I found this project on the journal of the great and talented
and I thought: what a nice idea! So I decided I'll do it too!
Here goes. Sorry for the blatant copypasting from her journal by the way...
I welcome you this year - 2014 - to the project "Elf Christmas Wishes". You might have seen Secret Santa entries on DA or something else Christmas themed having to do with some sort of exchange. This one is different though. It's all about... making a list. And see what happens. INSTRUCTIONS:
Make a post in your dA journal and make sure that you include these instructions. Copypasting is simple. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple gifts ("I'd love a picture or icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for this 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. They can be tangible things or even intangible, abstract things like happiness or health for yourself or significant others.
If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), 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.
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. I recommend using the same journal title so as to make the search easier. 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 for example you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift card you won't use, or anything -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.
The list: here's mine. I've changed item 5) as of Wednesday 5, november 2014 to include something I just thought of.
