My 8 (yay she finally had a birthday) year old is now at a school where the kids do absolutely no selling-stuff-fund-raising. Instead a couple of times a year the PTA sends home a flyer headed "No Hassle Fundraiser" and the parent is encouraged to make their donation without the irritation/hassle of either buying or selling carp we don't actually want to mess with anyway. It's wonderful and the PTA bank balance is just fine. The parent is encouraged to savour that moment when they sign their check, basking in the sunshine of no door to door selling, or sitting at booths or tables; or the annoyance of your child whining about getting enough "points" to qualify for cheap plastic crap. Other service organizations might seriously consider adopting this model. My 5 year old nephew just did a walkathon for his school! It was actually very cute.6
