  • I don't do it at all. I HATE fundraising. I would rather just donate money and be done with it.

  • Fortunately, we don't do too much of that. She sells GS cookies & that's about it. She might sell cookie dough for her softball team in the Spring, but that's it. The ones the school does is usually lame, like magazines.  She does the asking & calling.  The exception would be when my husb. takes the order sheet for the cookies to work.

  • We bought something from them and that was that. We didn't really have family around or a bunch of friends to ask and anyhow- they had their own kids who were doing the same thing so...

  • He asks family but I don't push it. I don't like the fundraisers the school does.

  • I've bought a few overpriced items I didn't especially want from my stepdaughter and stepson and a few kids at church over the years. But I can't stand it that kids have to peddle junk for the schools, and I don't plan to put much effort into the fundraisers when my daughter gets to that age. I'd rather just donate money.
