My bigger kids just finished their latest school fundraiser-- a Read-A-Thon!
I was actually kind of excited for this one, because reading is totally doable, no one was selling lame over-priced junk, and all the money actually goes to the school instead of some little fraction.
We did warn people, though-- think carefully before you give them a "per minute" pledge.
The example/suggestion was 10 cents per minute.
No big deal, right?
Until you start doing the math....
That's a dollar every 10 minutes.
If anyone had gone that route, here's what they would have owed my kids:
That's right, my kids read 720, 1320, and 1980 minutes respectively.
In like 2 or 3 weeks.
Because hey, they're my children. ;)
