Stearns High School Girls Soccer
Last year I saw our high school cheerleaders standing on corners asking for donations for their team. I was upset. Why? Because a teachable opportunity was lost. Instead of teaching these girls to earn the money, they sent them out to hold out their buckets and expect to be paid. In retrospect there was a lesson, however; entitlement serves no positive purpose in life. I disagree with this kind of fundraising. I've bought lots of cookies, wrapping paper, calendars, pizzas & raffle tickets over the years and was happy to do it.
