My Boys will tell you, I am not the type of parent that pushes my children's fundraising sales on my family and friends. I make them do the work.
That being said, I know an amazingly talented thirteen year-old Western performer who is raising funds to be a part of a Celtic Cultures Tour as a Student Ambassador. I have known her since she was five and the mic stand and the buckle she wore were five times her size.
She is miles from her goal but still determined to reach it. They have set up a fundraising page for her and I told her I would help get the word out. They've been hosting bake sales, candle sales, muffin sales. She is determined to Yodel her way across Ireland.
