I have friends that have children that go to private/religious schools, they do not have fund raisers like this, that is why they pay private fees it's included like camps etc.
I hate the door to door sales that shcools use to raise money, I hate the raffle tickets too. I don't take them I volunteer in other ways.

As you say it's hard to sell over priced goods no matter how good the cause is.

On the other hand we/ or school occassionally does a pre order pie or lamington(cakes) and they usually sell well. Pre order and pre pay.

Thank heaven they do not do this in high school and this is my last year or last months in primary !! Yippee!
