I ask the G.M. directly for hotel stays to go with dining & entertainment? For instance, we are located in Illinois and I'm putting package for Destin, FL together. I have go cart passes, dining gift cards, dolphin cruise, & a few stores at the outlet mall. The General Manager actually did better than a hotel stay....we ended up with a 2 bedroom condo for 3 nights!

Hi Crusader,

I always send out my emails with as much personal information that I have. For example, I will look up names and titles and direct my emails to specific people/contacts or departments. The idea is to make a personal plea, not a bulk plea sent out to a mass audience. Your results will be better if you personalize your requests.

Good luck to you!

Does anyone have thoughts on businesses that are able to offer donations in a quick turnaround? I know many local businesses can, but I'm speaking more about national/regional businesses that make decisions by store?

I believe walmart/target you can walk into the store, and if they have any GC remaining for the month they will contribute. I think Olive Garden does as well?

As for places in my area that were a 'success' for me:

Seafair passes and pins (hydroplane races)
Seattle Sounders gift pack
Seattle Seahawks gift pack
Seattle International Film Festival passes
Experience Music Project tickets
Woodland Park Zoo tickets

Re: National chains with quick turnarounds

I've had success asking local managers of with Cheesecake Factory, Buca di Beppo, Fogo de Chao, and Safeway/Vons (grocery stores).

Good luck!

Hi Superdeluxe,

For instant/quick turn-around donations, I've had success with most Supermarkets. They have you fill out a quick form and can give you a gift card immediately. If your preferred donation is product, they will call you when it is ready. Other quick turn-around donors are Costco, WalMart, Sam's Club, and Target.

Hope this helps!
