What makes you think that this would be a good way to raise money, and that anyone here would help you?

This thread is clearly SPAM, and I have reported it for closure.

Why would a 7th grader be raising money?

Surely your school would have a Board or P&C that is responsible for raising money?

Cake stall, raffle, fundraising chocolates (In Australia, Cadbury's offer Freddo Frogs that you buy off them for $0.50, and sell for $1. I would imagine other confectionary companies in the US will offer something similar. This can be a very lucrative fundraiser, as everyone knows the fundraiser boxes and will buy a few. Everyone likes choccy).

Also, quiz night, fun run. The possibilities are endless.

Online solicitations, however, will never work.

If your school is short of funds, you need to contact your city's mayor, your state governor, the school board, your Senator or House of Representatives congressman, etc. Posting at a Linux technical forum and soliciting money is a totally ineffective way to try to resolve a local school funding issue.

Unfortunately this type of thread falls under advertising and is being closed. LQ is not a place to raise money, there are plenty of other ways to achieve such things, just not here.
