This is my first year as chair for our Family Fun Night silent auction and the posted list will be an incredible resource. Thank you so much for posting it!

a few of them came back as undeliverable, but not all.

I went a little further with the list. I went to those recording company sites to confirm they were on the staff. some of the recording companies list the staff names, but not the email addresses. A lot of them move around and change jobs, i'm guessing, the list was a little outdated.

Has anyone signed up with the Good360 website? I was wondering if anyone has had any success with it.

I am having luck with the direct sales companies. I go on their websites and find a local person then tell them I'm organizing a silent auction - and I also tell them we are planning a mom's expo (which is true). So they help me and later hopefully we will pay it back. So today I got a bag of items from party lite and I'm expecting stella and dot and pampered chef too.

Also we've asked some parents for unwanted new items - someone's junk is another persons treasure. Today i got a bag full of art projects that had never been used. It will make a rainy day basket for someone.

Will home vendor companies like pampered chef, scentsy, thirtyone etc. donate (on the corporate level) or do you have to go through one someone locally who sells it?

I think some have corporate programs (like 31) but I went to the sales person directly. 31 corporate turned me down and I've bought a lot from them this year. A lot of their charities are women related not necessarily children. I think for the sales person it could help them because you can put their catalog and cards on the display. My friend who sells thirty one probably has a ton of stuff she bought for $5 that she could donate if I can convince her - her daughter goes to our school too!
