Don't get me wrong...
I supported my kids' schools and tried to take part in as many fundraisers as I could.
Ok, so a lot of times I just bought the stuff myself. A few times, I asked neighbors and co-workers, but I always felt guilty about it, because they have kids (and fundraisers!) too.
Wrapping paper. Cookie Dough. Christmas wreaths.
THIS is actually something I've heard parents say... couldn't I just give you some money and not have to do all this?
Because some of us aren't good at baking or selling or any of that. It's not that we don't love our kids or their schools. I'm just not bake sale material. (My kids will vouch for that one.)
Check out the "Opt Out" Fundraiser at Auburn High School!
This Mom was so glad to find someone who gets it... read what she has to say---
Even if your childs school doesn't explicitly send home a notice that you can "Opt Out" and just donate to the cause of the Fundraiser, if you call and ask it is always an option. I don't like sending my kid out to sell overpriced junk and junk food.— Kristi Talmadge (I-CT) (@KristiTalmadge) August 29, 2018
