Some other DDC's have previously used a "fund" in the event that one of the partners flakes on their girl.

Basically, each girl participating would contribute $1 or so to this "fund" and then the organizer can buy a gift for the left out girl on the entire group's behalf. We can either do the $1 contribution at sign ups (I have paypal and could hold the money in my PayPal account), or we can do it just in the event that someone flakes. If we went with option #1 and no one flakes (which I'm hoping is the case!), I would just send the money back to each person

Please vote (Aug DDC members only)!

Im so torn. I would contribute if that was the winning vote.. but I would like to think that if we did not have a flake fund people would be less likely to flake. I think I will just not vote and go with whichever wins on this one.

We had someone send a gift in my last DDC that was very poorly done and feel apart when it was washed and everyone felt bad so we secretly (so as not to upset the sender) put money together after the fact and got her a new gift. Maybe we could always put the money together after the fact if there was a flake? Flaking is often why I opt out but I really want to be in it this time!!

I totally see the point, however, I'd like to think our group is so great we won't have any flaking out

I agree! I so hope this is something we don't run into! I think our group of ladies is pretty awesome and we should be okay!

I was flaked on in my January DDC with my twins. I definitely think we should have a flake fund.
