I can't even begin to tell you how much help this board has been as a starting point. I went off the original list and from there I began to think of so many other companies to request donations from. While we are still waiting on most of our donations to come in I wanted to add two we received yes from. Please keep in mind we are a non profit from Southern California so I believe both of these will only except requests from local organizations.

Aquarium of the Pacific
Send donation letter on official letterhead with a self addressed stamped envelop to:
Estella Smith
Aquarium of the Pacific
100 Aquarium Way
Long Beach, CA 90802

Laugh Factory
Attn: Elisabeth Aguilar
Donation Coordinator
8001 W. Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90046

I just wanted to post a list of places who have declined for everyone.

Knotts Berry Farm - They said they are now only donating to those in the area.
Southcenter Mall
Seattle Glass Blowing Studio
Canlis Restaurant
Stanley & Seaforts Restaurant
Snoqualmie Casino
Limited Brands

Most of the companies said they were no longer accepting donation requests due to the overwhelming amount they've received this year. Just a heads up :)

Thanks so much for sharing your list of successes with so many new companies. Could you please provide your method of contact? Many do not have donation process information on their websites (other than the norm GMCR, disney, etc). Are you just emailing them or do you know people at these companies?

Re: Hotel stays - Try to find Inns or Hotels that are family owned, they are more apt to give you a stay. If you know someone that works in the hotel & they know the manager, that helps too. Hope this helps you out. (in the search area put family owned inns/ hotels and see what pops up for you). :o)
