The donating process is pretty easy.

1) Get a tree - 3'-4' is best.

2) I'll let you know when to ship it and to whom. I'll let you know in October after the list is finalized.

3) Include decorations for your tree. Some theme these to the resort, some just use general Christmas decorations. You can also include things like extra lights for the room and extension cord(s). Families often add their own ornament(s), so don't over decorate.

4) Optionally, a gift for the families (such as candy) is often included.

5) The donor will also include an envelope for donations. This will be used to collect funds for the last family to ship the tree back and also to help defray the donor's costs.

Let me know if there are any other questions!

We would love to participate. Myself, DH, DS18 and DD16 will be staying at Kidani from Dec 20th to the 27th. It is our 25th wedding anniversary on the 26th. So we have many things to celebrate this trip.

If you want to participate, include these:

1) Name reservation is under
2) E-mail address
3) DIS name
4) Dates and resort
5) Ages of any children

Thanks! We have plenty of time, but when it comes down to finalizing the list only those with all the important info will be included.

You can PM me or email mrshiny at gmail dot com

Verizon.net users who had trouble getting to the spreadsheet should be OK. On the Google boards there was a report that this cleared up yesterday. Not sure if Google or Berizon fixed it, but you should be good.

If anyone else I don't know about is having trouble getting to the spreadsheet, let me know!

Final assignmenments of donors and who hands off which tree to whom won't happen until the list is closed in October, but I'll keep updating the sheet with how things look up until that time.

One advance planning time for donors - try packing in a box with bright colors on all sides. This can help it stand out in the baggage room when people are looking for it.

Also, the thing that seemed to help most last year was everyone recording the name (and taking a photo if possible) of the person they hand the tree off to at the resort. That's the person who, when no one else can find it, remembers where the tree was placed!

If you don't have a link to the spreadsheet at all, that probably means I don't have your e-mail address, or copied it incorrectly. Please let me know.

Jeff

Still need info for emacek. Contact me please!

Kidani seems the hot place this Christmas - might add a second tree there the way it looks.

yay!

We will be at OKW Dec 30-Jan 4. My son is in the CP so we will be celebrating Christmas with him when we get there. My parents are driving in too so it will be Christmas with them as well. It's ten of us....Me, DH, DS (22 in CP), DD 20, DD 17, DD 14, DS 23 months, DD's boyfriend 20, mom and dad.

I'll send all the info via PM.

Thanks for doing this! I did a Pal Mickey swap a few years ago and remember how much planning it took.

Not to change the subject but there are a lot of "kids" who are away from home for the first time. They will be gone over the holidays. Be extra kind to them when you see them (their name badges say "college program" on it). I can get you all some names and such if you want to share some type of pixie dust their way.
Thanks!
Tracey
