Dd's preschool (she's in pre-k) is part of a school that goes to grade 12. That means that she is involved in school-wide projects and... you guessed it... fund raisers for charity.<br><br>
This one is for St. Jude's and it involves doing this "trike-a-thon" at school. I filled out the permission slip for it so she can participate, but I feel really funny asking for donations. She's obviously too young to even understand what is going on... she just wants to ride the tricycle tomorrow!<br><br>
Is it okay to just write a check for the donation (enough for her to get the T-shirt) or is this taboo? I don't even feel right asking close friends and family to donate. I know this is just the beginning of many years of this, but at such a young age it seems rather ridiculous, YKWIM?

I've done it...many times. All they want is to raise money, they don't care how many people you get it from. I hope she enjoys the trike-a-thon!

I do it all the time, the only donations they get are ours. the only one they do here is the MS read-a-thon. They do other fundraisers but it's bake sales or raffles, costs less than $1.

I do not ask other people for money for school fundraisers of any type. If I think it's a worthy cause and want to donate, I do. Otherwise, into the trash it goes.

I don't ask others to donate. Sometimes, I will ask grandparents but that is it.

Thanks all. I asked my mom and my best friend and that's it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
