    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 MEDIUM Flat Rate box of goodies (just a tad over $11.00 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.
    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. (edited to add) 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 88 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

    Sounds great! I'm in please! I wouldn't worry about putting great stuff in. Seems like interesting stuff is more important then dollar value for this type of thing.

    My bad! I think I was only searching through the "Passaround" thread and it totally went by me to do a search. :(

    :D I don't see why not. :) I think it'll cost like $13.00 to ship the flat rate box up there. We'll see how this goes. :D

    No, there's no other passaround thread. Gnarly was just being awesome (and gnarly). :)

    I'm in on this! Put me on the list.
    I think the biggest problem we will have is that Gnarly wants to use the "large" size box :p

    Moo, you want to make this a "pics encouraged" thread where the recipient posts a photo of what he or she received?

    Ooooh! Ooooh! I'm in!!! :D

    If you do that, limit it to, say, only two items. That way we can maintain some mystery about what all's in the box. ;)

    Yeah. I wanted pictures up from each recipient, but no pictures of whatever they put in for the next person to keep it a surprise. :)

    ALRIGHT. I'd finally gotten home from work enough to compile a list of participants in this passaround. :)

    Blackheart has graciously accepted to start the box off. The first recipient will be kertap75.

    :) Will you two please exchange mailing information via PM, please? :D

    Have fun! I look forward to seeing these boxes. :)
