The twins' elementary school only does one fundraiser these days, called Run For the Money. Kids ask for donations and then they run. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the school. I much prefer that to buying cookie dough or candy bars, where I buy an overpriced, unwanted item where only a small portion benefits the schoool. The kids raised over $20,000 this year!
In addition to running the kids could hula hoop, jump rope, and get sprayed with color. Next year I think I'll run with them.
