My Purpose

From January 1 through December 31, 2012, I am writing a daily blog that chronicles a white elephant exchange of 366 gifts (remember 2012 is a leap year!) amongst my friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, and strangers.  Everyone's welcome! 

Why am I writing this blog?
I thought it would be fun to see all my friends this year and to make some new ones along the way.  I also think it's fun when people give and exchange gifts, especially white elephant gifts.

How does this work?
I am the facilitator for the gift exchange.  I got the exchange started by giving out an giftcard on January 1.  I get to keep the gift that someone gives me on December 31.  In between, I am acting as the conduit for people who don't know each other to exchange gifts.  

What kinds of gifts are exchanged?
This is a no pressure gift exchange.  In the true tradition of white elephant exchanges, gifts were humorous.  But you can give whatever you want!    It can be something you have around the house, something you purchase from the store--whatever.  There is NO expectation of a dollar value.  I'm starting with $25 to just to get things rolling.
