Yesterday my daughter came home and said they had a giving tree at her school, she's in 7th grade. so I said great, grab an ornament and we'll go shopping.
Then she tells me that her teacher said she would rather all of the students just bring in cash and let her shop for the tree. Huh? Isn't the whole point of the giving tree to get the kids to go out and do something good for their community?
So she goes on to tell me that one of the requested gifts is a north face jacket and her teacher knows where she can get one for a good price. Which is great, because the odds of one family getting this child a north face is fairly low.....but IDK, something just doesn;t sit right with me. I don't like the idea of just sending in money. And then what about the rest of the tree?
If the teacher wanted to get this cild a north facem hwy doesn't she see if other teacher want to go in on this gift?
Make someone happy today, mind your own business.
