So far David and I have sent out lots and lots of emails to the companies we decided to ask for information from. Not one of them has replied yet and it's been a month.
David pointed out that a big problem was that not many companies have a direct email for contact. The larger the company the more likely it is to be a contact page.
We have filled these in for a few of the companies more than once and still nothing. I feel sad and frustrated at this as I have also started to do fundraising to go to Malawi in the summer with my school.
