Step 5:  Ask the recipients questions about the items on the list.   

Ask the recipients these questions about each item (except cash) that you plan to distribute:  (1) Do you believe that you have a special claim to this item?  For example, has it been promised to you?  (2) If you received this item, would you want to sell it or keep it? 

The answers to question (2) should not be revealed to any of the recipients.
