Please bear in mind that postage is separate and that the budget needs to cover a Christmas ornament and small spiritual gift when you vote. Voting closes on Sunday 11th November. Please vote for ALL budgets you'd be happy with.

Those of us who want to participate but dont have huge budgets...can we combine the gifts or just do one or the other instead of buying two things?

It depends on if there's anyone else who'd be happy to buy/receive one or the other really. When we discussed this initially, people were interested in sending an ornament and a small spiritual gift so that's what I've stuck with.

I was only going to have one budget and one set of rules to keep things straightforward tbh, as between my boards I'm organising four exchanges and that's complex enough!

If we end up with a higher budget but a fair few have voted for the lower, I'll review and possibly have two tiers of budget / arrangements but I can't promise, depends on how the votes go. I'll check with all those signed up that they still want to go ahead once the budget etc is finalised.

I didn't include a $5 option because realistically these days that hardly covers anything.

btw if we get a tie we'll go with the lowest of the tied choices to be as accessible as possible to everybody.

Does that mean you cant go over $20? Im hesitant because I voted 20 but then thought wait cant it be between 10-20 dollars? So my question so not to confuse you is, does that mean you have to spend $20 or no more than $20 but at least $10-$15...?

Budget means you spend as close to the budget as you can. A little over or under is fine. Which budget it is depends what the majority vote for.

I don't like to say $10-$20 (or similar) because it's not really fair if someone buys a $20 gift and then receives a $10 gift if you see what I mean.

Having run tons of exchanges fixed budget tends to be better and fairer.
