The School, children, and parents all benefit from the fundraisers.
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. A sense of pride is given to the beneficiaries of the funds raised and feel as if they worked for it this is because it does involve selling.
It is important for the children, parents, and teachers to have teamwork for them to be able to work together and achieve their goal.
