I have collected $120 from local business owners for a fundraiser for my daughter's school. Places I mainly patron; an italian bakery, a jewish deli and my nail place. Later this week I will hit up my hair salon and maybe the local Publix. Their business will be advertised on the program so it's cheap advertisement. It's for a silent auction/dinner that her preschool holds annually. All the proceeds go the school. I've been getting better on my spiel. lol

Any ideas of who else or what type of places I should go to?

Oh, and I"m going to give a playpen that was never even taken out of the box as I just didn't have room in my house. Finally found a worthy cause for it.

Business, even small mom and pop places are very generous. The fact that the government makes out business people to be greedy is unfair.
