In the past we used to get something useful or at least collectible - things like pens, badges (aka "pins" in America), etc. I've got a small collection of badges from old Guide Dog donations and another of badges of the Thunderbirds TV show vehicles (before the useless movie) from some other charity. My brother used to buy the small teddy bears to support the rescue helicopter, with each year's bear being different (one year a pilot, next a doctor, etc.).
They probably do get more money per sale from the simpler product which is a googd thing, but it's disappointing and less likely to attract people and therefore less sales which is a bad thing.
