    Depend on what kit I get I can make $500 or $600 back, that coves the cost of the kit and buys the iPad

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

    Mmmm I don't buy those pins, badges or pens. It's not that I don't want to give to charity but they're just junk that I don't need.

    Is there something else you could do, like sell things on eBay? I sell secondhand clothes on eBay not always things of my own, but things I have sourced elsewhere like op shops and garage sales. That gives as a little extra income while I'm on mat leave.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    I don't usually spend more then $5- on these type of things either.
    But I know the other fundraising sell things for $10- so people must buy them or they wouldn't keep making them?

    I've sold everything we don't use and I'm not good at finding things to make a profit off.

    If youe child is funded in a state school you may be eligible to use some money for an ipad as it is an educational tool. Have you spoken to the school about it?

    I don't understand how this can be done? When fundraising, I thought all the profits went to the charity?

    Anyhow, I'd spend $5

    By the way, are you in Adelaide, or know anyone who is?

    I guess here the charity would be the child, its meant to pay for therapy or iPads, apps, sensory items. Raising a special needs child is very expensive.

    I'm in Sydney.
