At the price one or two LEDs are all I am likely to spring for.  


However..I think instead of donating cans of food I think I might put a CFB
in the box.  They have been going for $1 each around here.  Same as a can of
Tuna pretty much.  Many people do not yet use them. It would help them out
and their electric bill and the carbon.

Standard fluorescents make me feel like it's three in the morning and I
ought to be in bed. Too much time under them puts me in a terrible mood and
can bring on headaches.

"Daylight" fluorescents are a lot better -- at least some of them are, I
haven't tried them all; but did find some I can use at home. I haven't tried
LED's except in a flashlight, which is a different situation and doesn't let
me judge whether I could stand them for general lighting.

People's reactions to types of light vary drastically. Giving these as gifts
is a good idea; but unless you already know the tolerance of the particular
people I'd give one or two bulbs per household, with a note suggesting they
try them and let you know whether they'd like to have more. Or, if there are
various types, you could make up a gift box with one or two bulbs each of
each type.
