Several Carroll schools have announced projects to raise money and collect necessities for tsunami relief. Projects include: Eldersburg Elementary School pupils are holding a drive, "America Sends Love," to raise money that will be turned over to the Church of the Brethren for tsunami victims. Pupils have been encouraged to think of others, sacrifice a personal luxury such as a toy or an ice cream, and donate their change. Containers have been set up in each suite for donations, and fifth-graders are collecting and counting the money on a daily basis.

A committee that has spent a year studying fund raising by PTAs, student organizations and booster clubs in county public schools is close to recommending rules that would limit, but not eliminate, the activities.The study was prompted by two concerns that came to public attention in 1989.School officials worried that fund raising was taking up too much class time, and PTA council officers were concerned that individual school PTAs were being asked to raise money for items that the school system should have supplied, such as paper, books and art supplies.

Marlene Stivers thought she could raise $10,000 for Hospice of the Chesapeake by raffling a handmade quilt. She started stitching the specially designed quilt in April and, with the help of volunteers from hospice, sold raffle tickets throughout the county.

ALL OVER MARYLAND, in almost every small town, groups of volunteer women -- dubbed auxiliaries -- raise money for good causes, supporting the men who volunteer for the perilous work of saving lives and property from fire. In Hyattstown, for example, the auxiliary recently raised $94,000 to put an elevator in the firehouse. In Lineboro, they put on four haunted hayrides to raise money for a variety of purposes -- and sold 11,000 tickets. If they didn't take the auxiliaries for granted, most Marylanders would want to see this rich tradition of service grow and strengthen.

CONGRESSIONAL Republicans are about to begin another rampage against public broadcasting.Because some public television stations -- WETA in Washington, D.C., and WGBH in Boston -- exchanged donor lists with the Democratic National Committee, Republicans are threatening to cut this year's funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.Their outrage is a bit strange, since Republicans' practice of slashing federal grants is one of the reasons stations must exchange lists to raise money.

Lynn Jaquet was impressed when she learned that students at Bel Air Elementary School were going to raise money to fight leukemia, particularly given that the cause hit close to home. Her son Zachary was diagnosed with leukemia four years ago at age 6. After completing three years of chemotherapy in June, Zachary's illness is in remission, and now the fourth-grader has a chance to help other children with cancer. "Zachary came home from school, handed me the letter about the fundraiser, then went up to his room," the Bel Air resident said.
