    Default If you buy the items people sell for fundraising... (pink ribbon pins etc)

    I am trying to get my daughter a iPad, she has Autism and I have heard good things about them for autistic children. I'm a single mum so saving for one is really hard!

    I found a site where I can buy a fundraising kit and sell Autism pins/teddies.

    So I am wondering if you usually buy the other items would you buy the autism ones? Each item is $10-

    the kit will cost me $100 so I'm trying to see if people would actually buy them before I buy the kit.

    If i was buying off a friend then yes i would donate $10 - not expecting anything in return.
    But it depends on the charity. I spend $10 - $20 each starlight day but will only very rarely support other causes - but im thinking of those boxes in woolies etc.

    This is the same things as those box's but I'd have to walk around trying to sell them. I hate getting harassed to buy things, but I'm getting desperate.

    I guess for me (as a stranger who doesn't know you) I would want to see id .. and proof that the money was going to a charity purpose ..
    Can I ask which site are you getting the stuff from? I've never heard of parents raising money this way .. and I'd love to share the info

    I wouldn't personally unless I knew the person selling it because I don't have $10 to spare most of the time.

    I would think that fundraising with $1 chocolates would be better because most people are happy to buy a chocolate or 3 when they are so cheap not sure if that's something you can do though

    Occasionally I do but normally its at the doctors (breast cancer pens etc.) or at the check out when I have long enough to look at it, think about it and then decide to donate.
    I saw ones that were like friendship bracelets and were $2 each...but I forget what it was for. I bought DS a bunch because he loves funky friendship bracelets. Guess it depends what the item is and where it is.

    Like PP said though, Id buy someone off a friend for sure.

    ETA: $10 sounds like a bit much for me. Ida rather buy 5 bracelets for $10 than 1 item. Most Id spend on a single item would be $5.

    i'm certainly more likely to given $1 or $2 .. rather than $10

    I'd happily by a ribbon/ pen/ bracelet etc for that money .. but $10 is a little bit steep unless you know who its for etc ..
