I did.  We got 200 thermometers.  However, after all of the emails, letters home, robo calls, I only gave 100 away - including staff.  Very good thermometer though.

Did the people who took it use it?  Do you have any sense of why people who didn't use it didn't want it?  Too "big brother-ish?"

I can't say why parents didn't want a free $20 thermometer.  It had been my goal for many years to be able to give parents a thermometer and to say I was totally floored and a little disappointed is not an exaggeration.  The parents and staff that did get theirs, loved them.

I participated and loved it! The families and staff had to “pre order” via text so only families that wanted one received them. The response and feedback has been very positive.
