leaves are changing color, autumn nip is in the air, pumpkins and Halloween stuff in the stores...school fundraisers!
Ben came home with stars in his eyes and a smile on his face...and an envelope full of school fundraiser information. "Mom! I'm going to get a Nintendo Wii! All I have to do is sell some stuff!" Yep, he can win the coveted Nintendo Wii by selling 139 items. Oops! How do you convince your excited 8 year old that the probability of us selling 139 items is not very good?
Seeing the light in his eyes dim after bursting his bubble, I guiltily promised him that we would try our best, after all, it does benefit his school!
So, if you'd like to help support Whittier Elementary School in Frederick, MD and help a disillusioned little boy follow his dream of owning a Wii, go shopping! They actually have some cute stuff as fundraiser items go. The link is http://www.shoplavenders.com Make sure you enter Ben's ID# 255117 so that he will get credit.
Look at this face!
