First of all, be relieved. I’m not asking for money 😉
I just wanted to find out if any of you feel super awkward asking people for money when you fundraise to go on missions’ trips. I know, I know, it’s a great cause for someone to donate to, and it’s not like you’re using it on yourself.
But I still feel weird about it! Especially because I generally ask a lot of people (friends and acquaintances) and if I haven’t been able to talk or see them for awhile I feel like it’s weird to ask for money out of the blue. Like, “hello, the only reason I want to contact you is for your money.”
I always wish I could just pay for everything myself, but that’s kind of unpractical, especially if I want to go on more than one 😛 So anyone else have this problem? How did you get past it?
