Did you ever say how many people finally registered for the project? If you did, I missed it and I was just curious...

Eleven persons registered for the contest :)

I thought it would be more... Well, I guess people are busy this time of year.
Maybe in 2008! :D

eleven....well, that's ok considering there wasn't much time!! It was a great idea, and just that smile you have when you post your "secret present"....I mean, it's going to someone I have never met, and possibly never will!! But, through being on Curefans, I am able to, hopefully, make someone smile... And I eagerly await my "secret present"..not for the material aspect, just that it's coming from a place far away ( i don't know where!!) and that someone has taken the trouble to do it...for me...for melly..... don't care what it is...I will love it.... cos someone has done it....for me.... :smth050

I posted this in the new site this morning, so for some of you it will be a repeat...I haven't gotten my gift, but I did get a lovely PM from my no-longer-secret friend cure4sale thanking me for the gift I sent him -- I'm so glad he got it and that he seems to have enjoyed it. :D

Hey, I sent  home-made cd compilation....I had my husband help me with it. I had originally bought a present but then I decided cure4sale would enjoy a cd more, and  kept the gift for myself. I can assure you it was nothing fancy or expensive, and I'm not expecting anything of the kind from my secret friend. Everyone gives according to their possibilities. And I believe it was specifically agreed that we wouldn't send anything expensive, anyway! So don't worry!  :smth056

I am very happy that my secret friend, Angie.. recieved my little gift!! oh how i spent hours deliberating!! I just got a PM today from angie.. and I am so happy that through this forum, we can have buddies all over the world!!
Thank you David for organising this .. and I'm sure more will register next year ( maybe a bit earlier though!!)
By the way.. there are no scrooges who are involved in this year's secret friend.. remember.. it is the thought that counts!! And that can be VERY difficult deciding on something for someone that you don't know at all!! ( believe me!!)

As David had mentioned earlier in the thread, he actually wrote a letter to his secret friend.. now THAT is something I am totally incapable of doing.. and yet it is a wonderful, personal touch!!  ;)
