Another year of spreadsheets and carols. <swirls ice in brandy>
You wonderful lot you, gorn and done it again.<sniff>

It's always lovely for the donator to know their parcel has arrived, so if you've had a Christmas Appeal gift this year and you'd like to use your unique MNcode to pop on this thread to say thank you, now's your chance.

We'd like to start you all off by being the first to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who's taken part. You're all brilliant!

If anyone has any questions about anything to do with the Mumsnet Christmas Appeal then do please email Santa.Claus@mumsnet.com.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you whoever nominated me, very very touched

May I just ask a question here, Sandy? Looking at some of the above posts, does this mean that you've already given the recipients their 'codes' this year? If so, that's really good!

My recipient's code is Xmas2013MNXXXX

And my donors code is Xmas2013SantaAXXXX

And obviously the last four digits match.

What I'm trying to say is, do the recipients already know their code number so they can keep an eye out for the donor posting on the thread about when it was sent?

Hi FruOla,
Bang on! Sorry, we should have said. <makes note for next year>

FruOla Thu 28-Nov-13 16:24:53

"Bang on!" - This means, yes, you did give the recipients their codes this year?!

"<makes note for next year>" - this means you didn't - or you mean you haven't told us? confused

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to whoever nominated me and to the lovely MNer who sent me a much appreciated Costa gift card. It's been a mad few weeks as I have been caring for a friend and this couldn't have been more well chosen. So looking forward to a few lovely luxury coffees and I will think of whoever was kind enough to do this for me smile

Nothing to see
Have some wine forget you saw me.

A huge heartfelt thank you to whoever nominated me. I've had a tough year - some real high points, and some really tough low points and am truly touched that someone here nominated me to receive a gift. Thank you so much whoever you are.

I received the gift yesterday but as I was out, Royal Mail left a calling card and it's being redelivered on Saturday. I can't wait to see it.

I've donated some money to save the children and GOS, and also donated a couple extra bags of shopping to my local food bank by ways of passing the generosity on to someone else.

Thank you again for the gift, so kind of you smile

The woman in front of me in the queue at the PO looked at my parcel & smiled - I think she was another MNetter!
