Fundraising

My two children go to Catholic school.  Even though the younger boy only goes for two half days, it is still Catholic school, which for the unitiated means fundraising.  The three year old's school so far has only tried to get me to sell coupon books at $30 a pop.  Why anyone would pay for coupons, I don't know.  Regardless, the six year old's school sent home on Friday a nearly identical book for $25.  If I was in the market for coupon books, this would be a no brainer.  However, if this was the first fundraiser, I probably would just send the $25 and be done with it.  Unfortunately, this book follows a walk-a-thon, a chocolate catalog sale, and cheesecake.  Not only that, his flag football team is selling $50 worth of raffle tickets per parent.  (Since I haven't paid nearly enough towards that sport yet.)  I think it is only reasonable to expect me to do only so much selling with the same month.  Today is the 11th.  He has been in school since September 8 which makes four fundraisers in one month's time.  I think that is a bit much.  Of course, no one is asking me....

There are plenty of reasons why crowdfunding platforms have fees and are not free or cheap. First and foremost – they have their expenses as well, especially bigger platforms.But coverrme.com is a crowdfunding site that is free and no charged at all.
