> Your proposal states that "Givebox" is the name of such a facility in
and links to its Facebook page.  "Givebox" is therefore a trademark, and you
know it's a trademark, so should not be used as a tag.  There are legal
implications to trademarks and the organization would be likely to take
legal action against OSM if we used it as a tag.

It's also not a name that conveys to at least one British English speaker
what it is.  I would assume a box of some sort, not a room in a building.
