Mozilla, with their campus rep program seems to have a set box that they
send to groups and schools.  They send this box when the group is organized
and when they throw an event.  We've received two of these boxen here at the
office, they contain ~8 shirts, 25 buttons, 25 wristbands, 50+ sticker
packs, 30 lanyards.

That might be a little much for OLPC to try to arrange all at once. For
those of you who have gotten swag from organizations, what have you received
and was it enough/too much?
