soc_puppet: [Homestuck] God tier "Heart" themed Dreamsheep (Dokidoki)
So, first things first: Today is my biiiiiirthdaaaaaaaay :)

Second, I posted my wish list to, uh, [livejournal.com profile] wish_list on Friday. You can feel free to take a look at it and contemplate doing something in regards to one or more of the wishes, or you can ignore it completely, whatever. (I will note that the first three wishes are charitable (and the fifth may also apply), and the fourth and fifth wishes may in fact directly benefit anyone who "fulfills" them. Just FYI.)

For anyone unfamiliar with the Wish List thing, here's the basic premise:

Step One

- Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ/DW/Tumblr/wev. The post should contain your list of 10 mumblemumble holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on 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.

- If you wish for real possible things, 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.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ/DW/Tumblr/wev, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.


Step Two

- Surf around your f-list/reading list (or friend’s friends, or just random journals, or Tumblr tags, or [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes/[livejournal.com profile] wish_list, or what-have-you) to see who has posted their list. 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 you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--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.


I've had a lot of fun participating in this in the past, and I hope that some of you may enjoy participating in the future! Now go think about your own wishes and maybe making a post and also possibly perhaps about filling other people's wishes and so forth. Whee!
