I'm entering this cool project I read about on TazioBettin
's journal some time ago, it's called Elf Christmas Wishlist 2014
and it was created by lovely
This event is similar to the Secret Santas you've seen around dA, but... you just need to make a list of your wishes and share it with the rest of the community!
Once you wrote down your list and submitted it, please do not forget to link it back to saniika
on her original journal, so that people can find your list easily and maybe... help you with one, or more, of your wishes:
Elf Christmas Wishlist 2014 Welcome!
Welcome to the project "Elf Christmas Wishes" - 2014. This one is differently themed project than Secret Santa's on DA you see around usually. I promote this project for several years now and get to see more people participating every time and being happy and fulfilled they did so.
Its all about... making a list. And see what will happen. For my part - I look for other lists and grant wishes every year. Each year I did this, I heard about more people being visited by an Elf/Elves.
Year 2014 starts quite early in comparison to the past ones - which should give more time to people to plan and prepare. I look forward to see your wishlists and stories about your experiences! Interested? Please scroll down!
How to make the list is easy:
If you want to grant anyone's wish, please be sure to contact them privately so that they can update their list and say that the wish was granted by someone, to avoid doubles! INSTRUCTIONS:Step 1.
Make a post in your dA journal and make sure that you include these instructions. Copypasting is simple. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple gifts ("I'd love a picture or icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for this DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want. They can be tangible things or even intangible, abstract things like happiness or health for yourself or significant others.
If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.Step 2.
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. I recommend using the same journal title so as to make the search easier. And now here's the important part:
If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if for example you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift card you won't use, or anything -do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.Step 3.
