Can there ever be too much charity?

I never thought I'd say this, but absolutely. My daughter's middle school has an event a week--bringing in canned food, stuffed animals, etc. We're constantly helping 'someone.' Charity is great, but it must be focused.

No, charity in it's nature is about the person giving. Not the receiving. Schools that sell stuff are not being charitable; they are just unimaginative.

Kids shouldn't be made to feel left out when their families can't participate in all the fundraising activities, and this happens a lot in our school. The fact is schools should not feel they have to turn to charity in order to provide the basics.

The reason the funding raising is needed is because the leadership lacked vision and sound fundamental planning. That said, if you want to believe in this school the leadership must change. Who wants to invest in a school that can't manage money.

With 4 girls, I can't participate in fundraisers for each of them.Every time I turn around, they are bringing home another catalog of 'stuff' to sell. I refuse to bother friends/family with these overpriced things, so my kids feel left out.

They could be doing much more to earn money by collecting more then just BoxTops & Soup Labels. There are Capri Sun Drink Pouches, Used cell phones, laptops, empty ink/toner cartridges. They should look at TerraCycling.com What is PTA REALLY doing?
