Can I send you something?
Sure. Send me something in the mail:
Christopher L. Jorgensen
PO Box 546
Ames, IA 50010
Are there other ways to contact you?
Sort of? Head over to the Contact page and go nuts. Mail is the best way to make sure I answer.
What do you plan to do with the things people send?
I intend to give a lot of it away again. That's going to be part of the site. This is not a contest or give away site. It's not a review site. The main purpose of asking4stuff.com is to see what I can get companies to send me just for the asking, but after that I'm going to need to find homes for these things. I don't want stuff to go to waste. I'll keep some stuff. I'll sell some stuff. I'll donate some stuff. Each post will be about the company or person and the item received with a final disposition of the item.
Are you the internet equivalent of a pan-handler?
I hope the people and companies involved get something out of this as well: additional eyes pointed at their products or services, a link to their site, a new and happy customer. I don't expect everyone that contributes will come out ahead, but some should.
How do you decide who to write?
If I find an address....
Can I get in on this action?
Maybe some day. I may open up this idea to others at some point, and if you already know me, and are interested, by all means, reach out. You'll need a PO Box.
Aren't you afraid others will steal this idea?
No. Go ahead. If you think you can get stuff from companies or individuals go for it. You should even start a website. I'll probably end up being one of your greatest fans.
