Psssst...... Got any old CDs?

If you have a spare moment, Click on Blogs and take a look at mine.

Usually we don't support charity-oriented threads, but we are making a rare exception in this case, because we think it's an opportunity to do some real good without asking for any money. The magazine is going to donate all the spare CDs we can rake up (and that's probably a few) to this deserving cause, and we're hoping you can help.

Give generously if you can.

Very many thanks.

P.S. please don't post anything related to other charities in this thread - we know there are many deserving causes, but we are making this a one-off appeal. I hope you'll understand.

Why not also ask Tiscali, AOL and the others that bundle CDs in magazines or their distributors? They might have a load of old stock.

Not a bad idea.

Yep, and I'm going to put up a notice at work to try and drum up a few more.

and yes, we'll take any type of CD - even old PCA coverdisks!

There's no deadline, but the sooner the disks and phones arrive at our offices the sooner we can get them off to the charity on your behalf.

I have two autistic sons, so I know what you mean.

Will have a dig around and send off, asap.
