All new Special Sisters exchange - FEBRUARY 2010

Post by Polly » Mon Feb 09, 2009 9:17 pm

Hello ladies!
There are no secrets, your sister WILL know who you are... I decided to keep the Special Sister idea, because I had problems myself with the Secret Sister thing. When you sign up to be a Special Sister, you are REQUIRED to send your sister at least two gifts per year, one on her birthday, one on her favorite holiday. If you don't plan on doing so, please don't sign up, as this is an EXCHANGE game. YOu are also required to keep in touch with your sister, an email or a card here and there, however you choose to communicate. Ladies from other countries, PLEASE join if you wish to do so, and I will try to match you up with someone from your country. If no one is available, then I will let you know.

If you got a sister back in October, you don't get another one now. You will get a new one in October.
Here's the basic form for the sign up. Please fill it and send it to ssdfan@gmail.com. DO NOT PM ME! I like to heave all the sign ups in one place, as I might forget someone if my PMs get deleted. Any further information will be exchanged between you two. Sign ups will start TODAY 02/23/10 and will end SUnday 03/07/10.
1. Your Doll-Fan name
2. Your real name
3. Your complete address and phone number. (This will not be given to your sister just yet, it's just in case there's a problem)
4. You hobbies and interests
5. What kind of dolls you collect
6. Your favorite artists
7. Any Secret or Special Sisters you have had in the past.

NOW for the unpleasant part in which you do receive a grade. You must answer YES to each of the following statements to be accepted into this program.

1. I am over the age of 18, and if not, I am willing to send by mail my parent/guardian consent for my participation.

2. I understand that I must give the sister that I care for at least 2 gifts per year. Her birthday must be one of them. Her favorite holiday or Winter holiday should be the other.

3. There is no recommended price. I understand that giving should be from the heart and what a person can reasonably afford given their financial circumstances.

4. I understand that the Birthday/Holiday gifts meeting the two gift per year requirement must be new and unused.

5. I understand that if for some reason I am unable to follow through on my secret sister obligations I will let the administrator know as quickly as possible so that a new sister can be assigned.

6. I understand that failure to follow through on the secret sister obligations may result in public exposure of my name on Dollfan and a refusal to allow participation in other gift exchange programming.

7. I understand that this is a program of giving to others. All reasonable efforts will be made to find a sister that will watch over me as well but there are no guarantees and the administrator doesn't have a stick big enough to reach out and make everyone do what they are supposed to do even though she wishes she did.
