Do you remember back when they used to have us (the school kids) go door-to-door with our fundraiser catalogs selling calendars, candy, and stationary? I thought the system had finally come to its senses and QUIT with the fundraisers. No, my kids just weren't old enough to do them yet. So, Joy came home last week with her fundraiser catalog, just about to wet herself with excitement. She decided we needed to buy EVERYTHING in the catalog. And, John should really take it to the job fair he was going to be attending the next day. When I explained what a job fair was, she decided instead of trying to sell stuff to people, he should just take it along for good luck. And, they tell you that the kids should not go door-to-door selling. They suggest that you just take it to work and leave it sitting on a breakroom table. Well, as it would get eaten within 30 seconds on the table in my breakroom (most people call it the kitchen table) we decided this was not the best alternative. Joy then decided that we should take it to all our friends. Of course, all our friends have kids doing the EXACT SAME fundraiser. Again, not a good option. So, we decided to compromise; I promised Joy that I would do a post on my blog about her fundraiser. That way, she is making an effort, and it is costing me as little agony or frustration as possible. If you want to help Joy on her path to fundraiser glory, go to: NW Fundraising and have fun. And, if you want to just be grateful you don't have worry about this, count your many blessings and laugh at me. However, if you choose option A, her orders must be completed by Tuesday, October 14th.
