Oh! That's good to know. Not that I really care though. I, personally, wouldn't make a stink about it but I will remember those kidlets and remember not to give them money next time.

I think the parents should be ultimately responsible for their kids getting the goodies to you. If your kid was selling something you would make sure it got to people, right? The school should make them pay it back!!

I called the school and the lady was really helpful and sounded understanding. She listed off 2 boys names and asked if it was them (I have no idea) which leads me to believe some of their orders had troubles. She's going to follow up and see if she can pinpoint our order since they have some of the vouchers are still there. Such a simple painless thing, you'd think the mom running the fundraiser would be responsible enough to handle it.

So hopefully they'll track down our voucher and restore my faith in my DDs potential elementary school. I will be very clear in expressing my displeasure in the mom's handling of the situation either way. Thank you for the ideas... I wasn't sure what to do. Someone else suggested filing a police report, but that seems a little overkill.
That's good to know that at least the school cares! Good sign, IMO!

If it were MY kid, I would make sure it was done right... & ALL goods were delivered... I'd feel the school's reputation, my reputation, & my kids' reputations were on the line.... and that I'd better get it all handled correctly... & if something slipped through, because mistakes do happen (although at this point you aren't sure it was a mistake, but you don't know that it was not... poorly handled, yes, absolutely!), I would MAKE it right... & if MY child was one who messed up, I'd pay for it myself & have a long talk w/my DC about honesty, integrity, responsibility, etc!
