I think Google Docs is the best idea so far.
How about that:
Everyone who wants to participate sends me an e-mail to [email protected]
I then create a Google Doc and invite you to join (since I only send it to your e-mail-addresses, whatever you put into that document stays between us).
In the Document, we will add our birthdays, sorted by month.
It MIGHT look like the attached image (oops, I may have accidentally created it already ...)

And, whenever there's a birthday, everyone who is in the mood to send a card, just sends one. The recipient won't have any idea who will send a card ;D
Or if you're thinking "Hey, I'm in the mood to send a card, let's see if there's an upcoming birthday!" that's cool, too.

What do you think?
PS: If I have tge time, I might also create a calendar and make it available to you.

It's just a regular document that lies on the Google server. :) I edited my post with a screenshot.

this is such a great idea.  I just participated in summer exchange and that was so fun! 

Another side question:  should email addresses be included in the google doc?  just for communication purposes in case this goes on for a while (years?) we would want to make sure that people were still interested in receiving cards and that they had not moved, etc...in case they were for some reason not active on the forum...?  thinking long term here...

off to send an email!

That's a good idea Carmela.. maybe we can set the google doc to 'expire' after a year? And maybe a section for usernames and real names? I got so confused at the summer exchange at who each person is and what their username was lol!

Dunno if you can set them to expire, I'll check!
I added a username thingie anyway, because I got very confused with real names and usernames, too.
