2011-2012 school year: want a candle

As public schools start to feel the financial pinch, more and more I find myself deflecting students who want me to buy magazine subscriptions and candy bars. Fundraising has been around in schools forever- I remember selling wrapping paper and chocolates when I was in elementary school. You can think I’m an ogre for not wanting to participate but man… if I bought candy and candles from every student who gave me the hard sell, I’d be broke!

The exception is, of course, Girl Scout Cookies. I will sell you my youngest child for a couple of boxes of delicious Tagalongs.
