Justin Posted November 18, 2021 Report Share Posted November 18, 2021 HO! HO! HO!Atari I/O Secret Santa 2021! $30 Max spend on gifts, $20 Min spend Please wrap your presents & make this fun! Include a thoughtful card or note! Presents must pertain to classic video games or retro culture Sign up by Thanksgiving, November 25th! Package must arrive by Wednesday, December 22, 2021 HO! HO! HO! It's time for our 7th Annual Atari I/O Secret Santa! If you'd like to be part of Secret Santa this year please respond below saying that you'd like to participate! Please include a link to your Want List in your post or a list of game systems you collect for along with any other wishes that your Santa can help make come true. Time is short to sign up! The last day to sign up is Thanksgiving, November 25th, 2021! This will give all of us time enough to take advantage of Black Friday Deals! Names will be impartially selected and we'll send you a PM with your Secret Santa information no later than Friday, November 26th, 2021. Have your wishlist ready to go! You might also want to include a list of general interests (Atari 2600, NES, Action Figures, Comics, Mini consoles, a new watch). Remember, you might not get something super specific on your list if it's hard to find. Offering broader suggestions may help inspire your Secret Santa with a good idea! We love classic video games and retro items, but finding vintage items in new condition is next to impossible! Therefore, gift items can be purchased USED or REFURBISHED so long as they cost around $30. Your Secret Santa package can be comprised of more than one gift, again - so long as the total value is around $30 and you've put together a gift package that you feel would be magical! (i.e. Please don't send a box of "junk", nobody wants a lump of coal in their stocking!) Let's make this special! The presents you send should be gift wrapped. It would be okay to send an item without gift wrapping if you were ordering from an Atari vendor, Amazon or eBay and wanted to have it shipped directly to your Secret Santa's house to avoid paying twice for shipping. We encourage you to gift wrap your presents whenever possible! We love creating magical holiday memories for our friends in the Forums. We're like a small town here, a warm community of friends with shared interests. For some of us who may have to sacrifice to make a special Christmas for our families, this may end up being the only presents we get to open. If you'd like to participate in Secret Santa this year but may not have the means, please send me a PM and we will try to find a way to help. If you're unable to participate in Secret Santa this year, please consider a donation to a deserving charity of your choice. Here are a few of our favorite charities, hand-picked by Atari I/O Members over the past several years: From @RickR — A donation to the Oregon Food Bank From @Atari Creep — A donation to Walk to End Alzheimer's From @StormSurge — A donation to StormSurge's "Extra Life" Campaign for the Children's Miracle Network From @Justin — A donation to the South Carolina Federation Center of the Blind Sign up by Thanksgiving, November 25th, 2021! Happy Holidays to All! Gianna and RickR 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
