Here we are, Halloween is coming soon and the big retail stores already have Christmas decor out for sale. That means registration is open for Cardsphere's Third Annual Secret Santa!

Previous years have been lots of fun, and this year promises to be the biggest yet!

Here's how it works:

Once confirmed to be an active Cardsphere user, you'll receive a message from Cardsphere's own Secret Santa via the Cardsphere messaging system with a link to another user's profile, a brief description of their interests, and their mailing address. You send them out something nice in the mail. Someone else draws your profile and does the same thing for you.

Here are the rules:

By signing up, you agree that you will send to anyone with whom you've been paired. Cardsphere is an international community, and if you get matched with someone in another country, your shipping costs will be higher.

The gift you send should be worth at least $15.00 USD, and no more than $20.00 USD. We're just trying to make people smile, so including a personal note or something special or unique is encouraged.

You must mail your gift with adequate time to arrive by December 25th. Typically domestic mail takes 2-3 weeks during the holiday season, and international mail is around 5 weeks. If you want to pay extra for expedited mail, this is allowed.

Important! As with any mail, there is always a risk of lost packages. Cardsphere sees a loss rate of under 0.6%, but it still happens. This event is about the giving, not the receiving, so don't get upset if your package somehow gets lost. Just be happy that you made someone happy. Cardsphere cannot be held responsible for any undelivered packages.

To join, complete this form and Cardsphere's own Secret Santa will contact you via the Cardsphere messaging system. Registration closes November 15th!

If you have any further questions, contact Santa by messaging him here.

Can't wait to see what everyone sends out, cheers!
