zillion plus fund raisers?
I'm curious how everyone deals with all the fund raisers the kids have going when you have children in multi schools?
Bitty One (DD9) goes to one school, GS7 goes to another district 40 miles away and GS8 yet a different school 60 miles away. I'm being swamped with request for purchases and donations.
So far since mid August between them all there has been Cub Scouts, Choir, Y-kids, the schools in general with 'buy us books', support our sports, 'we need a new playground', and on and on it goes.
My older kids never had all this, maybe one during the school year. I don't mind helping out, especially with Bitty One's school and groups, but Gsons both also expect it.
I guess I got myself into this when I pushed ex DIL to volunteer and get involved. She did, big time. Once DD28 caught wind I was buying/donationing to both DD9 and GS8 she now expects the same everytime GS7 has something.
So how rude would I be if I just handed the 2 GSs a check for like $200 each and told them to spread it out over the year for their fund raisers and keep or donate to somewhere else whatever they 'bought' with my money.
