I'd sign up as a sender too! And since we are talking about a small, it isn't that expensive to send (I live in Europe).

I love this idea too! Everyone needs a little pick me up now and then when things are going rough. I've got a lot on my plate as well but since you're thinking of sending smalls, I would love to be a part of this.

I agree with sending a thank you letter/note, etc...just to keep close to the swapping rules. Also love the idea of care package. Also, if the receiver wants to remain anon, have the sender or mod post pictures for them.

What a great idea.  I have been having a rough few months myself and I know some other craftsters who are having a rough time too.   Instead of posting a wish list (cause I would feel weird asking people to send me specific stuff) we could do something along these lines http://lesliesartandsew.blogspot.com/2012/08/hope-heart-kits.html
It could be a real swap where people sign up to be either senders or receivers or both, like the birthday swaps, but instead of lists everyone gets assigned to send like 3 hearts to 3 different people.  If someone is just a sender then they should get a thank you note back back.

Does that make sense?

Great idea, but i'm not sure how many folks here would come forward and actually say the are so down they want a pick me up. The past year leading up to my mother's passing was pretty much the worst year ever but I don't think I would have ever come out and said I wanted someone to send me something to cheer me up. What do you think of anonymous nominations of people who deserve a little something to help them through a rough time?

I think this is a great idea, could be set up a long the lines of the swap angel.

The person can post they are feeling blue or down or whatever, or another person can post for them looking for a feel good package.

I think those that wish to be senders can be put on a list and as the need comes they can be called up to send out the good energy.

well and wonderment

I would be willing help out in anyway i could
