CLOSED: Oppem's International Birthday RABCK Group 2018

Oppem started a wonderful birthday RABCK thread in 2012 and in her memory each year we continued with great success and it is now time to sign up for the 2018 Birthday Group.

Once the signup list closes ****NO**** new players will be added so don't delay.
Everyone, new & old has to email me with details if they wish to be included.

If you want to join this INTERNATIONAL Birthday RABCK -

1. Current players just pm me or post here if you are in or out. I have the address list saved. (Unless your address has changed/you are moving(see #3)

2. New players pm me your name, birthday, and current address. INTERNATIONAL players please tell me your complete address including city, territory/province/federal state, country. A lot of people order books from Better World Books/Thrift Books for the group and they need city/state and province/federal state for more accurate shipping.

3. If you are planning to move this coming year(2018) make a note in your pm so I can note it on the master list to check before sending.

4.******** It would be very nice for you to put on your profile page things that you like and wouldn't mind getting for your birthday-for example postcards new or used, bookmarks, BC labels, stickers, chocolate, tea, calendars, used stamps, things you collect, or types of books you would be ok with even though they are not on your wishlist. Also take a few minutes to update your wishlist as you may be getting several books from it and a big selection is a plus. It really helps to find something to send if you don't happen to have a wishlist book available.*******

Once you have the list for 2018 start sending birthday cards and/or books/presents. (I'll pm you the address list when the thread closes for the year) it's always awesome to find a card or present from another country in your mailbox on your birthday!

Everyone should participate as much as they can by sending something to as many people on the birthday list as possible. Many members might only send birthday cards or you can send gifts/books to all, it's up to each person what they send. The 2017 participation has been awesome with the majority of Birthday's lasting a month or more with gifts coming in!

PLEASE -*** ONLY JOIN THIS RABCK IF YOU ARE PREPARED TO SEND GIFTS/ BOOKS / CARDS TO MOST PEOPLE ON THE LIST AND ALSO WHEN YOU RECEIVED A BOOK / CARD / GIFT PLEASE THANK THE KIND PERSON WHO SENT YOU SOMETHING AND POST ON THE THANK YOU PAGE SO EVERYONE CAN SHARE IN THE FUN. ***. I have kept track of people who are signed up but don't seem to want to send out items. This is NOT the place to sign up for free gifts if you are not going to send out somethings as well.

The signup's will close no later than November 20th

Oh, that must be an oversight, isn't it? It wouldn't be fair for bookstogive to do all the work and not let us send her goodies!

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
