Bear doesn't want to do this. But he doesn't want to be the only child in the class not doing it. I would rather give the money directly to school. However I am about to dig out coloured paper and Christmas stickers and cobble together something that will eventually be sent off to doting relatives.
It isn't even Halloween yet.
I don't know who is more reluctant - bear or me. Still, I suppose it is a life lesson. Sometimes you just have to get on with it.
