We’ve just finalised the dates for NZ Secret Santa 2015. YUS! *
Registration will run for two weeks from Tuesday, 10 November to Tuesday 24 November. Unlike last year, there will be no extensions so make sure you get in while it’s open. Once you’ve signed yourself up, make sure you spread the word using #nzsecretsanta on Twitter and getting your Twitter community involved.
Once you’re registered, there’s nothing you need to do until we email you with who you’ll be playing Secret Santa for. That should be coming in hot on the afternoon of Wednesday, 25 November. Then you can start the REALLY fun part.
In the meantime, help us by spreading the word and getting as many people to sign up as you can. Of course, we’d love it if they were active on Twitter and all about the giving. Ho ho ho.
As we mentioned last week, this year we’re getting behind the NZ Red Cross and giving them as much help as we can as part of the community spirit behind NZ Secret Santa.
This means that all of the gifts destined for a ‘Bad Santa’ will be donated to the Red Cross in a special morning tea in the week leading up to Christmas. We’re also planning to set up a Give a Little campaign to contribute a monetary donation, too. Full details of this and a couple of other cool things are coming up soon.
Questions? Confused? Want to chat?
We’re always happy to help when we can – drop us a line on Twitter (@nzsecretsanta) or via email if you’d prefer it remain private: firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Last year a number of people were frustrated when we didn’t open registrations at midnight (or 00:01). We don’t have a set time in place, but we promise that we’ll tweet about it when it’s all go. 🙂
