    Default Isn´t any in Europe?

    I wonder why Europeans doesn´t seem to be interested in card exchanges?
    I wonder because I have put up a christmas card exchange and only people from the US has joined in.

    Don't forget me!!!
    I live in Europe and I have registered.

    I have to say though that the Europeans (myself included) haven't been posting much at all in the last few months.

    Just had a look at the exchange from last year - there were only 2 Europeans in it too, Bournecrazy and myself.
    It ended up with I think about 30 people all together - I could be wrong though.

    Well, sending a card out of Denmark will cost me $3/each just for a stamp, so for me, it's a matter of cost. I think it's a nice idea though.

    I'm with Muse on this one - Lovely idea but budget is tight

    Hi Muse!
    I know that the cost is very high, also here in Sweden it`s 12sek =1,79 usd for one card but you can choose to send to a part of the list and not the hole list.

    We don't send any christmas or new year's cards; we send an email to everyone and donate money to charity.

    I agree, non US participants end up paying a lot more. That is the main reason I am not participating this year.
