The 2010 Christmas Wish List

I snagged this from hawk_soaring's list found here.

Step One

Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Note: If you want to send me something that requires more info from me, either comment or PM me and I'll let you know. If you want to keep it anonymous to me, contact azraelz_angel via PM and she'll let you know how to do it.

Hi, I came across your Christmas list via singer_s_lament lj.... also, I'm a big fan of your fic (though I don't always get the chance to comment, sorry 'bout that).

Anyway, I'd love to send you a cool postcard - it's all I can really do at the moment.

Do your parents need stuff to hang on the walls? One of my hobbies is photography (nothing fancy... yet!) but I have some stuff that works pretty well as 'artwork'. If you don't mind doing the printing/framing, I can email you photos. Just let me know if you're interested and what kinds of things your folks might want to look at (landscape? streetscape? iconic images of famous cities? close-up of flowers? tall ship under sail?).

That could be neat for the guest bedroom (one guest room is my niece's 'princess room').

Hmm... good question on what. My parents are kind of country, so some type of non-city landscape or ocean type might be neat.

Is your email address still the same? I sent you a couple of options but haven't heard back from you - no worries if you're just busy (November seems to be trying to kill everyone!), just wanted to make sure you got 'em.

Thanks so much for the pictures! I got tied up at work and then was over at my parents new place and they don't have internet yet (should this week).

I'll show them to my mom over Thanksgiving. I was telling her about them. I particular like the ships.

Found your Xmas list through DJMicheals.

- Can send you a postcard of Bilbao and/or the Basque Country where I live

- I regulate donate to 2 charities and sponsor a child in India and from time to time donate to Doctors without Frontiers

- I can check out see if I can find something nice and lightweight for your parents' house (can't promise - as living abroad conditions what I can send due to postage)

Yay for the donations! I don't have regular charities I donate to, but I usually do things with donations to local charities when they are out and about.

I sent you a PM with other info. :-)
