Here is the board link.
You can download the form there or copy and paste below.
You can also send it to me via private message on Facebook (if you are on Facebook) but Facebook Is NOT Needed to Participate! Its just more convenient for some.

2. Your Real Name
3. Your Mailing Address

5. Phone # Where You Can Be Reached By Me (Note: This information in # 5 stays with me and does NOT go out to your Secret Santa. The phone number does not have to be a home phone number.)
6. Another Email that CAN be shared with your Secret Santa/Recipient, as needed. If necessary, please get a web-based account (like Yahoo! or Hotmail or Gmail or Mail.Com) for this purpose. (And Please check your contact emails starting on the 27th.) Your Secret Santa/Recipient must have a way of contacting you directly on or after the 27th. If there are technical reasons (computer blew up, for example) why this is not feasible, please contact me to discuss this issue one-on-one.
7. Anything folks should NOT send (i.e., human or cat allergies, dietary restrictions, etc.)?
To help your Secret Santa pick something just right for you, here are some more detailed questions to get the ball rolling.
Please note that this information is strictly voluntary and you're free to answer as much or as little as you want (or not at all), but many Secret Santas like selecting gifts that are specific to the recipient and I am often asked by Secret Santas to write recipients back asking for additional information. So, if you could please fill out any information that you do not have a problem sharing up front, it would be a big help and time-saver.
Please also keep in mind that the information provided are suggestions only and are not intended to stifle or hinder a Secret Santa's creativity or gift- buying or gift-making choices. (Besides, it really is the thought that counts!)
***Even answering only A-F would be a big help to most Secret Santas.***
