 What?!?!?!?  They want your child to beg money from family, friends, and neighbors and the donors get nothing in exchange for the cash that they fork over?  I don't think so!  I'm with you, bring on the cookie dough.  I really don't mind selling food items for fund raisers because everyone eats and the food isn't junking up your house.

My oldest had a fundraiser like that for the basketball team! They were each required to raise 200$ in donations in order to be on the team. I had never heard of schools having kids do fundraisers like that before! I would rather buy cookie dough too! I actually miss the days when they sold candy bars for 1$! They used to sell 500-600$ worth of candy bars each time, and now my six year old brings home these catalogs with stupid stuff in them and crazy prices, like 10$ for a microwave plate cover and 10$ for a roll of wrapping paper! Nobody wants that stuff! He only sold like 25$ worth of stuff, and that was from my mom because she felt sorry for him! Lol!

And even walkathons or something where people sponsor them are better than just asking for money!

this includes a three on three tourney for basketball too. I agree the catalogs of junk are annoying.

Yup. they want them to beg. the money is going to the general pto fund for "various" projects.

We were told we could write a check for $20 directly instead of doing fundraisers. WORTH IT.
