    I HATE FUNDRAISERS! My daughter brought home the cookie dough & wrapping paper two weeks ago.

    I told her I would take it to work. It sat in the house until the deadline.

    I told her I would give her $5.00 and she can buy the stupid stuffed animal she wanted to win and have money left over.

    @Jennifer, LOL. I think we need a fundraiser revolution. But secretly, I do so love the cookie dough.

    Fundraisers- more like homework/ torture for parents. So far, my kindergartner has sold, cookie dough, raffle tickets, had a school bake sale (8 dozen cupcakes made by mio thank you very much) and an Autum Festival. It is ONLY OCTOBER! I know there are at least 2 more in the works from the school itself. I also get hit up by my neighbors, which yes, they all sell the same stuff, with little variation from sports teams, music programs ,JR ROTC, middle school and a few private school students. I really think these fundraisers should come with a permission slip home first and a waiver. Also, Boy Scout and Girl Scout need to have disclaimer attached to the scouts. I am supportive and do buy items, and yes, i am now known as the neighborhood softie. They literally line up on my steps and drive way with order forms in hand. Good thing it is all tax deductable !

    @Gina, Omigod. I cannot believe that they expect all of that. So far, I’ve sponsored a walkathon or two, and had the cookie and wrapping paper kids come by (honestly, I wanted to turn around, stick out my butt and say, “look! I can barely fit through doors as it is, who thinks I NEED more cookie dough?”). Fortunately, Junior’s main fundraiser for his sport won’t be until spring. God help us when the girl scouts start their cookie sales, tho, because Harry is a sucker for them and I end up with ten boxes of thin mints in the freezer :) I am not the neighborhood softie, Harry is.

    I really love gathering the members of my group and inquiring each a person of them to come back up which has a bunch of new fundraising ideas. Teamwork is basically crucial in the fundraising campaign.
