I waited for the first week of December to get my plant. The first week of December came and went. Then the second week came and week. And then the third. Winter break had started and I never got my plant.
I contacted the lady who was in charge of the fundraisers. She forwarded me to the lady who was handling this specific fundraiser. My envelope was never received. She suggested that I check with the teacher.
I checked with the teacher. She doesn't remember seeing the envelope and it's not in the classroom now. She suggested that I check with my son.
My son insists that he handed it in.
It's gone. No poinsettia this year. And no $15.
$15 Lesson Learned. Do not send cash in an envelope to school.
Just a note here, I do not believe there was any wrong doing by any of the teachers, staff or the fundraising committee. I know how things get lost and turn up 6 months later when they clean out for summer. I also wonder who else was watching that envelope since it was clearly marked on the outside how many plants were ordered and how much money was inside.
