The lesson taught to children when a fundraiser occurs in a school is that if you want something you have to work for it. Some of the reasons why fundraisers occur is to support in sports, cheerleaders, academic trips or even when they want to expand a structure. The fundraisers benefit the school, children, and the parents.
Selling of books or delicious foods in a fundraiser helps the children to be more confident and with time they become assertive of what they are speaking of. When children participate in fundraisers they learn how to be confident, and this is helpful for the children who would want to be speakers or leaders in future. How to control the pitch when talking to someone is a skill learnt by the children and gets better as time goes by. Since the fundraisers involves selling of items, it does give the beneficiaries of the funds that were raised a sense of pride this because with funds that were offered they actually worked for it.
For the parents, children, and teachers to attain their goal in a fundraiser, they have to work together and have good teamwork. Knowing that not all the time that things have to go your way helps the children to learn to listen to other people’s ideas. Knowing teamwork at a tender age they will easily work with other people when they are grown. The importance of helping out is taught to the children in fundraisers and also they learn that you can help out even at a tender age you just have to have the capability.
Children in fundraisers should know the importance of a community where they get to know that a school is part of a community the same with the church and hospital which do come together for the greater good. With the help of the community the goals of the school can be achieved and this is learned through fundraisers.
