    What Is It?
    * Secret Santa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Requirements
    * This is open to all people on Living Reefs who have been registered by October 1, 2009 or have a minimum of 30 posts.
    * If you are under 16 years old and you wish to participate, your parent MUST call Bifferwine on the phone to approve of your participation. No exceptions. This is because if you are not old enough to drive, don't have a job, and are not old enough to have your own credit card, you will probably be relying on your parent/s to help out with buying and shipping the Secret Santa gift. And it's not cool to sign up for something like this without their permission.
    * The minimum gift amount is US $20. You can go over, but that's up to you.
    * Pairing will be totally random.
    * The person you send to will NOT be the person who sends you a gift.
    * If you DO NOT want to ship outside of your country, please specify that in the Private Message. If you do not tell us, you might get paired up with someone who is outside of your country.
    * The packaging must be worksafe. Feel free to double box it, but the box outside needs to be work friendly.
    * You must provide tracking numbers.
    * You must send your recipient an item off their list. You can be creative and flexible, but don't send them some random crap totally unrelated to what they asked for.
    * Gift items do not have to be aquarium related, but they can be.
    * Do not send anything that violates any local, state, federal or international laws.

    How To Enter
    * To enter, send a Private Message to Alexander.
    * Subject Needs to be 'LR SS 2009 - Username'.
    * Please provide your username, gender, full name, address and a phone number.
    * Specify destination preference - US/World
    * Wish List - must list at least 3 to 5 items, under US $20.
    * Feel free to tell us a little about you so we can forward that to your Santa.
    * ONLY ENTER IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PARTICIPATING. IF YOU SUBMIT AN ENTRY, BUT DO NOT FOLLOW THROUGH WITH SENDING A GIFT TO SOMEONE ELSE, YOU WILL BE PUNISHED. APPROPRIATE PUNISHMENT TO BE DECIDED SHOULD THIS OCCUR. DO NOT ENTER IN THE LIVING REEFS SECRET SANTA 2009 UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO SEND A GIFT TO SOMEONE ELSE. I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. DON'T MESS WITH ME. DON'T RUIN THIS FOR EVERYONE ELSE BY BEING A JERK. IF YOU ENTER THE LIVING REEFS SECRET SANTA 2009, THINKING THIS IS AN EASY WAY JUST TO GET A 'FREEBIE', YOU WILL BE SORRY.

    Shipping Information
    * US Post Office Priority Mail Service would be the preferred choice.
    * To locate a post office near you
    USPS.Find a Business - Results - United States Postal Service ID=1222
    * To print your own shipping labels and get started
    https://sss-web.usps.com/cns/landing.do
    * After you send the package off, send an Private Message to Alexander with the following info:
    Subject of the email needs to say:
    'xxx to yyy - Shipper - Tracking Number'

    Where xxx is the sender
    yyy is the receiver
    Shipper - UPS/FEDEX/US Post Office
    Tracking Number - Tracking

    Deadlines
    * We want all entry emails with wish lists in by November 25.
    * We will send off the paired information by December 1.
    * You have exactly two weeks, until December 15, to send off the gift.
    * Gifts MUST reach the recipient by Christmas Eve, December 24.

    If you have questions regarding the Living Reefs Secret Santa 2009, please send a PM to Alexander.

    We've been doing this for 2 years now, and last year we had a really great turnout. It's a lot of fun and doesn't cost a lot of money!
