    I think the order should be left as is unless you or jericanman want to change your places - 1st come first served and all that.

    Yes, of course. Just say for example, someone lives near me, I would be willing to go after them to save shipping etc. But UK shipping cost the same to everywhere so should not be to much a problem.

    From the other thread,


    I'd been wanting to do this for a while but kinda forgot because at the time I didn't think I had awesome things to donate to the starting box.
    1. Somebody starts out stuffing a small Flat Rate box of goodies (just a tad over $5.00 for shipping in CONUS; we can set up separate a separate thread for UK if necessary, or the last recipient/next sender can note whether or not they're willing to send around the world)
    2. Send it around (I can create a GDoc spreadsheet with names of those interested and I'm willing to help keep track and give you reminders as necessary).
    3. Each recipient will take a few items that they're interested in and (honor code here!) replace them with items of equal or greater value for the next recipient.
    4. Every box becomes its own surprise.
    5. Everybody has fun!
    6. Don't forget to post photos of your gifts in this thread! (Keep your additions a secret, though. :p)
    7. To keep things rolling, upon receipt of the package, you will have 3 business days to ship out your package to the next person. Because of this, the list of participants can be found on Post 4 so that you may contact the next person in time to do so.
    I might need some help with this! Let me know if you can help to kickstart this or help with the GDoc to keep it running. :D

    P.S. I still don't think I have the greatest toys to put into the box, but if somebody else does, I can send what little I have for the starter box and we can work from there (or vice-versa). :) PM me so we can make a box! :D

    Wait listers will be taken now and as they come in, I will add you to the list according to time stamp.

    ** As always, mods, if not allowed, please lock/hide thread, PM me, and that's the end of that. :)

    Best wishes! Time for work. :D

    In regards to post 12, I would prefer that the box be assembled by a volunteer in the UK, as:
    1. If the box were to be assembled in the US, there may be some items that turn out to be illegal in the UK.
    2. It saves our members time, money, and frustration from having to deal with customs.
    3. My main priority at this time lies in another direction. Not only do I have projects to take care of here on the forum (not just the giveaways and contests - those kind of moderate themselves; there are other things), I also have a SAR team to take care of, a new job, and schoolwork that needs attention before anything else. So trying to find items that are UK legal or looking for someone to volunteer is lower on my priority list at this time. Don't get me wrong; I want the UK box to make its way as well. But it's a matter of when I can make time for it in my schedule.
    If anybody can step up and help take charge of this (UK) project, I would very much appreciate it.

    I am more than happy too. I have no major plans till september so will be free, I am willing to pay the shipping to the first person etc, I know the laws we must stick to etc.

    I have also get a few bits to start the box off with :D

    Thank you very much. :) I know you stated that in a private conversation, but I wanted other members to understand where I was coming from as well.
