Stuggles of Fundraising

I learned from calling my organization, that many people would love to talk to you. I learned that the people running the charity are so touched that youth are taking interest in it, and wanting to help. I thought the adults would reject high school students trying to help out, but it was the complete opposite. The leaders of the group appreciated the help and wanted to share their knowledge of the organization with the next generation.

Our fundraiser is a Sadie Hawkins Dance at Clairemont High School. We hit quite a few road blocks during the process, and unfortunately our fundraiser is being pushed back to in the next few weeks. I don’t think my group realized how many things could go not in our favor during this process. Many of the hurdles we were faced with was with issues we hadn’t thought about earlier.┬áIt has been a struggle, and we have definitely been frustrated. What I can learn from this experience is to take planning an event more seriously. What I can learn from it personally is that setting up an event takes time and effort from many people, not just myself.
