What is the big deal?
Candy should be sold for fundraisers at school. Why? Many clubs need money for transportation at school. Some parts of the school need to be fixed. It would also be brilliant to have the extra money. The recession has caused millions of dollars to be cut and candy would be a magnificent way to raise money. Why are students not able to sell candy at school?
Drama club and band are two examples of clubs that desperately need more money. The most efficient way to raise this money is through the sale of candy. There are tons of buyers of candy at Sparkman High School. This should be taken advantage of and candy sales should be allowed. If the student body could sell this fundraiser candy it could have the money in no time. What is the state waiting for?
A healthier solution, some say, is a fruit stand to sell fruit, but this idea has its faults as well. There is not a wide array of customers for fruit. The fruit would only sell at certain times of day, like in the morning or before lunch. The fruit stand would end up costing more or about the same as fundraiser candy. The fruit could spoil and replacement fruit costs money.
The school needs money and a fruit stand or prohibiting candy sales will not get us anywhere. Fundraiser candy helped raise fistfuls of money in the past and it could help out once again. After all, what is the big deal? The school has the collateral to succeed and the candy lovers are ecstatic because they got that pack of starburst they were craving.
