Question:Have you heard of Greenraising?

Link

This is a great site that offers fundraising items for schools that are also environmentally sound. No more candles, candy bars or giant tubs of cookie dough! Now kids and parents can sell items that reinforce the message of doing good for the environment (think reusable lunch bags, green home products and fair trade coffee.)

Answer:

Wow, that is fantastic. I always thought the tubs of cookie dough and chocolate selling went against the whole be healthy thing. How do you teach kids in Health class about eating and then say, here, sell this stuff to fundraise!
