Can I tell you how much I HATED selling crap door-to-door, and how badly I wished we could just sell those Helen Grace Eggs for every holiday fundraiser? I hated selling that crap.
So, the years have gone by and now I have children of my own who attend schools who have fundraisers. When we were living in the states the boys brought home the same terrible catalogues from school every year. I must admit, I caved and bought some terrible smelling candles and ugly wrapping paper to support the school. I do want to support their education; that's really important to Roel and I. Well, it looks like this year, it's gonna be a WHOLE lot easier to support the kids and their school.
This year...my eight year old and six year old are selling...Champagne. No, I'm not kidding! Champagne! Can you believe it? I swear, I almost fell over when I read that! There's even a selection. You have your choice between the 'Duc de Foix Cava Brut', 'Duc de Foix Semi-secco', 'Duc de foix Cava Rosado', and of course the 'Kidibull Kinderchampagne' because the kids need to drink too! Some-blog I'll have to tell you about the table beer kids drink here in Belgium, but thats a WHOLE different story.
So, this year it doesn't look like the kids are going have to have work too hard getting folks to participate in the fund raiser. I think America could really learn something here....but then again, nothing beats those Helen Grace Eggs; I guess the U.S. and Belgium have something they can learn form each other;-)
