I come to you with hat in hand as a fellow Scouter. For years I have been able to squeak by through freelance work and selling ads on my sites. Over the last few months I have had to rely more on friends and family, but they can help no more. The bad economy and high unemployment is leaving me feeling like a ghost lost at sea. The good news is I am not here to “beg” for money, but instead to offer my immense gratitude for all Scouting has done for me. With that said there is a way you can help me...
If you can find it in your heart to help with a gift of $15, I will send you the below resource package (via email) as my thank you. All you have to do is use this paypal link, or contact me for other payment options. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=KPL7FLFLQ7UEG
(It should be noted most of this package can be found online, with enough time and effort.)
The resource package is made up of 800mb of resources and includes:
- 3 sets of Scout Challenges – each Scout challenge set is made up of 20 challenges and each individual challenge has 5 things for Scouts to do. Some challenges are skill based, others are meant to be kind of dumb and silly. They are already formated to be printed out on business card paper. Here is an example:
Only Scouts wearing a neckerchief may speak.
Have your Patrol stand in a circle.
Have your Patrol interlock arms.
Have each member stand on his left foot, only.
Rotate the circle 90 degrees right, then back 180 degrees left.
