Shalach manos? Don't you mean mishloach manos? –  Adam Mosheh Mar 5 '12 at 1:56
    
Do you mind if I fix it and write "mishloach manos"? –  Hacham Gabriel Mar 5 '12 at 4:15

@AdamMosheh I think Shaloch Manos is a yiddish-ism. I'm not holding in yiddish grammar, but I think it is a common way to refer to them. –  Double AA Mar 7 '12 at 6:55

@AdamMosheh I think it's acceptable the way it is. Also the tag has the more "correct" spelling. As a Yiddishism, as Double AA pointed out, I don't think it needs correcting. We don't need every question and answer to have the same linguistic and editing standards (whose would we use, anyway?) so long as they are understood by all. –  Seth J Mar 7 '12 at 14:42

@SethJ In fact, a diversity of ways of expressing a question, including different translations and transliterations of key terms, makes our content base stronger, since other people who would express the question or terms the same way will be more likely to find something here by searching. –  Isaac Moses Mar 15 '12 at 15:06

A Sephardi approach here from Reb Ovdiah Yosef where he allows it.

Is the Individual Mitzvah Fulfilled If A Mishloach Manot Is Collectively Given By A Group?

From Aish.com:

May two or more people send jointly?

Yes, but the package should contain the correct quantity for each of the senders.

See there for some other caveats and conditions.
