SAFETY ISSUES RELATED TO SCHOOL FUNDRAISERS
March 8, 2014
Custom Fundraising Solutions, with its successful mattress fundraiser, has helped many school groups and organizations in their efforts to raise money. By offering a successful alternative to traditional school fundraisers, Custom Fundraising Solutions, provides an important service for students and their families.
Many families dread school fundraiser time. Often, students try to raise money by selling products such as candy and magazines door to door. Relatives may feel pressure to purchase a product they don’t need, or that they wouldn’t purchase if it weren’t for the fundraising campaign. Since students may be assigned quotas to meet, family members may feel that they have no choice but to help the student sell as much as possible.
Additionally, they may worry about the safety of the student while he or she tries to sell the product, particularly if the student goes door to door. Groups such as the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children have expressed concern about the potential dangers of this practice. Fortunately, in recent years, more attention has been paid to the pitfalls of door-to-door sales, and alternatives to traditional fundraisers have emerged.
