    Smile can indirect object be a thing?

    some verbs, such as give, send, bring, requires indirect and direct object.right? my question is can indirect object be a thing?
    for example,

    I gave the proposal my full support. Does it make sense? as far as I know the indirect object should be people, such as
    i have him my full support. what is your opinion?

    Re: can indirect object be a thing?

    Yes, an indirect object can be a thing. Your sentence is perfect English.

    I (subject) took (verb) my work (direct object) home (indirect object).

    We do it all the time
