6 years old and already having to work. She has a job. Her current position? Fundraising for new PE balls, ropes, and equipment for her classroom.
What is her role? To bring home a packet filled with cruddy, overpriced stuff for her family and neighbors to purchase. If anyone needs a 23 dollar soy candle, jumbo magnetic clips, or a copy of Black Enterprise magazine...give her a call. Are you aching to enjoy the Old World Taste of an authentic 12 oz. beef summer sausage? She's got you covered (if you have $12.50 and can wait a few weeks). The book has amaryllis kits, cell phone holders, milk balls, dryer balls, and more. Order now while supplies last!
What's in it for her (besides a new PE ball, rope, and equipment)? If she sells $1 worth of stuff, she gets an "amazing effort" bracelet. Sweet. If she only sold one dollar of stuff, seems like it should say "lackluster effort" instead. $100 bucks of stuff nets her a 11inch stretchy centipede. Now you're talking! And,
the prizes only get better. The TOP SELLER in each grade wins a "Big Cheese" Hamburger Hat!!!!! It's true. I don't joke about Hamburger Hats, esp. those covered with cheese.
The good news is "together everyone achieves more (TEAM)". There is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in "salad crisper", which you can buy for $7.50.
The order book coversheet had words like honesty, respect, loyalty, kindness, caring, and fairness. So I end with this......
Peanut Brittle. 7.50
A Vanilla Diffuser. 13.50
Helping my daughter learn honesty, respect, loyalty, kindness, caring and fairness by buying a copy of People en Espanol. Priceless.
Until next time, buh bye.
