Do any other mums feel like every week there is some sort of fundraiser, event or bake sale at their children’s school? If so, and if you simply don’t have the time or the talent to help, then this note is for you.
Every week I get a letter in my child’s homework folder. School bake sale . School fundraiser. Parent meeting. Gold coin donation. Walkathon. Colour run. Volunteers needed.
As much as I love helping out when I can, the truth is, I work five days a week, I am hopeless at baking and my weekends are usually reserved for cleaning the house and watching Netflix, not barbecuing sausages or selling tickets for the school fete.
One school in Texas understands. And thus, when they sent home this refreshingly honest and hilarious form for an “alternative fundraiser,” the letter instantly went viral over social media.
The form gives time-poor parents the option of donating money outright, with perfectly accurate descriptions for each amount.
