Bikini Car Wash Fundraisers: Are They Appropriate For Girls?

bikini car wash fundraisers

No matter where you live, I'm sure you've seen young people standing at busy intersections with big signs advertising their car wash fundraisers.

These fundraising activities are a popular way for schools, clubs, sports teams, youth groups, etc. to make money—especially in the summer.

But what bothers some parents is the fact that the teeny-tiny bikinis and short shorts worn by many of the teenage girls attract much more attention than the hand-written "Car Wash Today" signs...

Do you know what I'm talking about?

I've heard that many group moderators, teachers, and school officials are starting to prohibit girls from wearing bathing suits and other questionable outfits because these often attract too much unwanted attention. But I've seen enough scantily clad teens recently to know that not all authority figures think this issue is something to be concerned about.

It's a tricky situation because so many of these groups and charities really need the money brought in from the fundraisers. And the more customers that come, the better. Still, there are so many creeps out there: I can understand why parents are so nervous.

What do you think about this issue? Do you allow your kids to participate in car wash fundraisers? Are there rules about appropriate attire?

I JUST RECENTLY MADE A POST TO GROUP MOTHERS WITH TWEEN DAUGHTERS. I HAVE ALLOWED MY DAUGHTER TO HELP HER SOCCER COACH WITH A FUNDRAISER RELAY FOR LIFE . I MADE HER WEAR NORMAL LENGHT SHORTS WITH TSHIRT. BIKINIS OR SWIMSUITS ARE MADE FOR SWIMMING OR SUNBATHING IN MY OP. I AGREE THAT WEARING APPROPRIATE ATTIRE IS A MUST FOR THOSE UNDER 18 AND THOSE WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND CONSEQUENCES.

I've seen this and as a mother of three dd's I always wonder what the heck the parents are thinking letting their teen or even tween dd prance around on a street corner like that...seems innappropriate to me. But then again, I am "the strict" mom apparently....lol

Absolutely not. There is no reason to be in a bikini on the side of the road around that age. Guys only come in there to get their cars washed by the girls for one sick reason...
