School in the U.S. have lots of fundraisers for all kinds of reasons. Learn more about it in this episode. Slow Dialog: 1:17 Explanation: 3:23 Fast Dialog: 17:18 Valerie: What’s this? A.J.: It’s a note from Rachel’s school. It’s about the next fundraiser. Valerie: Oh no, not another one. What is it this time – a raffle, car wash, or spaghetti dinner? A.J.: It’s none of those things. It’s a combination bake sale and craft sale. Parents are supposed to donate baked goods and handmade items. Valerie: This is crazy. Every month there’s something else. Last month, it was a candy sale. I had to hit up everybody at work, and that’s on the tail of raffle tickets the month before. It’s like this every year. A.J.: I know, we already donated a lot of things to the rummage sale last semester and gift certificates for the silent auction two months ago. With two kids in two different schools, I feel like we never get a breather. Valerie: I know and there’s more. Brian’s school is asking parents to buy a brick that will be part of a new school building and our names will be engraved on it. A.J.: You’re kidding, right? One more fundraiser and my name will get engraved, all right – on my tombstone! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
