~ love.  it's what we do here. ~

Dear *gift of jewels* participants,

All week, I could barely contain myself, waiting for this very moment.  the moment when we collectively get to sprinkle the jewels!  whoo-hoo...

I want to thank you all for participating in this international pen-pal project.  By now, each of you should have received a personal email from me with the contact information for the secret intended recipient of your jewel.  If you don't receive your email by Sunday, please feel free to notify me at necessaryroom@gmail.com.

Over 70 symbols of love are being sent from loving souls in 12 different countries across the globe and one of them will soon land in your mailbox.  Remember, no one else knows who or where their jewel is coming from so please do not spill the beans.  You can rest assured that the person you are sending your jewel to is definitely not the person sending yours because no two people have each other.  ;)  Please feel free to send your jewel anonymously if you so desire, or you may include your return mailing address.  either way is love.

All *gift of jewels* should be mailed on or before September 11, 2010, the Ethiopian New Year.

One World. One People. One Love.
