Re: How do you decline family fundraisers?
Those kind most people don't mind. I would ask for people to save stuff like that. I have before- when I was a preschool teacher and we needed used dryer sheets for crafts- not exactly a charity, but most people don't mind saving stuff they would be throwing away anyway. Its all the stuff they want you to buy- candy, wrapping paper, books- that annoy me, even as a parent who is expected to sell them. Thats the main reason we don't participate in them.

But we don't participate in most of them.
