last year I got yelled at for not doing this

    I’m not signing up. I’m not assigning anyone to myself and I don’t want a single dollar spent on me, especially if it means less money spent on someone who does sign up...

    But to avoid being yelled at here is my wishlist

    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1JI9WWSRW1YJI?ref_=wl_share

    I had fully planned on being a Saint this year but then Covid stripped away all of my usual overtime and my wife and I filed bankruptcy a couple months ago. So any extra money is going for the kids.

    That being said, I do not need anything and do not take a penny away from another person for me!

    I'm in a place where I can be a Saint this year. I was a Saintee 7 years ago and it really helped me out and made me feel less alone on the holidays. I want to be able to help others this year.

    So we currently have a handful of gifters...and ZERO giftees!!

    I know you’re out there you magnificent people. I’ve got people just itching to spread Christmas cheer and nobody signed up yet!

    Like....it would be kind of AWESOME if everyone was doing great and didn’t need to sign up but I highly doubt that is true...especially this year.

    Come on you beautiful people!

    So I was looking forward to signing up for Satans this year after the continued generosity of this community over the past few winters.

    But the pandemic and my continued declining health issues leaving me almost house ridden leading into seasonal affect season has me focusing on essentials like eating and bills and keeping some back for emergencies.

    So again I'm grateful for this community, it means the world to me sharing it with all of you, and your generosity love and support over the years has been life changing for me.

    I sent my Amazon link to Raijin, and I'm going to edit it a bit still but you all know me pretty well. I like coffee and foodie stuff and small technical or artsy projects to do with my hands and metal or heavy music and such. My favorite colors are midnight blue and forest green along with earth tones.

    I have 8 gifters and 1 confirmed and 1 pending giftee. Plus myself I suppose.


    Come on people! Get those sign ups in!

    There’s technically no deadline, I’ll try to work you in as a gifter or giftee at anytime (even like July if you need something)
    But let’s go!

    I will probably look to sign up as giftee (for my son) again this year. Slowly losing money turned into rapidly losing money a month ago when my car was totaled.

    signing up again, not feeling bad about it this year because it's been a bad year and it's not over yet. not gonna get into too much detail but basically
    i've been on borrowed time for the past 2 months at the house i currently live in and have no idea when i'll have to be out of it (and where/if i'll have a place to live) other than "sometime in the near future??"; hopefully i'll have enough warning to message raijin in case there's stuff being shipped to me whenever it happens

    been unemployed for two and a half years now (the plague and the living situation stuff above haven't helped with that). sad honest confession: i don't even know what to ask for/want for myself because everything feels like a luxury to me now

    amazon wishlist: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/N8SMON5IE2ML?ref_=wl_share
    (bare right now, will update soon)

    game systems i have: ps4, switch lite
    i've got two dogs, both around 50-60lbs (beagle mix and plott hound mix)


    i don't know what else to add here right now and the amount of anxiety i have could power a major city so i'm gonna stop and just post it. if you got questions, message Raijin; he's also the best person to bounce ideas off of for me

    edit: also, i've not problem with used/less than new games or whatever

    I'm gonna sign up for this again, I'm not exactly in a great spot right now.

    A more concrete list is forthcoming, but I have a PS4, a switch, and a PC. My PC is missing a graphics card right now, so I could certainly use some new parts for it.

    I play Magic and league so boosters or league stuff is also gravy.


    Wishlist:

    I definitely need some kind of graphics card, I cannot play games right now because of an issue, likely with the graphics card. It's possible the problem is with my motherboard, really my computer is a bit of a mess right now as I'm just plugged into integrated graphics.
    Cooking supplies/Recipe Books
    MTG Booster packs
    Breath of the Wild for the Switch
    Ring-Fit for the switch
    Luigi's Mansion 3 for the switch
    Immortal Hulk Volume 7
    This Godzilla print

    I'll update the list if I can think of anything else
