I always help support the local fundraisers for the universities, our children bring home the products that they’re selling, and I’ll usually buy a couple of boxes of chocolate and donate the candy to my church and the local children’s hospital. Our kid was particularly glad about this fundraiser because of some of the prizes available for selling a certain amount of fundraiser products, and to be honest, I thought he wanted to go for the top prize which was a cool looking dirt bike! I could imagine him tearing it up in the backwoods where the youngsters always go biking. I remember telling him that if he won that dirtbike, he better wear a helmet and be careful, but he just smiled and did his thing. I also told him that the chocolate he had on hand, he better keep it in the a/c of our home so none of the bars were melting. He kept them in his room nearby where his window A/C equipment was finally working. I would have told him to put the bars in the freezer, my freezer was packed with food so that couldn’t be done. He sold several chocolate bars and other treats, I thought for sure he would win the first prize. Actually though, he ended up getting 3rd place which still qualified him for the bronze price, which was a UV air cleaner. It was really a certainly nice one plus he later told us that this was the prize he was shooting for. He didn’t actually appreciate the dirtbike or the second prize smart thermostat. He wanted that UV air cleaner to help improve our air quality at home and keep us safe from dangerous pathogens. What a thoughtful kid he has turned out to be.

The HVAC prizes were a smart thermostat and air purifier
