How did your mother send tzedaka with you when you were in kindergarden and first grade?
Mothers- How do you send tzedaka with your children to school?
I was sent with tzedaka taped to my shirt. Wondering if anyone else had that minhag/ how many other people did/do that.March 11, 2011 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #749547s2021Member
The tzedaka taped to the shirt is a minhag??March 11, 2011 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #749548deiyezoogerMember
we sometimes draw a nice school bus on a “mitzva tzatel” and put pennies for the wheels.March 13, 2011 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #749549candy613Member
well if the kid is really responsible put it in his pocket or something. Otherwise, tape it on the shirt! There’s no way it wont get to the tzedaka box from there!!!

I was in public school for kindergarten (the only year I was in public school) and so I did not have this experience at all.

my students usually come to school with a bunch of pennies at beg of year then when they finish whats intheir little purse thing then they take it home to refill.
in the nursey by my school. they get at the beg of the year a little zipper thing that gets attached to their knapsacks and it says on it mitzvah notes and tzeddakah.March 13, 2011 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #749558ImaofthreeParticipant
Ha ha, wolfish musings, I was also in public school for kindergarten only. When I was older I used to carry my penny for tzaddakah in my shoe.March 13, 2011 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm #749559shlishiMember
wolf – im just curious why you felt it important to let us all know that potent fact?March 14, 2011 12:12 am at 12:12 am #749560WolfishMusingsParticipant

The person asked what we did in kindergarten. No one *had* to respond — we all did by choice. So I too was answering that I did not do so because I went to public school.
Why do you feel that that fact is so potent?

to be honest I don’t remember what we did in kindergarten, for my own kids they ususally have a pocket on in the knapsack that we devote to tzedakahMarch 14, 2011 5:55 am at 5:55 am #749562🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant

I had it sent in film canisters. my kids are looking over my shoulders and have no idea what I’m talking about!March 14, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #749565bptParticipant
I don’t remember the penny part, but do remember my mother assuring me she would wait by the bus stop until I got back at 2:00 (and I fully believed her).
Still do!March 14, 2011 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #749566stickynoteMember
I just brought my credit card to class every day and said swipe! 🙂March 14, 2011 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #749567Mother in IsraelMember
I send it in the little zipper pocket of my kids’ backpacks. Mitzvah notes go in there too. I have to admit that they often come back home a few times before the kid remembers to take it out.
