I also received an unsolicited "Express Package" in my mail. It contained a flashlight/mirror, carefully enclosed in a styrofoam wrapper. Having received this unsolicited "gift", I am requested to make a donation to the NFB at 20 East Wells Street in Baltimore, MD 21230-4998.

I received an unsolicited "Express Package" in my PO Box, containing an excellent wind-up flashlight (one minute of cranking gives you ten minutes of light) carefully enclosed in a styrofoam wrapper. With this "gift", I am requested to make a donation to the NFB at 20 East Wells street in Baltimore, MD 21230-4998.

If I return it, I have to pay postage, but I don't like this way f raising money. What to do?
