Drew B's take on tech PR

Yep Neville, I've got the "50 invites" box too.

Neville Hobson

So what to do with them all, Drew, is the question. I know there's a programme in the US to donate email address to the military for the troops in Iraq. Is there something similar in the UK, do you know? Nothing here in the Netherlands.

Karl Swedberg

Neville, I found 50 more Gmail invites in my account as well. Although I immediately offered them up on my blog to anyone who happens by, I like your idea of donating them to a charity better. I'll keep checking back here to see if anyone has noted a worthy recipient. Do you have a link to the programme in the US that you mentioned?

Oddly, it almost feels like a burden to have so many Gmail accounts to give away.

Marc Orchant


There's still quite a bit of pent-up demand, at least based on what I'm seeing on my blogs. I'm giving them out as fast as I can reply to requests (at last count, I've handed out 30 this morning).


Neville Hobson

Marc, I saw someone's post this afternoon saying they had 150 invitations listed!

Karl, the place to go is Gmail4Troops (catchy name!):


However, I just looked at the site - and they're not taking Gmail donations any more! Looks like they've been flooded with donations of email addresses.

But there's another one linked from there:


Neville Hobson

And here's another resource, Karl. I just received an email from Simon Bellwood telling me about isnoop.net's Gmail invite spooler -


Check out their stats from a link on the home page - rocketed skywards since yesterday.


There is also a popular forum that donates 1,000 gmail invitations daily!
send them to them

Neville Hobson

Thanks for that, Matt. I just took a look at that forum. Wow! Invitations everywhere.

Interesting that there seem to be literally thousands of Gmail invites on offer yet few takers.

Mary M. Pisciotti

I'd like to receive a GMail invitation. Thanks. The blogspot is just a site for interchange emotions. Bye.

Neville Hobson

Invitation on its way, Mary!


hi please send me a gmail invitation.

Alison Phelps

Alison Phelps

I've been waiting forever to get a Gmail account; for anyone who's drowning in excess, please! Send a Gmail invitation my way! You'll make my day!

Gracias! Aviva

Neville Hobson

Hi everyone, your requests are in, invitations will come to you as soon as I can get a minute to do them all. I'm going to need an assistanrt soon to help me out with this stuff... ;)

mohamed rafiudeen

i neeed more gmail invitations can u give


Neville, if you still have any invitations I'd like one. SHould I then be given invitations once I have an account, I'll give them to you so you can distribute them if you like.


Neville Hobson

Ok, everyone, all invitations on their way.

Some people are asking for more than one. That's ok, but I need to have individual email addresses. That's the way Google's invitation system works - one invite goes to one specific email address.


hey, can someone send me an invitation plzzz? lexu_2003@yahoo.com send it here...10x a lot



Could someone invite me to Gmail, please.


John Butler

Hi. Would you have a G mail invitation?
Thanks so much if you do.
