Just blgged a 2GB (yes Gigabyte) datastick from a company. It came with Lotus Notes on it as it's supposed to be used instead of laptops where possible. I asked for a testing sample as we may be looking to purchase quite a few and they sent me one.
Never got past our buyer but i didn't tell them that.

I am having my very first 'big' birthday party for my gorgeous daughter in April..she will be 4 & I want to make it as special as possible for her.
She suffers from Cerebral palsy & epilepsy...her CP affects her mobility & she is totally dependant on my help. She is a determined little princess who makes me proud every day..she is such a special little girl who deserves the best I can possibly give her.
I have hired out the hall in the leisure centre for a softplay party, she is a popular little lady & we have almost 30 children coming....Anyway, the point of this post:
Being a single mum, (unable to work due to her disability) it is hard to be able to give her the party she deserves.
I sent polite emails to Cadburys, Walkers crisps, Kingsmill, Nestle, crayola etc. I explained all about my daughter s disability & her party & asked whether they would be kind enough to help/donate anything towards with her party.
I have received responses from almost all of them......knockback after knock back....very impersonal responses saying NO!! Which is a little disappointing really as I wasn't blagging...I was genuinely asking them for their help, with them being huge companies I had hoped that they would be able to help.
If you are going to write to various companies, dont get your hopes up!
If people are just going to write for the sake of free stuff....you may be taking dontations that other people may need..no offence meant by that-I am all for free stuff!! Just not at the cost of others.
